Deke Dickerson is coming to Wales

It's just been announced that July 7th sees one of the biggest rockin' nights to hit Wales in years. The legendary Deke Dickerson and the Ecco Fonics featuring Jimmy Sutton and Craazy Joe will perform at the Paget Rooms in Penarth, together with local hero John Lewis. The club hope the event will be successful enough that further shows can take place.

The promo blurb describes the four talents like this:

"Deke Dickerson is one of the most versatile and talented artists in American roots music today. Far more than just a rockabilly revivalist, he pushes the envelope by expertly drawing from virtually every 20th century musical genre: country, rhythm and blues, western swing, rockabilly, surf instrumentals, ghostly ballads and pedal-to-the medal rock 'n' roll. Armed with his signature double-necked guitar and batch of new songs from his latest release, he continues to entertain fans World wide. Bob Dylan even Interviewed Deke for his show. He is well known for his regular column in Guitar Player magazine & Hallmark Guitars have even produced the Deke Dickerson model guitar.

Jimmy Sutton has been playing the doghouse bass since his school days. Nominated twice by the Illinois Entertainer as the best bass player in Chicago, Sutton incorporates many diverse musical styles. He is also one hell of a singer and front man in his own right and can be seen with his own band The Four Charms

Crazy Joe has been playing guitar for nearly 25 years; producing and engineering recordings for 20 years; and designing musical, recording / hi-fi equipment for over a decade. He’s another amazing guitar picker and singer in this line up, who will be playing drums this tour .yea crazy But I’m sure he won’t be back on drums for long as these 3 swap instruments back and forth in a show that will leave you amazed

John Lewis Trio Mr Rimshots, Mr Johnny Bach, The front man of these two great bands is here with his new Rock’n’Roll trio bashing the piano and finger picking the guitar in a manner to scare to most accomplished musicians. He’s toured all over the world and has work with Rock hero’s to Cult ledgends With his instantly recognisable voice he’ll rock you with great classic tunes & some songs written yesterday."
