Mystery Hillbillies

Michelle Belanger fronts the Mystery Hillbillies, applying her powerful voice and dance inspiring guitar skills to a selection of tunes that sit at the intersection of 50s r&b, classic country, and hillbilly boogie and swing (In a word- rockabilly) She combines familiar and classic tunes from Patsy, Hank, and Chuck Berry with surprises from Brenda Lee, Webb Pierce, Rosie Flores and Little Richard- stuff you don't hear anywhere else. She is ably assisted at her shows by some of the best sidemen in North Carolina (and Michigan, for gigs in her old home state). She matches personnel and material to a wide variety of shows, from bluegrass festivals and down home BBQ joints to rockin' dance clubs, swing dances, street fairs, concerts and private parties. [+]
