The Twilight Drifters have been a fixture on the Sacramento rockabilly music scene for nearly 10 years.2019 started with the release of '10 Lively Melodies', and the nomination for a Sacramento Area Music Award (SAMMIE) in the Rockabilly category. 2018 was also a big year for the Twilight Drifters, coming off the release of their second album ‘Paint and Primer’, leading to the nomination for the international Ameripolitan Award in Memphis, TN, to performing at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Festival, and Deke Dickerson’s Guitar Geek Festival.
The Twilight Drifters are a rockabilly and roots rock ‘n roll trio based in Northern California. Described as an ”American roots music sensation”, the Twilight Drifters draw upon such artists as Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Bill Doggett, Big Joe Turner, Bob Wills and Elvis Presley, channeling sounds of the 1950s into a mix of re-made classic and original songs. Performing danceable tunes spanning genres of rock ‘n roll, honky tonk, western swing, rockabilly and west coast blues, the Twilight Drifters offer a compelling musical experience that entertains, moves, and captivates audiences.
