Rio & The Rockabilly Revival play their last show in the States before heading overseas with Ryan Dillaha and The Miracle Men and Flight of Fire.
With the famous recording of Reverend Snow condemning the evils of rock and roll, Rio & The Rockabilly Revival hit the stage with “Runaway Train”. They started at 100% and never came back down. This Detroit based blast from the past consists of Rio Scafone (vocals), Junebug Harris (bass) Renee Turner (backing vocals), Yana Levovna (backing vocals), Kelly Bevez (backing vocals), Charlie Bongo (drums), Jimmy Alter (guitar), and Eric Schabo (saxophone). Rio’s show is full of energy and action, they bring back the old days of rockabilly, but this is rockabilly like we haven’t heard before.
Scafone is a vixen on the stage. She’s a passionate performer who really knows how to bring the audience in. While she is a powerhouse, what makes this band fantastic is that each member holds their own on the stage.
