Hello, Lexington Kentucky and the surrounding area, we have relocated to your area!
Danny Dean and the Homewreckers are an American rockabilly band from Los Angeles, California currently residing in Lexington, Kentucky. They are recognized as one of the pioneering neo-rockabilly groups of Southern California at a time when it was unaccepted by the rockabilly scene and would not be accepted for another decade. They are predominantly known by their peers and fans for playing early 1950s suit-and-tie rock 'n' roll akin to The Tyrones, Freddy Bell & The Bell Boys, and Charlie Gracie & His Wildcats with a modern 80s twist and new wave influences of 80s goes rockabilly versions of covers such as: Adam Ants "Goody Two Shoes" (Danny Dean and the Homewreckers, The Rockabilly Lover album), the Psychedelic Furs "Pretty in Pink" (Danny Dean and the Homewreckers, Growl album) and the Cures "Love Cats" (Danny Dean and the Homewreckers, The Rockabilly Lover album) to name but a few.
