THE STRAY CAT… LEE ROCKER!

Lee Rocker made his mark singing, playing, standing on, spinning and rocking his giant upright bass as a founding member (along with Brian Setzer and Slim Jim Phantom), of the Grammy nominated music group The Stray Cats, who sold over 10 million albums and garnered 23 gold and platinum certified records worldwide.  Come hear Lee and his band perform Stray Cats hits like “Sexy and Seventeen”, “Stray Cat Strut” and “Rock This Town”, plus lots of other rockin’ songs Lee performed post-Stray Cats with music legends from Ringo Starr and George Harrison to John Fogerty and The Rolling Stones.

    The Stray Cat Lee Rocker:

    Grammy-nominated musician and Bass Player Hall of Famer

    Lee Rocker and the Stray Cats sold more than 10 million records, garnered an astounding 23 gold and platinum records worldwide, and were music video pioneers of the MTV.  The Stray Cat’s worldwide mega hits “Stray Cat Strut”, “Sexy and Seventeen” and “Rock this Town” have become a part of the fabric of rock and roll. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has included “Rock this Town” as one of the 500 most important songs in rock.

    From the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine, to appearing on Saturday Night Live, to headlining the US Festival and touring with the Rolling Stones, Lee Rocker has seen and done it all.   In addition to the Stray Cats and the Rolling Stones, Rocker has toured and performed with George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, and John Fogerty.  In 1982 Rocker and his father Stanley Drucker, (classical clarinetist) both received Grammy nominations; this was something that has only occurred twice in the history of the Grammy Awards.  In 2012 Lee appeared on Broadway in the hit musical "Million Dollar Quartet" and in 2014 he was inducted into the Bass Player Hall of Fame. Rocker has received numerous honors for his contributions to music and the arts, including being inducted to the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, the Long Island Music Hall of Fame and he is a recipient of the Visionary Artist Award by the City of Laguna Beach California. In his concert performances, Lee Rocker rocks every town and leaves every audience on their feet and cheering.

    Lee Rocker has been consistently touring, recording and performing around the globe since 1980 and has cultivated a fanatically loyal following of rockers, rebels and all types of music lovers.   He is known for making his upright double bass appear as if it were a lightweight instrument as he spins, throws it in the air, catches and plays it on stages throughout the world.  His concert show is a time for him to tell stories about his days on the road and in the music business for the last 35 years – including sharing stories about his adventures lugging the giant piece of equipment around.

    Over the last three decades, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys have kept up a constant cycle of traveling back and forth across the lower 48, then hopping across the pond to Europe and beyond. They bring with them a brand of American music that has earned them an induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, several national television appearances, guest spots on The Grand Ole Opry, and a slew of adoring fans.

    "I truly love being out on the road, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to sing my songs all over the world," said Sandy. "But when I'm away from the U.S. for too long, it's like I need a recharge... like I need a solid dose of everything Americana. Give me a Chuck Berry song while rolling down the interstate, or a truck stop conversation with a waitress who once danced with Lefty Frizzell, and I'm good for another three thousand miles”.

    When does something that looks and sounds retro or classic, actually become a new and different thing altogether?
    It’s hard to do, and believe me people have tried with varying degrees of success. But, that is just what is happening
    with a band out of Orange County California, THE JACKPOT CLUB!
    By first appearances THE JACKPOT CLUB would seem like just another rockabilly band. Take a twangy guitar and an
    upright bass, mix in a swingin’ drummer, salt to taste, etc. But after listening to TJC take the crowd through a set or
    two of music you begin to realize that this is much more than just a ‘rockabilly’ band! No other trio would take the
    crowd (in just one set, mind you) from bar-room rock-n-roll of a classic like ‘Mercury Blues’ or ‘Seven Nights To Rock’,
    to a rocked-up Cajun swing ‘Jambalaya; or the crooning of Sinatra’s ‘That’s Life’! Who would dare move from the Las
    Vegas swing of Sam Butera to Nick Lowe’s punky power-pop to Louis Jordan’s rhythm and boogie? Who? Really?
    Only one band dares to and THE JACKPOT CLUB dares, and does!
    THE JACKPOT CLUB was hatched from the semi-fertile mind of Vocalist/Guitarist Andy Winston. A true rock & roll
    soul (Citizen Fear, The Tickets, Spindizzys, ‘Lectric Chairs, MOJOMASTER!), Andy was raised around the swingin’
    sounds of Frank Sinatra, Louis Prima and Count Basie before discovering the sound of the electric guitar. And it was
    only after his dreams of being ‘the next Ted Nugent’ waned (thank goodness!), that Andy began to cut his teeth
    during the punk heyday of 79-81. His band Citizen Fear (see compilation Killed by Death #13) played the legendary
    Southern California punk rock clubs of the day. The 1980’s and 90’s saw Andy spending over 1,000 nights on stage
    with Orange County power-pop stars The Tickets, including recording the collectible cassette-only release, “Make A
    Record”, that was recently re-released on CD by Brewery Records.
    But in spite of this long and semi-storied history, Andy felt something was missing. Something was calling. Something
    primal and rootsy. The idea for a new band began to form in his mind, and almost against his will. His vision, you ask?
    To have a band with the roots of rock-n-roll and the heavy power of punk, but the swing and dance-floor filling energy
    of jump-blues. Could he reach back to a time when songs had energy and excitement, but keep an edge that would
    remain relevant to today’s audiences? As you know, there are a lot of ‘revivalist’ and ‘fashionable’ classic rock and
    tribute bands out there, but Andy couldn’t and wouldn’t let THE JACKPOT CLUB play that game. “The filter through
    which I live music didn’t stop at 1959 or end with one artist. It continued through the electric blues of the 60’s, the
    1970’s rock and punk, as much as it reaches back to the swing and blues of 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s”, says Andy.
    Did our hero achieve his dream?
    Yes he did! And you need to hear THE JACKPOT CLUB for yourself!
    Drummer/Vocalist Joel Tetzlaff is a drum industry veteran with more than 30 years of drumming experience, both on
    stage and in the studio. His passion for the drums started as a teen after picking up his first pair of drum sticks, and
    he has never looked back since. His battle scars have been earned with various bands throughout Southern California
    performing in classic rock, top 40 and tribute situations. Joel is always striving to put on the best show and sound for
    THE JACKPOT CLUB.
    Bassist/Vocalist Andy Zacharius is simply an old soul packaged in the body of a 30-something. With a musical
    knowledge and breadth of experience that some people 3 times his age have yet to achieve, Andy brings a musicality
    to the team that drives beat. Growing up with the bass in his hands, Andy has a swing and fingerboard deftness that
    adds big bass bottom to THE JACKPOT CLUB sound. Let him move you around the dance floor...
    THE JACKPOT CLUB is at home on the largest of concert stages, having opened shows for national headline acts
    such as The Mavericks, Billy Vera & The Beaters, Dick Dale, The Stray Cat Lee Rocker, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies,
    Headcat, Three Bad Jacks, Albert Lee & John Jorgensen, Big Sandy & The Fly-Rite Boys, Jimmie Vaughan, Big Bad
    Voodoo Daddy and The Royal Crown Revue, as they are in the smallest of bars playing 4-5 sets of music and leading
    the party charge! And it’s in those hot and sweaty venues where the dance floor is swingin’ and the drinks are slingin’
    where The Jackpot Club excels. Let them provide the soundtrack for your next event!
