The Twilight Drifters
Redwood Coast Music Festival 2019 Performing Artist
The Twilight Drifters are a rockabilly and roots rock n roll trio based in Northern California. Described as an ”American roots music sensation”, the Twilight Drifters draw upon such artists as Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Bill Doggett, Big Joe Turner, Bob Wills and Elvis Presley, channeling sounds of the 1950s into a mix of re-made classic and original songs. Performing danceable tunes spanning genres of rock n roll, honky tonk, western swing, rockabilly and west coast blues, the Twilight Drifters offer a compelling musical experience that entertains, moves, and captivates audiences. The band’s second CD, Paint and Primer’ was recorded and produced by Deke Dickerson at Ecco-Fonic Studio.
The Twilight Drifters started in Sacramento, California and have been regular entertainment at Sacramento area venues such as Old Ironsides, Torch Club, and The Shady Lady, and have performed at such regional venues such as the Crest Theater and the Assembly Music Hall. The Twilight Drifters’ fast-spreading reputation and audience appeal led the band to appearances at such regional events as the Midnight Mass Car Show (Sacramento, California), Sacramento Swing Time Car Show and Music Festival (Sacramento, California), Scarlett Fever (San Francisco, California), Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion (Lake Havasu, Arizona), and the Rockabilly Extravaganza (Riverside, California). Most recently, The Twilight Drifters performed at the 19th annual Viva Las Vegas Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada in April 2016. The band performed two showcases and Geoff Miller, Twilight Drifters guitarist and singer, was featured at Deke Dickerson’s Guitar Geek Festival at the Viva Las Vegas Festival.
Over the years, the Twilight Drifters have shared marquees and stages with artists including Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys, The Blasters, Deke Dickerson, Los Straightjackets, Cherry Poppin Daddies, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
