Johnny and the Jailbirds were formed at the end of 1973 when I moved from Charlton South East London to Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. I had been introduced to Rock 'n' Roll one winters' day in 1969. The gig was at St. Micks Social Club in Kent and the band was Lee Tracy and the Tributes. I then became a member of the "Hound Dog" club Woodgreen and was found on most Saturday nights there and at the "Tunnel" pub in Greenwich. I saw all the bands at that time, Flying Saucers, Crazy Cavan, Freddy Fingers Lee, The Wild Angels, but the one that did it for me was the incredible Shakin' Stevens and the Sunsets. He introduced this novice rocker to Johnny Burnette. I don't remember any other band performing those songs and you knew that was it. I now wanted to sing. So after moving to Wellingborough I placed an advert in the local newspaper to recruit musicians interested in forming a Rock 'n' Roll Band. The response was immediate and after a few rehearsals and the firstgig in a local village club Johnny and the Jailbirds were born.
It wasn't long before the band had gained a huge following on the Rock 'n' Roll circuit in the UK and abroad . Now were back with a brand new hot rockin' line up & ready to hit the road again. THE NEW JOHNNY AND THE JAILBIRDS.
