Houserockers to reunite at Hatchie Fall Fest

           

BROWNSVILLE, TN (October 4, 2010): In 1956 the “Houserockers” rocked Brownsville, and West Tennessee, with their unique mix of rock and roll, blues, Dixieland and big band music. The band continued until it morphed into the 60’s as the “Playboys.”

 

During an eight year period, members graduated and were replaced with younger musicians. On October 16, at the Hatchie Fall Fest in Brownsville, five of the members of the horn line will join the Alex Harvey Band for a special “Houserockers Reunion.” This group has not performed together since 1960.

 

Original members, Alex Harvey, Herbert Adams and Joe Sills, will be joined by later members, Jeff Hooper and J. D. Clinton for this 50 year reunion event. The Houserocker Reunion Band will feature Hooper and Adams on trombone, Clinton on the tenor sax and Sills on trumpet. Alex Harvey will provide the vocals... vocal.

 

 

 

 

Relive the past when Alex Harvey, and the Houserockers, take the main stage at 6 p.m., on the historic court square. For more information about the Hatchie Fall Fest and a complete schedule of events and performances, visit www.hatchiefallfest.com, or call 731-780-5144.
