Stellar Shows Presents brought the Rockin’ Town Hall Boogie to the Yost Theater in Santa Ana on Saturday. The rockabilly and roots all star lineup included Larry Collins (one half of the fabulous Collins Kids from the 1950s), the dexterous Deke Dickerson, Kyle Eldridge & Rhythm Rounders (produced by Deke), Amber Foxx band, Abby Girl, Alice Wallace, Geoffrey Miller, and from Wild Records: Josh Sorheim and Elvis Cantu.
This vintage variety show takes you back to the golden years of rockabilly and western swing when top C&W performers appeared on a weekly TV show called Town Hall Party in LA. The Fabulous Collins Kids were superstars in this era, and Larry Collins made a special appearance to pay tribute to his late sister Lorrie Collins.
When not running the OCWeekly.com and OC Weekly’s social media sites, Taylor “Hellcat” Hamby can be found partying like it’s 1899.
