Rockamole -2010



Dan Sullivan and Chris Hillier crossed paths back in 2002. They met working as first year school teachers in Round Rock, Texas. Their first gig was a school holiday party at a local watering hole. The owner of the place liked their style and sound so much he booked them every Friday as the "happy hour" entertainment.

With influences from Kiss, John Mellencamp, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Johnny Cash, The Detentions forged their own style of music they call "Rockamole!" A little rock and roll with a coastal country soul! The Detentions' rockamole has been helping folks "retire one weekend at a time" for over five years now.

From Central Texas to the Gulf Coast, The Detentions have played in almost every beer hole, juke joint, back yard, speakeasy, farmer's market, dance hall, driveway, rec center, boutique, holiday party, wedding reception, tailgate, birthday, BBQ, roadhouse, tourist bar and beach shanty. Their music reflects their motto, "Nothing Tastes Like a Friday!"

They released their first album of all original tunes entitled "Rockamole" in September of 2010. Songs from Rockamole are currently in frequent rotation on Permanent Vacation Radio and Tropic Wall Radio.
