Voodoo Swing

Voodoo Swing, Nervous Records and Rockhouse Records recording artists is a premiere Rockabilly trio established in 1992. The trio consists of Shorty on lead guitar and vocals, Leeroy drums and yells while Wesley hollers and slaps the doghouse bass.

They have shared the stage with modern legends such as Big Sandy, The Frantic Flattops, The Paladins, Lee Rocker, Three Blue Teardrops, The Reverend Horton Heat, Russell Scott and his Red Hots, the Dave and Deke Combo, and The Hillbilly Hellcats to name a few. Playing a unique rip-it-up style of Rockabilly quickly got Voodoo Swing the attention of Nervous Records in London.

Voodoo Swing's debut album "We're Usin' Code Names!" came out on the Nervous label in 1993. It was followed by their second album, "Well, Okay Then!" released on Holland's Rockhouse Records label. Voodoo Swing's music has also been on several Rockabilly compilations, including "American Rumble," and recently, “The Sounds of Gasoline." The band also provided the soundtrack for the lowrider documentary film "Low and Slow." as well as the feature film “Rockabilly Vampire.” In 1998, Shorty was voted "Best Electric Guitar Player" in Salt Lake's "City Weekly Magazine" reader’s poll. In the early years, the band called Salt Lake City home base.

After a long hiatus, the band regrouped in 2008 and recorded a new album, “Greasers Por Vida”. In 2010 the band released their latest most powerful record, “Refried Voodoo Beans” with Wesley Hinshaw, on the upright bass. His high-octane slap bass playing has become the new standard for that Voodoo Swing sound.

Voodoo Swing now calls Arizona home between tours. You can see them perform all over the Western United States and Europe.
