Sleepy La Beef has played Johnny D's since the 1970s!! The Rockabilly Legend and the ever charming Linda La Beef are flying up to send us off, and being joined by some kick ass local musicians to make this quite a special night.
From giving me fatherly encouragement when my mom died, to celebrating his 80th Birthday here, this man is as special to this place as they come.
Please do NOT miss this last time Sleepy ever plays Johnny D's!!

For half a century, Sleepy LaBeef has lived his life on stages, in honky-tonks, and on the road. He has released records in six different decades and has had chart success as far back as the sixties and as recently as the year 2000. Sleepy LaBeef has shared bills with practically every great in music history: Elvis Presley, George Jones, Roy Orbison, Wanda Jackson, Carl Perkins, and has been an admitted influence to such a variety of people as Brian Setzer, Bruce Springsteen, and the Beatles. In the 1960s he recorded mostly straight country music. His sixth single for the label, "Every Day," provided LaBeef with his chart debut in 1968, and after moving to Shelby Singleton's Plantation label in 1969, he hit the Top 20 with his version of "Blackland Farmer," Frankie Miller's heartfelt ode to the soil. LaBeef moved to Sun Records in the mid-'70s after Singleton acquired that original institution of rockabilly, and there he reconnected with his rockabilly roots. Singles such as "Thunder Road," "There Ain't Much After Taxes," and "Boogie Woogie Country Girl" saw little chart action but helped form the beginnings of the LaBeef legend as his indefatigable touring exposed audiences to his wildman energy.
He signed to Rounder in 1981 and released It Ain't What You Eat (It's the Way How You Chew It) in the U.S. and in Europe. LaBeef returned to regular recording in the mid-'90s, releasing several more albums on Rounder. Sleepy LaBeef's live sets are truly indescribable and this special night will be filled with performances from legend himself as well as some of our friends!
Roy Sludge is an old timey, truck drivin' singer with a mile wide croon that's as deep as the Grand Canyon and as smooth as a brand new two-lane black top. The trio play Truck Drivin' Country Music that's traditional but still fresh enough to have your New Country lovin', boot skootin' kids raising their beers and singing along.
Juliet and the Lonesome Romeos:
"Heart-hitting - Juliet and the Lonesome Romeos are a group whose new songs sound as if they should be on country or pop radio ... fresh and emotionally charged, as though Juliet were a long- lost sister of Lucinda Williams.”
-Steve Morse, Boston Globe
