The Hillbilly Cat Show

 

This show tells the story of Elvis Presley. How he got to record for Sun Records in Memphis, how he fused several styles to create what we now call Rockabilly, and the songs which became his first records for Sun Records. Lonnie sings them blending his own energetic style with that of the young Elvis.

 

The Cry! Show

 

Prior to Elvis and Rock'n'Roll, Johnnie Ray was the world's most popular recording and stage star. His show attendances broke all records and some still stand today. His antics on stage included lying on the stage floor making love to a microphone stand, jumping on a piano, shaking and frantically moving around the stage. These were the moves that a young Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis year later put to a Rock'n'Roll beat. His vocal style was also unique so much so they named him, Mr Emotion, The Nabob of Sob and The Cry Guy.

Lonnie take 26 of the great Johnnie Ray songs and with his Leemen and a big band, presents a swing show like no other. He links them together in an exciting story.

 

The Rockabilly Frenzy Show

 

Due to requests for Lonnie to perform dance shows, he created this which presents his best Rock and Rockabilly songs especially for dances. For those who love Lonnie's energy and style, don't ever miss out on one of these.. Many of these songs are not performed in any of his other shows.

 

The Roots of Aussie Rock Show

 

As a tribute to his friends and peers, the first original Aussie Rock'n'Roll stars, Lonnie sings their songs and tells their stories. A truly historic show for those who want to go back and do it again or those who want to know just what the first Rock'n'Roll hits in Australia were.
