The Magnetos

The tunes The Magnetos are bringing to their audiences were originally conceived by young, misfit, greasers with loud guitars and a brand new hip style the likes of which had never been seen.

Based in Cedar Rapids, IA Genre: Rockabilly 3-Piece

Band Members:

Joey Bravo (Guitar) Joe "PegLeg" Nelson (Bass) Todd Brown (Drums)

A half century later, any live performances of these hard rockin’ rhythms that laid the foundation for all American music to follow have all but gone silent. Sure, you may find the occasional middle aged acoustic duo performing “the music of their youth” in your local tavern, but it has become virtually impossible to experience those authentic rock n’ roll melodies, played live on stage with that youthful enthusiasm that defined an entire cultural shift in our country. The Magnetos are devoted to meticulously recreating every aspect of those aggressive rock n’ roll shows of the late 1950’s.

So, step into this virtual time machine, and lose yourself in the heart pounding pulse of a genuine rockabilly band. Make no mistake… loud, fast, and out of control… the only way Chuck, Elvis, Buddy, Carl, Jerry, and all the others ever wanted it… this is the real deal.
