20 Flight Rockers is Ontario’s most ambitious rockabilly-themed band.
When putting together their show, 20 Flight Rockers consider a diverse repertoire of highly recognizable dance tunes from 1950’s to 2010’s as well as their original songs wrapped in an authentic rockabilly-themed live performance. That’s right, stage presence is as important to the band as repertoire and musical perfection of its delivery.
Due to the unique combination of instruments, including a percussion set built exclusively with cajones, an upright bass, and a hollow body guitar, as well as a diverse roster or special guest female vocalists, 20 Flight Rockers can deliver an exceptionally remarkable entertainment act from small venues such Castro’s, The Junction Music Hall, or Communist’s Daughter, to outdoor festivals, car shows, and full-scale open-air arenas without compromising the extraordinary classical rockabilly groove and sound.
It doesn’t matter if your event is rockabilly-themed or not, 20 Flight Rockers will get your crowd dancing and enjoying a cool stage show with old-school and contemporary hits. Looking and sounding great, the Rockers will be playing music that appeals to anyone, – old, young, music lovers, dancers, traditionalists, professionals, and hipsters.
Nothing silly, just rockabilly!
Like the great Keith Moon who would drum to the beat of his own, Ian has always had a passion for percussion and a flare to put his own spin on things. Melding into the classic 50-60 style, when drummers often used objects like shoe boxes in their work, Ian created a one-of-a-kind percussive experience with a unique cajon-based drum kit and his unorthodox drumming style. His exclusive setup includes an LP Americana Series Cajon Snare and a Meinl Cajon Drum.
Paul has been involved with folk, blues, rockabilly, country and pop bands in Europe and Canada since the age of 6. Beside guitar, he plays accordion, piano and harmonica. To recreate the authentic rockabilly sound, Paul traded all pedal effects for the clean natural ring of his favourite hollowbody Gretsch. His playing style is inspired by a diverse list of guitar icons, such as Django Reinhardt, John Lee Hooker, Brian Setzer, and Luke Doucet.
Following in the footsteps of upright bass icons like Lee Rocker, Milt Hinton, and Willie Dixon, Cameron carries on the slap bass tradition, infusing the Rockers’ sets with the driving, percussive quality that so often helps define rockabilly music. Equally versed in bass guitar, he also brings an electric element to the band when called for.
