J.P. McDermott and Western Bop are a hard-swinging rockabilly band working out of Orange County – Los Angeles, California after many years of success in the Washington, DC area. Popular performers at beer joints, swing dances, concerts, festivals and special events, they play the kind of music that makes you want to get up and dance. Specializing in Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Hank Williams (and many more) plus original tunes in the same vein, there really is something here for everyone to enjoy. But make no mistake – this is no oldies band. This is real, fresh, fun rock and roll, played like it was just written last night, and like your life depended on it. Their recordings have received critical acclaim, and J.P. has been named Country Vocalist of the Year by the Washington Area Music Association on several occasions. Come out and see what the fuss is all about Saturday the 11th at the Grand Social.
