Little Lesley & The Bloodshots play The Stephen Talkhouse
May 28, 2015 @ 10:00 pm - 11:55 pm$10
Little Lesley & The Bloodshots are a 3 piece female fronted Rockabilly band out of Brooklyn. These up-and-comers have been taking the scene by storm with their twangy roots sound and high energy live show. Little Lesley, the feisty blond bombshell on stand-up bass and lead vocals, brings it every time with an incredible voice and jaw-dropping bass moves. She’s a farmer’s daughter from upstate New York who began playing piano and singing Patsy Cline songs in backwoods bars at age 8. She moved on to guitar and most recently doghouse bass, writing and performing her own brand of roots Rock n’ Roll. Alongside her, Brian “Swifty” Swift rips out the rock and twang on 6 string. A preacher’s son from rural California, he has been writing songs and playing honky tonks and biker bars up and down the West Coast since the 80s when his band was part of the Reno punk rock scene that launched 7 Seconds. They met in Nevada and left together to start a new life in NYC where they met native Staten Islander Mr. Bobby Lee. Bobby’s no stranger to swingin’, high-energy Rock. All night long he keeps folks on their feets with his stylish beats. Together since Summer of 2012, Little Lesley &The Bloodshots have been making waves and making friends around the country with their honest approach to roots-Rockabilly. Known for their charismatic stage-presence and entertaining live show (don’t be surprised if Little Lesley hops right up on her bass in high-heels), they keep it rolling at NYC’s most famous Honkey Tonks and beyond. In their short time together, they are tearing up the rockabilly circuit and have played major festivals including Ink N Iron and Viva Las Vegas, and have shared the stage with legends: Merle Haggard, Wanda Jackson, Eddie & The Hotrods, Kim Lenz, and Robert Gordon. So go comb your hair, grab some whiskey, and get on out to see The Bloodshots for some of the best neo-Rockabilly in the world. And bring yer dancin’ shoes!
