Detroit Cobras

The Detroit Cobras are coming to Seattle in November. They are probably my favorite retro act, combing classic Motown gospel and R&B with 50’s rock in a way that makes it fun for anyone to listen. Rachel Nagy, the Cobras vocalist combines rockabilly attitude and soulful vocals for a sound unlike anything from either genre. Fans of the Motown classics, 50’s rock, modern rockabilly and garage will be equally impressed with the collection of recordings (many of them remakes) available on the Cobras albums. emusic and iTunes are two of the few places carrying their catalog online, although there are two freebies available via their current record label, Rough Trade Records.
