J.P. McDermott and Western Bop play red hot rockabilly and rock and roll (and some classic Orbison-style ballads).  With a fun, fresh mix of great songs by the likes of Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and the very early Beatles, plus a bunch of fine original tunes in the same vein, a good time is guaranteed.  But you never know what you’ll hear -- rockabilly influenced everybody from The Beatles to T-Rex to Led Zepellin to Elvis Costello and beyond.  This is no oldies act -- it’s live and vital and rockin’ and real. Back before folks knew it was Rock and Roll they called it Western Bop.
