rockabilly hall of fame inductee
A L   H E N D R I X  
his music
and a live in the studio interview

"Al Hendrix' Rockabilly music has survived decades of Rock-and-Roll evolution and is still loved today by fans from all over the globe. The singer/songwriter was born on November 12, 1934 in Miami, Florida and his 'southern charm' is in every note he sings.


Inspired by the stars of the 'Grand Ole Opry' at a very young age, Al was destined to be an entertainer. His early work began in 1956 when Al met country legend, Buck Owens, and performed with Buck at the famous 'Blackboard Cafe' in Bakersfield, CA, until 1960. During that time Al was also hired as lead singer for 'Jolly Jody and the Go-Daddies' and recorded "Rhonda Lee” and "Go Daddy Rock" (Tally Label).

Al's recording career included many of his own songs on several different record labels. "I Need You” and "Young and Wild" were released by Liberty Records for nationwide release in 1960. "I Need You" was number one in El Paso, TX for six full weeks; and in the top 20 in San Diego, CA; while Alan Freed played "Young and Wild” on his radio show.
Signing with Pike Records was a turning point for Al, with songs like "Monkey Bite" and "For Sentimental Reasons”, which were released in 1962. "Monkey Bite" was an instant hit, but unfortunately, the song was not widely circulated because the lyrics were thought to be much too sexual. "Fooling Around" and "Jumpin' Johnny" were unissued for quite some time but were released by White Label, in Holland, in 1985.


Al took a break from recording for about 20 years, allowing him to spend time with his loving wife, Laraine (you can hear Laraine's first (and only) back-up singing debut in "Shaving Lotion"). In 2006, Al was back on the circuit and still rockin'! He decided to collaborate with producer/engineer, Jimmy Accardi, and together this dynamic duo cut a new CD, "Rare & Rockin” which brought back some old favorites but also some brand new songs.


Al was inducted into the ROCKABILLY HALL OF FAME in April of 2008. That same year Al and Jimmy Accardi produced another CD, "Rockabilly Lovin." At more recent venues, Al shined at Buck Owens' 'Crystal Palace' on February 14, 2010, rockin' out with Robert Tidwell and The Token Oakies. Then in March of 2010, Al rocked on at the Pre Viva Las Vegas show at the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. The following year, he rocked Vegas again, this time at the Viva Las Vegas (#14) Festival in April 2011, at the Orleans Casino & Hotel. In July 2011, Al jammed with The Six Gun Romeo's Rockabilly band from Vancouver, BC, Canada, at Ethel's Old Corral, in Bakersfield, CA"
