Rockabilly band Matchbox back with a bang!


In 1978 Rockabilly band Matchbox took to the stage in Bristol. The event was a huge success that thrilled the audience and launched a career that saw the band have a worldwide hit with ‘Rockabilly Rebel’. Now the original 1978 line up are set to do it all again…

After that 1978 Bristol event and their hit with ‘Rockabilly Rebel’, Matchbox followed up with hits such as ‘Buzz Buzz A Diddle It’, ‘When You Ask About Love’, ‘Midnight Dynamos’ and ‘Over The Rainbow’. The band sold over 5 Million records in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, and further afield.

Unlike a lot of bands from the 70s and 80s Matchbox still feature their original 1978 line-up, brim-full of excitement and great sounds. Most of all they offer a thrilling evening of true musical entertainment.

Matchbox promise a night full of unforgettable Rockabilly rhythms that are both captivating and exhilarating. ‘Rockin’ Bristol In 2018’ is going to be great night, celebrating the band’s distinctive style and bringing Rockabilly to a new generation. What’s more, the audience can be part of the live recording to be released on film. Tickets available at
