Rock-A-Billy Record Company (Denver)

Willie Lewis

Following is the current Wikipedia entry for Willie Lewis and his Rock-A-Billy record label: (Visit the Rock-A-Billy web site) – (Other rock-a-billy acts are also listed here)

Willie Lewis (born 1946) is a rockabilly recording artist and founder of The Rock-A-Billy Record Company, a record label based in Denver, Colorado. He started the label in order to release rare and authentic rockabilly recordings, most of which were pressed on colored vinyl between 1982 and 1998. He released music from artists such as Go Cat Go, Ronnie Dawson, Don Rader, Marti Brom, High Noon, Johnny Barber & The Rhythm Razors, Little Roy Williamson & the Denver Ramblers and Kidd Pharaoh.

Lewis recorded his own music under a variety of names, including Willy & the String Poppers, Billy & the Bop Cats, King Cat & the Pharaohs, the Bop-a-Whiles, and most recently Willie & The Rhythm Razors. The Rock-A-Billy Record Company celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2007, and in honor of its birthday Willie released new Silver Anniversary records on colored vinyl once again.

(Sadly, Willie Lewis passed away in October, 2014)
