ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Graceland Mafia has been unofficially tagged “Orange County’s Undisputed Kings of Non-Rockabilly.” Still undisputed, they seem to be driven with enough energy to power anything from a hot rod to a fleet of 18-wheelers. Tight rhythms, rapid-fire guitar and a guttural front man reminiscent of Elvis combine for a fuel that burns full-throttle, from the draw of the curtain to the final bow. They write simple songs about simple things; love, life, surfing alien truckers, unsuccessful blackout drinking, and the roads that lead from small towns to big cities. They share them all on their brand-new independent release, “Blacktop.”

The four OC natives have played the House of Blues, Coach House and Galaxy Theatre with the likes of Reverend Horton Heat, Dick Dale, The Blasters, Dramarama, Horrorpops, Billy Zoom, and Lee Rocker, to name a few.

Here's what one reviewer had to say:

This is the second time I have seen Graceland Mafia and I have to say this seemed like a much more fitting venue for them than the previous place. Melvis and the band take the stage, a la The King, to the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey. The band has undergone some wardrobe changes since I last saw them. Jimbo (guitar) and Jon (bass) now sport ties on stage and Melvis has added a cape.

Luckily, though, there were no changes to their high-energy performance. Zambo "The Hitman" drives the band with outstanding drumming and is joined in the very solid rhythm section by Jon. Jimbo is excellent on guitar, and Melvis, well, he's The King.

The Graceland Mafia opened with "Burnin Love" and really set the tone. These guys play with a lot of energy and they sounded great, even better than the previous show I witnessed. The Mafia plowed through a fairly quick set, which included "Demon Lover," "Mr. Injustice" and a couple new songs. Frankie from Frankie's Broken Toy joined Melvis for "All U Got" and the closer, "Stepping Stone."

Is Elvis alive? To be honest, I don't know. But Melvis is alive and well as The King of the Graceland Mafia. Another thing I know for sure is that I would not have minded at all if these guys got to play a few more songs.

Blacktop Rocks!
Blacktop is an upbeat rockin' and rollin' treat that is a must have for your collection. A unique combination between rock and rockabilly, this band is the best of both worlds.

These guys are at their best live....I recommend you check out one of their shows.

Bill

My New Favorite
Recently saw these guys live and what a show. They gave it everything - had to buy the CD. The subject matter is right up my alley and the song structure fits perfect for the feel of each song. Have suggested this release to all my friends.

Can't wait for their next releases!!

Baby Duck

WOW!
Rockin from start to finish. These guys are the real deal. I highly recommend this CD!

Jenn

The Seed
From the moment I popped this baby in my dash, I knew I had to give away my other two copies..... I had to spread this as far and wide in my area as possible! Now I just need these guys to do a lil tour up here!
Love it guys!

DOUGLAS

Explosive and Unique
I just got my copy of Blacktop and I gotta say, it grows on you. I don't know what to call it, probably best not to try. One thing though, it is in your face from beginning to end. The Elvis stuff is great.

BIG RETRO DUCK

AMAZING
this album is ducking amazing!

abe hernandez

Wow!
I still can't get beyond the first song and I am not sharing my cd with my kids which means I may be ordering another copy for them so they will leave me and my copy alone! No kidding... true story.
There is some really good stuff in this cd. If you don't have a copy- get the wallet out and buy it.

can we figure out how to dance while driving?
Blacktop is a must own CD! While listening in the car, I want to dance; while listening at home, I want to go on a road trip!
