DEREK IRVING & HIS COMBO

“Retro Rock 'n Roll & Rockabilly” Derek Irving - guitar/ vocals Vance Ehlers - upright bass Jamie Lease - drums Ralph Rodriguez - guitar Derek Irving is American singer-songwriter and guitarist from the Bay Area. He is known for a retro sound rooted in the rock and roll, rhythm and blues, and rockabilly music of the 1950s The band is laden with throwback influences, faithful replications, and generic conformity, but there’s a sense of raging urgency—a distinctly contemporary urgency—that refuses such easy classification. The group’s influences are easy to pinpoint—Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, Carl Perkins et al.—but the group also recalls Freddie King, Bo Diddley, Link Wray and 50's rockabilly.
