Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - July 16, 2002

Once, the American regional music scene was vibrant and alive. If you travelled, you'd hear a special kind of blues in Chicago, and a totally different variety in Memphis, says Route 66 Rockabilly (www.Route66Rockabilly.com). Listening to the radio driving east from El Paso, you'd find country music in Texas was unlike anything called by the same name in Louisiana. And you'd notice that mountain music in Kentucky was vastly different from country tunes heard in Nashville.

But everything changed with the consolidation of the music industry and American regional music has become, "just one more casualty of the 'bigger is better' mindset of the music industry," says he station.

However, Route66Rockabilly is working hard to change that picture. It says it, "chronicles the recent dramatic rise of rockabilly music with its Internet site devoted to the more than 500 bands worldwide, local music events and regional festivals, the unique clothing styles worn by fans, hot rods, Route 66 nostalgia and retro collectibles."

It adds, "The fact that radio won't play the music and record companies won't sign the artists doesn't seem to dissuade the 18-year olds who are picking up a guitar today. Many rockabilly bands are playing for gas money at non-traditional venues, such as bowling alleys, just to get on stage and entertain.

"Recent rockabilly festivals in Las Vegas, Southern California, Indiana and North Carolina all drew in excess of 10,000 fans who drove for hundreds of miles to see and hear their favorite bands, all of which share one common bond - none of them are played on radio anywhere in America."
