About Our Vintage Sound

IMG_1588_edited.jpg

The Mad Slap Tones specialize in breathing fresh life into vintage rock, rhythm and blues music. We have a strong focus on those hot guitar licks and flying piano sounds (kind of Brian Setzer meets Jerry Lee Lewis), and a tight rhythm section. We dive into 1950s slap-back influencers of rock, original rhythm and blues, jump music, boogie boogie, rockabilly, New Orleans, swing, many blues genres, and gems from 60s onward that where inspired by roots rock pioneers. We have one rule, it's got to be an a vintage style.  

 

In addition to Setzer and Lewis, we cover so many artists, from Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Hank Williams, B.B. King, Johnny Cash, Jimmy Reed, Link Wray, Nat King Cole, Bruce Springsteen, Bill Haley, Big Joe Turner, Ricky Nelson, and more!
