Formerly Hillbilly Jazz, the title is now Deke Dickerson & the Whippersnappers on a Saturday night.
All seats for Hillbilly Jazz will be honored for this outdoor show in our amazing dinner theater.
Deke Dickerson has devoted his long career to keeping America’s roots music alive while interjecting new creativity into genres of music that flourished in decades previous. He moved to Los Angeles at the age of 22 and proceeded to found his primary band, Deke Dickerson and the Ecco-Fonics, as well as several side projects.
Dickerson has provided rootsy music for a slew of television shows and movie projects, including scoring the music forParamount Pictures film starring Johnny Knoxville, Action Point.
Dickerson has his own signature guitar, manufactured by the Hallmark Guitar Company of Maryland.
Dickerson is currently writing the official biography of guitar legend Merle Travis. He also writes for several guitar magazines and had two books published by Voyageur Press, The Strat in the Attic and The Strat in the Attic 2. Dickerson is well known as a historian of roots music and regularly contributes liner notes to reissue projects for such labels as Capitol, RCA, Bear Family, and Sundazed.
In 2019 Dickerson won the Ameripolitan Music Award for Musician of the Year!
Two of Dickerson’s songs are featured in the newest Disneyland ride, Cars Land, at Disney’s California Adventure theme park.
He formed the Whippersnappers Trio to celebrate the hillbilly western swing of the old masters, using young talent like Zander Griffith and Bert Avalos backing him up. Truly a memorable show!
