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.
