We Wanna Boogie PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

We Wanna Boogie free pdf Rock and roll pioneer and Newport native Sonny Burgess is a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. In this book full of personal interviews and remembrances, Burgess and his band tell of their original recordings for Sun Records in the 1950s- their shows with greats such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis- and their success in the contemporary rockabilly revival. This also is the history of a once prominent and spirited Delta community of extensive agricultural wealth. Newport was home to numerous music clubs that hosted national artists as well as illicit backroom gambling. Burgess is a product of this history, and his vivacious music is shaped by his hometown and the dramatic transfor-mation of southern rural life it witnessed.
