Ray "Catfish" Copeland Band
The Twilight Drifters
|November 20 - Ray "Catfish" Copeland Band - $10
“Ray “Catfish” Copeland and his band are a rocking good time, putting their own stamp on roots music nuggets. They have excellent taste in picking covers and the range of material, John Prine to Lazy Lester and Bob Marley to Bob Dylan, speaks to their depth and fluidity. They make it all sound like their own.” -Alan Paul,author of the New York Times best-seller One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band.
The many rivers of song that flow through this stellar American roots music band just might be enough to finish off California’s drought. It surely brings rockabilly, rock and roll, blues,gospel, honky tonk and psychedelia together in a dazzling and powerful way. Ray “Catfish” Copeland’s got one boot in blues mud, one boot in a county creek. In this second album, Don’t Ever Take My Picture Down, “Catfish” and his seasoned band have built a choice follow-up to their 2015 debut, Got Love If You Want.
The band has carved an identifiable Americana sound and flow—hand sown and homegrown on the sunny front porch, in the back 40 swamp by way of Chuck Berry through Creedence Clearwater, to some swirling and gorgeous Clarence White country psychedelia ala The Byrds.
The good time nature of the band surely fits a generation that now listens to classic rock radio, still has our old vinyl and regularly values friends, a good dance floor and a cold one.

Rockabilly Swing Honky Tonk Blues !
The Twilight Drifters have been a fixture on the Sacramento rockabilly music scene for nearly 10 years.
2019 started with the release of '10 Lively Melodies', and the nomination for a Sacramento Area Music Award (SAMMIE) in the Rockabilly category. 2018 was also a big year for the Twilight Drifters, coming off the release of their second album ‘Paint and Primer’, leading to the nomination for the international Ameripolitan Award in Memphis, TN, to performing at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Festival, and Deke Dickerson’s Guitar Geek Festival.
The Twilight Drifters are a rockabilly and roots rock ‘n roll trio based in Northern California. Described as an ”American roots music sensation”, the Twilight Drifters draw upon such artists as Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Bill Doggett, Big Joe Turner, Bob Wills and Elvis Presley, channeling sounds of the 1950s into a mix of re-made classic and original songs. Performing danceable tunes spanning genres of rock ‘n roll, honky tonk, western swing, rockabilly and west coast blues, the Twilight Drifters offer a compelling musical experience that entertains, moves, and captivates audiences.
The Twilight Drifters’ fast-spreading reputation and audience appeal led the band to appearances at such regional events as the Midnight Mass Car Show (Sacramento, California), Sacramento Swing Time Car Show and Music Festival (Sacramento, California), Scarlett Fever (San Francisco, California), Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion (Lake Havasu, Arizona), and the Rockabilly Extravaganza (Riverside, California). Over the years, the Twilight Drifters have shared marquees and stages with artists including Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys, The Blasters, Deke Dickerson, Los Straightjackets, Cherry Poppin Daddy’s, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
