Rockabilly ain't supposed to be nice music - its a bastard begot of hillbilly simplicity and
r & b vulgarity...
Leaving a trail of grease stained pillows, broken hearts and busted amps in their wake The Greasemarks have play desperate 50's rockabilly raw & right! A bassist slapping-out-the-rhythm, while the drummer holds the beat; a guitarist not thinkin' much beyond keepin' the chords live, & a young, drunk, explosion of nervous energy up front, barely able to hold the acoustic guitar in his hand as he chokes out the words.
The Greasemarks cut their teeth playing all over Southern Ontario, Quebec and the Northern US. From the Shadow - Guelph's filthiest dive bar - to backyards, basements, weddings, clubs & festival stages, making friends where ever they go. With hundreds of shows, and a couple successful tours, under their belt highlights include twice playing Montreal’s Red, Hot & Blue Rockabilly festival, The New England Shake Up, Winnipeg's River City Rumble, Halifax’s East Coast Rockabilly Riot, The Maritime Shakedown Rockabilly Festival, Toronto's East End Rockabilly Riot, as well as surviving nights at Mike's Honky Tonk, and residencies in Guelph, Hamilton & Toronto.
