Memphis Rockabilly Band

An East Coast rockabilly favorite, Boston's Memphis Rockabilly Band has played High on the Hog six (count 'em, 6!) times, starting in 1980. Recently reformed (as in got back together again), the band features originators Jeff Spencer and Bill Coover along with Paul Justice, Bob Paluccio, and Tom Jesser.

Good Humor Band
Good Humor Band

The Good Humor Band has played High on the Hog more times than god, who actually has never played there. The first time, we think, was at HOTH 5 in 1981. Back together for a special reunion gig, Mike McAdam, Greg Wetzel, Drake Leonard, Joe McGlohon, and Dave Eggleston will be joined by those ever popular special guests.
