About Kristi Jean and her Ne'er-Do-Wells

Band name: Kristi Jean and Her Ne'er-Do-Wells 

Brief Description: A jumpin' collision between 1950's steel guitar infused county and bass-slapping', guitar-twangin' early rockabilly beats. Driven by the feisty and authentic voice of Kristi Jean, the band relives the days of swingin' 50's honky-tonks, all with a their own twist.

Full Description: There was a collision of musical styles in the early 1950's: traditional country artists and their steel guitars ran headlong into a new jumpin' style of jazz and rhythm-and-blues with gritty guitars and cranked amplifiers. The result was the harbinger of rockabilly and early rock n' roll. The collision was a musical big-bang with a bright flash; but the flash was short-lived. Within a few years, the rockabilly and rock n' roll artists shunned their country roots. Kristi and Her Ne'er-Do-Wells re-introduces those twanging rockabilly guitars and slappin' doghouse basses with their steel guitar and country yodelin' roots. 

Genre: Country boogie/traditional country/early rockabilly. The band has labeled the style "Country-Billy" or "Honky-tonk-a-billy swing."
