Tex Perkins & The Fat Rubber Band
Tex Perkins & The Fat Rubber Band perform at Bannockburn Railway Hotel on Friday July 8th.
The latest thrilling incarnation of master rock’n’roll storyteller Tex Perkins and the Fat Rubber Band began with a Link Wray record.
Perkins and his respected musician, songwriter, producer and bandmate Matt Walker share a mutual admiration of the American electric guitar innovator, whose iconic power chords in his signature 50s rock’n’roll instrumentals, had a profound influence on the evolution of rock guitar.
The pair have enjoyed countless musical conversations over the decade while hanging out backstage and on the road with Perkins’ award-winning The Man In Black – The Johnny Cash Story, with Walker playing guitar in the Tennessee Four band for the theatrical production.
