February 2006 Update:
The Peashooters are back in business!
Was it really four years? We had so much fun reuniting for JP McDermott's recent
Buddy Holly tribute show we've decided to dust up the bus and start accepting gigs again! Too many good songs that we need to play again .. and some new ones too!
The Peashooters play traditional mid-50s style
rockabilly music. This Washington DC area quartet is an exciting band whose members have played with Danny Gatton, Pink n
Black, Nils Lofgren, Evan Johns, Out Behind The Barn, Reluctant Playboys, Jumpin' Jupiter, Western Bop, the Old Line Skiffle
Combo and others.
Their material includes songs by Elvis, Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent and Bill Haley, as well as
some great stuff from lesser known artists like Joe Clay, Curtis Gordon, Glen Glenn, Sid King & the Five Strings, and
many Peashooters originals written by Jason Hicks.
The Peashooters have appeared at Half Moon BBQ, Cowboy Cafe, Iota
and the Night of 100 Elvises, playing shows with the likes of Deke Dickerson and Cave Catt Sammy. Vinylux Records included
a Peashooters original on a recent sampler of upcoming releases. Give a listen. A guaranteed rockin boppin good time!
