Rollin’ With the Good Times

Rollin’ With the Good Times

Did you know that American singer­-songwriter JD McPherson is heading to Theatre Royal, Castlemaine on February 20? It’s true, he is.

With a retro sound entrenched in the goodness of rock and roll, rhythm and blues and rockabilly of the 1950s, McPherson’s childhood musical experiences were a combination of his old man’s influence (Delta blues and jazz) and the discovery of Hendrix, Zeppelin and punk rock.

However, it was a box set of Buddy Holly that changed things. Last year he released the album Let the Good Times Roll. Because we’re a sucker for a sweet story, the film clip to the title track features a married couple that McPherson met while on tour.
