Raucous, mean mix of ’50s garage…The Del Moroccos


Press release:
The Del Moroccos are a powerful new 8 piece rock ‘n’ roll band (guitar, bass, drums, piano, saxes, and 3 sexy frontwomen) who put out an awesome full-length show of dirty R’N’R, R&B material with girl group vocals. Knock the Ray-ettes and Link Wray together, with a blast of garage, a hit of late ’50s black rock ‘n’ roll, dress ’em up like Johnny Cash, and you get a raucous, mean mix of ’50s garage. The members are veteran Chicago musicians from the rockabilly, surf, ska, jazz and R & B scenes, from bands including: Mighty Blue Kings, Jimmy Sutton’s Four Charms, Deals Gone Bad, Cave Catt Sammy, The Stranger, Kevin O’Donnell’s Quality 6, Reluctant Aquanauts and The Stacks. The Del Moroccos lead guitar player Jimmy Sutton, hand picked the line up for this relentless new sound. The Del Moroccos set list features choice selections of obscure, rockin’ early independent record label songs and wild originals, capturing a sound that teeters somewhere between the 50’s and 60’s, and is performed with the emotion of early punk and mod revival. New on the scene, the Del Moroccos have shared the stage with SUN rocording artist Hayden Thompson, and the Queen of rockabilly, the legendary Wanda Jackson
