A night of rockabilly is coming to Edinburgh, featuring Warsaw rockabilly aces Burnin’ Hearts and local crew Whiskers both playing live.
Everyone will have an amazing opportunity to take a photo with Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley (box office staff) and buy a lottery ticket for only £1 for an opportunity to grab one of three tattoo vouchers to Mr Gregg Tattoo. Each voucher is worth £100 and the lucky winners will be announced at some point during the gig.
Dress code: pin-up girls and Elvis style.
BURNIN’ HEARTS is a dynamic rockabilly band from Poland. Their repertoire includes many original compositions, as well as covers of such genre icons as Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Carl Perkins, and The Stray Cats.
