Penny and the Flamethrowers is the only band in North Texas fronted by a published 50s/60s style pinup model … Penny Ruffles. She's a little naughty and a whole lot of nice! She and her band, the Flamethrowers, are bringing a rockabilly blowtorch to festivals and venues all over the region. They are developing their own sound. It’s a rocket-fueled bluesy swing American roots rockabilly sound with a nod to Cash and Cline. Penny and the Flamethrowers are a look back to when rock and roll was built on three chords and rebellion! It’s songs most everyone knows, with a swingin’ beat and a bit of a modern edge. If you listen closely, you might even hear an original tune sprinkled in from time to time.
