Vinyl Stripes offer Rockabilly/Surf with a Modern Beat

Friday, June 15, 2018

The Vinyl Stripes perform.

By Tom Keener

This eclectic band not only evokes memories of car hops, Coke stands and Rockabilly performers like Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, but their harmonies and arrangements also feature modern beats.  

Their unforgettable tribute to Rock ‘n’ Roll’s king Elvis Presley includes 
Mystery Train.”  Released by Sun Records in 1955, this song ranked #77 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.  

On guitar and vocals, Steve Curry once worked with 1950’s icon Fabian.  Featured on the National Endowment for the Arts American Masterpieces touring program and the Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Roster, Steve has also played with Muddy Waters, Disney Studios and Bravo.  

After high school, Greg New joined the U. S Marine Corps.  Prior to joining The Vinyl Stripes, he played bass and vocals with Fish Fry Bingo, Driftin’ Outlaw Band, and Truck Stop Junkies, and on occasion, he plays with his wife’s band, The Bodarks. 
  
A Grammy-nominated recording artist, percussionist Mark Baker has played with a number of versatile artists, including singer-songwriter Phil Pritchett with punk rock legends the Riverboat Gamblers.

Kaitlin Pennell of the Denton Record Chronicle observed about The Vinyl Stripes, “A Front Runner in The DFW Music scene!”  Popular at car and motorcycle shows, The Vinyl Stripes is a regular at Winstar Casino in Oklahoma, Ft. Worth’s Main Street, and the Denton Arts and Jazz Festival.
