“Some say that Rockabilly is music for the old.  I don’t agree.  When a 19 year old truck driver blazed a Rockabilly trail out of Memphis, TN, in 1954 it was very much music for the young.  And 66 years later that’s still true as the teenaged Dixie Fried Hep Katz blaze their own Rockabilly trail out of Enderby BC.  These Katz are the real deal!”

We enjoy playing for people and pets! This one really liked Logan.
Even in Covid, our fans stay focused on us - watching us in practice!
