Biography

Fast moving Rockabilly. Heard around the world on many Hotwire.com TV commercials.

Family friendly, dozens of repeats at major California festivals such as The Gilroy Garlic Festival, yet also consistently booked at psychobilly events and punk clubs as support for acts as diverse as Three Bad Jacks, Deke Dickerson and The Chop Tops. World's largest car show - Route 66 Rendezvous, San Bernardino, CA.

Los High Tops is a car show favorite with over 50 Nor Cal car show appearances!

- Review by Richard Davis, Car Kulture Deluxe - (April 2009)

“Texas Radio,” the first track and the title of the CD refers to a somewhat rebellious yet intriguing sound from an unreachable far off radio station. “Honey Baby Sugar” keeps the love alive with a bit of bebop, perfectly placed instrumentals and a beat that made me want to listen over and over.

Two other notable tracks, “Hotwire” and “Death Agent 13” are well-played instrumentals. They’re shadowy, showy and fun. So if you like rockabilly skinned of affectation and free of gaseous and directionless hypertuniness (yes, I made up that word), this is the band for you.

- Rockabilly Magazine - Issue #45 (Apr. 2009)

"Smooth" is an apt description for the surf/billy/blues melange wrought by North Californians...(Los High Tops). "Melodic" also serves handily. "Aggressive" is here too, though rightly as but one cooperative factor in the splendid whole.

- Gaby Maag-Bristol, Blue Suede News (Mar., 2009)

"... energetic and melodic Rock’n’Roll and Rockabilly, powerful and danceable, fun and upbeat... I dig this release with mostly original material that rocks but emphasizes melody. It has a great sound with especially expert guitar work - a powerful performance by Los High Tops. "
