Rockabilly & Modern Love | Friday Nights at the de Young | Golden Gate Park
Live Music: Ron Loney & the Phantom Movers
Singer/guitarist Roy Loney, who was the front man for the Flamin Groovies during that band’s original rockabilly/R&B-inspired incarnation, continued in a similar vein in his solo career, rock’n'rolling with the devotion of a true believer. After leaving the Groovies in 1975, Loney assembled the Phantom Movers and maintained the rootsy spirit he had brought to the band, emphasizing raw, unpretentious American grit immune to the whims of popular taste.
