Down & dirty hip-shakin old school Rock & Roll / R&B.
Good and greasy the way it was meant to be played!
Harkening back to the days when frats were cool and the twist was the “it” dance, The Bama Lamas pay homage to the dusties you know and love. Not to be placed in a nice, tidy bucket - it's rock n roll - pure and simple. Encapsulating garage rock, frat rock, with some New Orleans R ‘n’ B, scratchy soul and surf thrown in for good measure, it is wild, visceral party music (simply add beer keg) with The Sonics, Little Richard and the A-Bones on the guest list. The kind of raunch that makes you want to jump right out of your skin and that you can feel deep down in your soul. Started in 1998 by Chris and Sal, and with the new addition of Bama Lady Gabrielle Sutton, these kids get you on the dance floor and keep you there.
