Elvis Birthday Dance w/J.P. McDermott & Western Bop

An Elvis show at IMT? Well “Jailhouse Rock” may not be a folksong, but Elvis has certainly become an American tradition. With its roots in R&B and Gospel, Rock & Roll is music of the folk and the “King” was one of its founding fathers.

Jan 8 would have been Elvis’ 71st birthday. Help us celebrate it with JP McDermott & Western Bop.
A native Washingtonian, J.P has sung every kind of music you can think of, but he's happiest belting out a Ray Price heartbreaker, or tearing into a Warren Smith rockabilly rave-up. To see what happens when Rockabilly, Honky Tonk and Classic Country collide, come listen to JP and his band: J.P. McDermott: Lead singer and rhythm guitar; Bob Newscaster: Lead Guitar; Louie Newmyer: Upright Bass; Tom Bowes: Drums; Andy Rutherford: Seriously Hot Lead Guitar.
