Is Pacific show the Stray Cats' final strut?
Review: If indicators that it was the rockabilly trio's last show hold true, at least the group went out rockin'.

Could this have been the last time the Stray Cats rock this town? The band's official Web site might make you think so.

Shows this year in Europe and Australia are listed as being part of "The Farewell Tour," while Tuesday night's gig at Pacific Amphitheatre was billed as "the only U.S. show in 2008." Vendors were even selling T-shirts that read much like a tombstone: "Stray Cats: 1978-2008.
Yet toward the end of the set vocalist-guitarist Brian Setzer eluded to the possibility of another  ... continue reading

80-year-old Vegas stripper still does it 'classy'
Tempest Storm's act is a time capsule. She knows nothing of poles. She would never
put her derriere in some man's face. Her prop of choice is a boa, perhaps the
occasional divan. Indeed, the 80-year-old burlesque queen takes her clothes off very

Cheney chats with Stray Cat
From: The Courier-Mail July 24, 2008

THE Stray Cats' 1980 hit Runaway Boys changed Chris Cheney's life.

He was only five when it was released, but when he discovered it as a 13-year-old it
introduced him to the rockabilly sound that linked back to the music his parents

Seeing the Stray Cats live in 1990 was a massive influence on the formation of The
Living End – Scott Owen bought a stand-up double bass instead of a piano and
the pair formed a covers band called Runaway Boys.

Rockabilly Roundup 2, 18 – 19 – 20 July 2008, De Mortel ( NL)
For the second the Rockabilly Roundup was held in a small Dutch town. This year the location was changed to riding stables, but what a great location it was. Certainly with the weather outside it couldn’t hurt to be inside. As was the case last year the place was well equipped. There was the possibility to take a shower, nice toilets and a big meadow to set up camp for the weekend.. … Franky is gone tell you a bit about Friday night first… . Opening band on friday was Catslappin' Trio or Catslappin' Chrissy without leadsinger Chrissy who's pregnant again. Congrats from the whole Billy Bop team !
Setlist consisted of both "new" songs and  ... continue reading

The Rock-a-Bops at the Rambler.
This band is really something playing real and authentic rock & roll songs.
Of course they played the songs of their CD "Wild Child " (2007) and classics like California sun, Blue moon of Kentucky,Tahalassie Lasie, Johnny Machine and Bop-a-lena.
The small crowd (where were the lovers of real rock & roll ) gets excited and calling out for more.
A band to remember
