The Band:

Voodoo Swing is Shorty Kreutz on lead guitar and vocals; Leeroy Nelson on drums; and Wesley Hinshaw on his ‘doghouse’ double-bass. Their unique ‘rip-it-up’ Rockabilly attracts England’s Nervous Records in 1993. Voodoo Swing's debut album "We're Usin' Code Names!" is followed by a second album, "Well, Okay Then!" released on Netherlands’ Rockhouse Records label. Voodoo Swing is also featured on Rockabilly compilations "American Rumble" and “The Sounds of Gasoline. ’’ The band also scores the soundtrack for the Lowrider documentary "Low and Slow," as well as “Rockabilly Vampire.” In 1998, Shorty is awarded "Best Electric Guitar Player" by Salt Lake's City Weekly Magazine reader’s poll.
In the early years, the band headquarters in Salt Lake City. After a long hiatus, the band regroups in Phoenix to document rebirth with Greasers Por Vida, self-released. In 2010 the band, releases “Refried Voodoo Beans” produced by Olivier Zahm of Electric Lotus Music. The band had just recruited the young Wesley Hinshaw on upright bass. His electro-kinetic slap bass playing sets the new Voodoo Swing sound apart from the flock. Voodoo Swing is rollin’ all over the western United States in their 1969 Lincoln Continental, tagging along a trailer full of gear. They also head to various major stops in Europe at popular Summer Festivals for their ardent European Rockabilly fans.


2011 is marked by Voodoo Swing’s enthusiastic support by Gretsch Guitars, Knucklehead Strings, and Cock Grease Pommade; while Electric Lotus Label, the roots music label for indie people, signs the band. The fruit of their collaboration with Olivier Zahm sets the horizon for mountains of releases, shows, and musical cross-pollination. The Band also embarks on multiple tours across Europe and the Western United States to establish Phoenix as a scene to be reckoned with.

Their new album Keep on Rollin’ is probably their best record. “You can easily recognize how our sound and arrangements mature throughout the 18 years we have been playing and recording music.” Leeroy says. “We also feature a couple other talented musicians, including Wyatt Maxwell on guitar, who currently tours with Wayne Hancock; and Bindy Modela, an incredible local singer, model and artist.

As a symbol of the band’s authenticity and commitment to Rockabilly culture, the new record features their tour vehicle, a ‘69 Lincoln Continental, suicide doors and more, on the cover. Listen to Voodoo Continental – a tribute to their trusty / thrusty car that never fails to get them on stage.
