Product Description

This is the awesome debut album of Jack Knife & The Sharps, led by the exceptional vintage guitar playing of Rick Hollister. Formed in 1984, they have become one of the leading rockabilly bands playing in Minnesota today. Hollister is joined by Kevin Wheelock on drums and Jack Erickson on upright bass. Rockabilly and roots music fans enjoy Rick Hollister's precise, deep toned guitar sounds and right-on-the-money vocals and find the relentless rhythms from the bass and drums to be irresistible. Jack Knife & The Sharps' primary musical style is rockabilly, although they blend different musical styles with ease and artistry. Country, blues, swing and surf sounds all come together in one of the most spirited sets of good-time, rockin' music you will hear. Hollister's original songs are also standouts that could have been written 40 years ago and when the band plays the classics, they do it with a unique upbeat style that can't help but get under your skin. The group roars onto the stage like a custom built vintage car with all the chrome and flash and no muffler. Their music is fast, loud, fun and definitely made for dancing. Retro rockers, rockabilly fans and swing dancers count them as one of their favorite dance bands in the Upper Midwest.
