WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Featuring: ROBERT GORDON Performing Classic ELVIS & Robert Gordon Favorites! For more than 30 years, Robert Gordon has been one of the defining musical influences of his generation. Delivering his vocals with power and intensity, he has created a unique rock & roll attitude - driven by love, hurt, sadness and absolute conviction. Long before the first rehearsals of The Stray Cats and the numerous rockabilly bands that followed, Gordon reinvented the rockabilly sound of the '50s and introduced it to the punk rock audiences of the '70s. After a stint in bands like the Tuff Darts in the '70s, Gordon pursued a solo career and began performing raucous rockabilly, the music he grew up on in Washington, D.C. He paired up with veteran guitarist Link Wray for his first two albums, Robert Gordon with Link Wray and Fresh Fish Special. The latter also featured Elvis Presley back-up singers The Jordanaires. These critically-acclaimed records were released during punk's heyday and were subsequently embraced by that scene. Besides his own songs, Gordon covered songs made famous by Johnny Horton, Bill Monroe, Gene Vincent and Billy Lee Riley, as well as songs by Bruce Springsteen, Marshall Crenshaw and John Lennon.
