Biography


The Hitman


The only British rock 'n' roll band to be selected for Wayne Hemingway's 2012 Vintage Festival, this incredible rock 'n' roll 6 piece band is a glorious celebration of everything fab' about the 1950's. This red hot, rocking band fills the dance floor and puts a big smile on everyones' faces.


As well as playing classic 50's and 60's rock 'n' roll, The Hitmen can Jump, Jive and Jazz it up with Smooth Italiano, Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Trad' and bespoke swinging first dances for weddings.


'The Hitman', have played alongside Scotty Moore, Bill Haley's Comets, Slim Gailard, Linda Gail Lewis.. and have supported such greats as Chuck Berry, Elton John (40 nights with Elton!), Dr John, Cockney Rebel, Shakin' Stevens and Paul McCartney. The R 'n' R Soc' (as the
Rocking Scene alias 'The Stargazers') have toured most countries, including Japan and most recently The USA where they played New York and the East Coast and supported Ruth Brown at the 2006 Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender.


And despite their relative youth, members of The Rock 'n' Roll Society have individually recorded and played with rock n roll legends Carl Perkins, Freddie Bell, The Jordinaires, Scotty Moore, The Belmonts, The Comets, Junior Walker, The Teenagers (Frankie Lymon), The Spaniels, D.J. Fontana. TV apperences include performances with Amy Winehouse, Beverly Knight, Bob Geldorf, The Human League (!) Geno Washington, Desmond Dekker, Sleepy La Beef, Hank Wangford, The Jodimars, Slim Gaillard, Don Lang, the list goes on..


The Hitman's treatment of 50's Rock 'n' Roll, Boogie Woogie and Jive has a freshness and authority that brings so many classics to life and gets the crowd onto their feet from the first note to the last.. Just as it was with the original beat driven dance music!
