Rockin’ Bonnie Western Bound Combo – (EN)

They have been around for years with their fine stage show mixin’ up a traditional steel guitar sound with a lot of rockin’ energy joining their love for hillybilly bop, western swing, honky tonk, country and a mighty rockabilly disposition.

They have worked hard at honing a slick, polished style as evidenced by their rich discography filled with obscure gems, as well as, never dull original numbers.

Looking good, in eye-catching western vintage suits, the rockin’ Hillbilly Stuff from Italy has a lot to say using the language of country music and ol’ rock ‘n’ roll.
