Winner of the 2017 Ameripolitan Music Award for Rockabilly Female, and named the “Best Up-And-Coming Band” by Hudson Valley Magazine, Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones are New York’s premier Rockabilly, Roots Rock n’ Roll, Rhythm & Blues outfit.
Born from a hybrid of Lara’s former Rockabilly band The Champtones, and upright bassist Matt’s international Psychobilly act The Arkhams, The Ark-Tones hit the ground running in 2012, and haven’t slowed down since. This fun-loving bunch packs the dance floor with their own original musical offerings in the vintage style as well as re-workings of Rockabilly, Rock n Roll and Rhythm & Blues classics and standards. This “travelin’ band” is out there pleasing listeners of all ages and walks of life… wherever they roam.
Since the release of their first full length, The Battle of Bunker Hillbilly, Tex Railer’s Doomtown has become a high octane national touring act, hitting just about everywhere in this fine country with their heavy-honky tonkin’ sound. With a new release due this summer on Wayward Parade, it doesn’t look like they’ll be slowing down any time soon!
Combining outlaw country, surf, roots, and good ol’ rock n’ roll, Tex Railer’s Doomtown has played Muddy Roots, Heavy Rebel Weekender, the Psychobilly Luau and other festivals on the east coast, as well as extensive tours from coast to coast.
