The 10th Rockabilly Ruckus is going to be a special night of hot music, cars and crazy dancing. We are especially excited about introducing the amazing singer Nikki Hill to Tampa Bay Music fans:
"Years before singer Nikki Hill began performing, she wanted to create a persona for herself. This involved combining sources that wouldn't seem to fit together.
Hill, now 27, revisits the blues and rockabilly shouters of the 1950s, and her approach also echoes the phrasing of lesser-known, somewhat smoother soul singers such as Barbara Lynn. All of that comes from Hill's own research. Her poise goes back to childhood church experience in North Carolina. But while blues, R&B and gospel have always been intertwined, she was also a teenage punk rocker." - Chicago Tribune
