Energetic singer/songwriter brings his upright bass and rockabilly hits to Ashwaubenon PAC
Bass Player Hall of Famer Lee Rocker is bringing his high-energy rockabilly show to the Ashwaubenon Performing Arts Center (PAC) as part of its National Series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15.
Famous for singing, playing, spinning and rocking his giant upright bass, Rocker is a founding member of the Stray Cats. Joined with the creative forces of Brian Setzer and Slim Jim Phantom, the Grammy-nominated group sold more than 10 million albums, garnered 23 gold- and platinum-certified records worldwide, and became music video pioneers in the infancy of MTV.
The Stray Cats’ mega hits like “Stray Cat Strut,” “Rock This Town,” and “Sexy and Seventeen” repeatedly brought rockabilly music to the top of the charts. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame would go on to recognize “Rock This Town” as one of the “500 Most Important Songs in Rock.”
While consistently performing around the globe since 1980, Rocker has been featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, appeared on Saturday Night Live and toured with The Rolling Stones.
Rocker’s concert will include Stray Cats’ greatest hits as well as many other songs performed in his career that followed with music legends George Harrison, Ringo Starr, John Fogerty, The Rolling Stones and more.
The performance is sponsored by Kroll’s West, with tickets starting at $39. Subscriber and group discounts are available. To purchase or learn more about this or other upcoming events, visit ashwaubenonpac.org or call (920) 494-3401.
