What if Don McLean was wrong and the music didn't really die? What if the spirit of the music that inspired rebellious young America in the 1950s survived underground all these years, with musicians meeting at late-night jam sessions to trade licks and tell stories, the old guys showing the young guys how it's done, while mainstream commercial music marched ahead? If that happened, you would hear music that is vibrant and energetic, you'd see people doing the bop and shaking it for all it's worth on the dancefloor, you'd hear some old songs but they wouldn't be dragging you back to re-live the past, they'd be forcing you into the present, challenging you to live your life at full speed right now! You would hear The Colliders. The Colliders are Jim Kennedy on guitar, Hank Burnett on drums, and Bill Enderlin on bass, three guys who have played a whole lotta years, if you added them up. They've done the Top-40 gigs, they've recorded and hustled original songs, played the concert halls and the honky-tonks, they've fronted bands and played behind other people, and now they are lucky enough to play the music they love. The material is classic rockabilly, blues and honky-tonk from back in the day, mostly rockabilly-ish tunes with a big beat. Most of the songs date back to the days before the Beatles showed up on Ed Sullivan, back before guys in suits figured out there were millions to be made out of this rowdy noise the kids called "rock and roll." Back when the music was real.

Hank and the guys were true pro's. I hired them to play for a corporate event, the gig came with some rather strict guidelines and rules (due to the nature of the event) in which they had to play under and they were gracious in playing under the terms and conditions and went out of their way to make sure our clients and sponsors were happy! They even played a second night for me under very short notice when I didn't have anyone to cover the second nights gig. They showed up early and started on time and everyone had a great time! The Colliders were a joy to work with and wouldn't hesitate to hire them again. Thanks Colliders for making the event a success!
