Local band The Rockabilly Love Cats will play 7 p.m. Saturday at a dinner show at 151 Union Square, Grass Valley.

The group is a traditional three-piece rockabilly band playing classic and original high energy rockabilly tunes.

This young trio has a prestigious rock ‘n roll lineage going back three generations. T



he band is a genuine family affair, consisting of a father, son, and cousin:

Ivan Longacre, crooner sensation and honkytonk legend;




Rob Longacre, award winning lead guitarist;

Lucas Kuhn, multi-talented bassist.

Their style of rockabilly music is a wild, hepped-up meeting between early rock ‘n roll and old school rhythm & blues.

Played with spare instrumentation in true rockabilly style, with a twangy electric guitar and an acoustic stand-up bass whose strings are snapped percussively in a technique called “slap-back”.

Their music catalog consists of hits by rockabilly legends such as Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Johnny Burnette, and Elvis Presley. Along with top hit covers, the Rockabilly Love Cats also have a number of original songs, you can sample them on Reverb Nation and YouTube.

Whether it’s a barn, backyard, or main stage, The Rockabilly Love Cats will make every event a full-fledged rockabilly revival experience and a rowdy good time!

The Rockabilly Love Cats formed in 2013 and are based out of Grass Valley.

They were recently nominated by the readers of Sacramento News & Review for best rockabilly band 2016; voting is open until March 7.
