Main Street Blues, Jensen interceptors, Kokomo Kings: Take a bucket full of unpolished Mississippi juke joint boogie, and blend it with another bucket full of laid-back down home blues, add a teacup of swamp pop, a tablespoon of hillybilly, a pound of profane, ecstatic gospel and you'll have the Kokomo Kings, This is rock and roll before rock and roll was born: Rockabilly. Their music is as sharp as the creases in their trousers. The Jensen Interceptors feature Gary Martin’s trenchant vocals and harmonica; and John Bruce’s power-packed guitar. Energetic electric blues rock opens the show from Main Street Blues featuring guitarist/voicalist, Derek Smith.
