The Rivers Rockabilly Trio recently signed with Phoenixville music management company, Iron Town Productions. “We have focused on booking venues and specialty events the last year,” says owner Jane Tucker. “However, when the opportunity to manage The Rivers presented itself, we jumped in on it.”

According to Tucker, the group’s flexibility and multiple incarnations were the deciding factor. The Rivers Rockabilly Trio has put together three different shows that work well with theaters, schools, festivals and special events. In addition to the Buddy Holly show, they have created Rockabilly Days, which features the first rock’n’roll hits of the 1950s and a children’s show called Silly Rockabilly.

The signing of the group by Iron Town Productions is not the first collaboration between The Rivers Rockabilly and Jane Tucker. The trio’s guitarist, Stu Frederick and Jane Tucker invented the Blob Ball together. The Blob Ball is a kick-off party for Phoenixville’s annual Blob Fest weekend. BlobFest celebrates the 1957 cult and sci-fi classic, The Blob which was filmed in Phoenixville and features Steve McQueen in his first starring role. The Blob Ball includes The Rivers Rockabilly Trio performing 1950s classics, swing dancing, costume contests and 1950s themed food.

The Rivers Rockabilly Trio includes Stu Frederick, on guitar, J. B. Smith on percussion and Bradley Keough on bass. All three sing in the trio and have extensive backgrounds in the Philadelphia area music scene. For more information on The Rivers Rockabilly Trio visit the band’s website at www.theriversonline.com.
