Montgomery Bucks Music Award Winning Band 2010
“Best Punk Live Band” and “Best Original Band”
The Punkabillys deliver a unique sound that is a fusion of 80’s Punk Rock, 1950’s Rockabilly and Irish/Celtic music. They are a 6 piece band that includes bag pipes and the banjo. This distinct combination of genres results in a sound that just has to be heard to be believed.
The Punkabillys started out as two guys playing with themselves (instruments, in case anyone should be confused). Originally known as Burning Eyebrow, they got their start playing acoustic style at private parties and bonfires. The band expanded to four members in July of 2007, bringing their electric and harder feel to the band. Then, in December 2007, they changed their name to The Punkabillys. Their new style of original music reflected songs about local life and growing up in Pennsylvania or Pennsyltucky, as the case may be. In late 2009, they added a fifth member to play banjo and complete their rockabilly sound. In early 2010, they expanded their punk style by adding bagpipes and a tin whistle to create a celtic punk sound that is like no other.
They are...part PUNK...part BILLY!
