Miami's Ten Best Rockabilly Bands of All Time

There is more to Miami's music scene than meets the eye. But surely, no one thinks, Rockabilly!, when the Magic City is mentioned. What a damn shame, because our city's seen its fair share of quality rockabilly acts.

Showing its Southern roots, Miami was home to a thriving rockabilly scene in the '50s and '60s. There was local talent. There were homegrown record companies. And there were bands arriving from all over America to tear apart our world class hotels. Even the King of Hunch, Hasil Adkins himself, had some of his whacked-out seven-inch platters released by South Florida labels.

Here are Miami's ten best rockabilly acts of all time.
