The HuLaLas, from Asheville, NC, come to us like a phoenix rising from the ashes of the Hawaiian frenzy fire that was the Hula Cats! Scott Sharpe (of Steelin’ Time, The Good Old Boys, and the incredible Blue Rags) on steel guitar, Cary Fridley (of Down South and Freight Hoppers) on bass & sweet, sweet vocals, and Jason Krekel (of the Mad Tea, Snake Oil Medicine Show, Larry Keel, & more) on the guitar and cracked vocals and heck maybe even the ukulele will all be shredding the Happa Haole Hawaiian hits as only mainlander country folk can do, and melting faces with steel guitar rags and the top 40 hits of the 20’s & 30’s…the perfect accompaniment to a pig roastin’ lei-wearin’ hula dancin’ party!
The Krektones blend the surf swagger of the Ventures with the scorching guitar of Link Wray, and just a wee bit of Tav Falco psychobilly to make a beat that makes it pretty impossible to stand still while listening. The Krektones feature Jason Krekel at lead, Dave Gay on bass, and Lance Wille on drums. Dave & Lance were the rhythm for such garage monsters as Unholy Trio and the Reigning Sound! Don’t let the sequined tuxedo jackets fool you—these boys will rip it up.
Here’s a preview with The Krektones…
