Nervous Rex

Nervous Rex - Neurotic Rock, Pop and Blues Covers and originals.

From their Facebook page: Nervous Rex was accidentally formed in June of 2004 by four rock and jazz musicians of curiously diverse backgrounds, who happened to share a passion for music and the desire to express it in its many colors. This formed the basis of a crazy experiment, and a week after formally introducing the members of the band to each other, Nervous Rex played their first gig. The experiment proved to be a success when they were invited back to play the following week.

The band took off faster than anyone would have expected. In their first year, they earned a house band gig, and played at Sturgis on the River and the Rockin’ Rib Fest. The band went their own separate ways in early 2007, after two of the members moved to Los Angeles, California. The band had a brief revival with some new members, but the band and the name were officially retired in 2008.

In 2012 Vid and Jerry revived the band, and enlisted the guitar and vocal talents of frequent collaborator, Jeff “Doc VH” VenHorst. Nervous Rex is back together, with an updated sound!

Old 57s

The Old 57s, the ultimate 1950s Vintage Rock band that play only the greatest songs from the first decade of Rock 'N Roll. A vast repertoire of over 900 tunes from 1954-1968 including such artists as: Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash, The Ventures, Johnny Brunette, Ritchie Valens, Johnny Rivers, Bill Haley, Del Vikings, Bobby Darin, Little Richard, Link Wray, Carl Perkins, Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, Dion,
Gene Vincent, The Coasters, Jerry Lee Lewis, and many, many more.

The Old 57s not only play the #1 hits from the '50s, they've become a real rock n' roll band from the '50s. Their true to the era image stems from their use of vintage amps and guitars, a flashy upright bass, and the old style Shure 55 microphones; to their wardrobe, dialog, classic vocal effects, light show, and a very high energy performance; this band will make you think it's 1957 all over again!

So bring your dancing shoes and drinking boots, roll out the '57 Chevy, pick up your best gal, and get ready dance all night to the songs that made music history.
