The Riverside Trio first gained popularity in the mid-1980s. When most Rockabilly bands were performing in the more modern 'Neo-Rockabilly' style, the Riverside Trio looked back to the music's roots and played very authentic mid-50's style Rustic Rockabilly and Hillbilly Bop. They were one of the first bands of the period to play as a stripped-down, drumless trio - the way that Rockabilly was originally performed - with the slapped double bass providing the driving percussive rhythm which gave Rockabilly Music its infectious boppin' beat. Indeed, they inspired many bands to follow course, leading to the 'authentic rockabilly' or 'Hepcat' revival of the 1990's.
Although The Riverside Trio play Rockabilly music in its purist form, there's no shortage of their own input. Their music is brimming over with the band's own character - in no way are they a revivalist or copyist band. Most of their own songs are written by guitarist Chris Cummings, who is also responsible for recording The Riverside Trio (and many other bands) and perfectly recreating the original 1950's sound on his vintage equipment.
