The Vinyl Stripes will shake, rattle and roll Allen Public Library’s auditorium at a free concert, 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 12, 300 N. Allen Dr.  This eclectic band not only evokes memories of car hops, Coke stands and Rockabilly performers like Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, but their harmonies and arrangements also feature modern beats. 

Their unforgettable tribute to Rock ‘n’ Roll’s king Elvis Presley includes Mystery Train.”  Released by Sun Records in 1955, this song ranked #77 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. 

On guitar and vocals, Steve Curry once worked with 1950’s icon Fabian.  On percussion and vocals, Joe Mansir and Mark Deffebach on bass and vocals. 

Featured on the National Endowment for the Arts American Masterpieces touring program and the Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Roster, Steve has also played with Muddy Waters, Disney Studios and Bravo.
