Detroit rockabilly band the Horse Cave Trio will play at Callahan’s Music Hall on Friday, November 2, to celebrate their ten years together.
The Horse Cave Trio formed late in 2002 with a vision to create roots music with a Detroit edge - a straight ahead, high energy roots rock trio that would perform and record original music and remold classic tunes into something new and exciting. DeVore was looking to form a band that would fan his already blazing rockabilly flames. He found the perfect partner in guitarist Lou Simon, a veteran of the Detroit music scene. Rounding out the Trio is brother-in-arms Tony Bizon on drums, a man who doesn’t so much put the hammer down as create rhythmic havoc with it. Put them together, and the trio creates what it likes to call Hillbilly Rock 'n' Roll, or Red Hot Rockabilly. Hi-Octane Roadhouse Blues, or Outlaw Country Rock 'n' Roll. Take your pick.
The band, already an underground hit with Motor City concert-goers, has seen their profile rise to the next level since signing with Tino Gross (the Howling Diablos) for new album Hart County. Ten years in, and the Horse Cave Trio is showing no signs of slowing down.
The show at Callahan’s should be a cracker.
