Graham Fenton (UK) takes the place of Rudy “Tutti” Grayzell (USA) at Summer Jamboree #19, who is unable to perform due to unforeseen circumstances.
Another star of R’n’R history has joined the line up for Summer Jamboree #19: singer Graham Fenton (UK). The original Rockabilly Rebel will be in Senigallia on 6 August taking the place of Rudy “Tutti” Grayzell (USA) who unfortunately won’t be joining us now due to unforeseen health issues. The Summer Jamboree wishes the rockabilly pioneer dubbed “Tutti” by Elvis a speedy recovery and hopes to see him at the next edition of the Festival.
Like Grayzell, Fenton is no stranger to the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame. He has toured with Carl Perkins and Bo Diddley. He has played with Bill Haley, Sonny Burgess, Charlie Rich, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Charlie Gracie, Wanda Jackson, Johnny Cash, and Brenda Lee to name but a few, and has had the honour of regularly fronting his hero’s – the one and only Gene Vincent – 1957 Band, The Blue Caps. Not forgetting of course, his success as an artist in his own right with his band Matchbox in the 1980s. Winning a gold disc award for his hit record ‘Rockabilly Rebel’, he has toured the world and lived a life immersed in Rock’n’Roll. As a child, he grew up listening to the sound of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Bill Haley, and as a musician, he has always been, and continues to be, dedicated to paying tribute to the 1950s legends and heroes of the airwaves, and keeping the heart and soul of Rock’n’Roll alive and kicking!
