Sorry, The Flipside Burners don’t play “Uptown Funk”. No Disco or Rap either. They don’t cater to the current popular craze unless maybe it was inspired by 40’s or 50’s. They do however guarantee to get the dance floor jumpin’ with some cool vintage Rockabilly or swingin’ Jump Blues tunes.
The Flipside Burners are a popular San Diego based band with a fun vintage Rockabilly and Rock & Roll roots vibe that plays danceable, Traditional 50’ Rockabilly, (with a little “grease” added), early Rock &Roll, Neo Rockabilly and will occasionally jump into a 1940’s T-Bone Walker inspired Jump Blues.
The Flipside Burner who pride themselves in fabulous musicianship and song writing, are an extremely popular, busy San Diego based band that has played hundreds of shows all over San Diego county over the last few years. They are currently working on their first CD of original tunes.
The Flipside Burners are influenced by the bands and artists of a better time who shaped Rock & Roll. For all you millennials, this would include: Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, T-Bone Walker, Elvis, The Stray Cats, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, and many others.
The Flipside Burners have played at the Gator by the Bay Festival, Casinos, and many top music venues in San Diego County. Members of the Flipside Burners have previously played alongside of some of the top recording artists in the US and Europe.
The Flipside Burners usually play as a trio: Guitar, Stand Up Bass and Drums but will occasionally have some amazing quest performers play with the band including T-Rex on Bass.
If you are interested in hiring the band for a public event, grand opening, car show, birthday party, music venue, private event, concert, Rockabilly Scentsy party, Rockabilly baby shower, Rockabilly Bunko, even a Rockabilly theme Wedding, we’ll do it.

Rockabilly Definition: A hybrid style of music that kicked off in the mid- fifties. Rock and Country (known as “Hillbilly” Music). Hence the term “Rockabilly". Usually characterized by an uptempo rocking beat with a slapping stand up bass, twanging electric guitar and often early “Elvis” style vocals.
In the mid-late seventies in the UK it was revived by Neo Rockabilly bands, the Stray Cats leading the way, into a music and fashion subculture characterized by a dress code based on 1950s American “Greaser” theme and Hot Rod B-movies.
