About The Allnighters

During a time of crazy Karaoke wanna-be superstars. It's hard to find people that actually play live music in a real band setting. The Allnighters are one of those hard working groups and do it well. From Omaha, NE the band brings a fresh blast of old to the new millennium. The bands dedication to the long lost sounds of real rock n' roll music can be heard in every song they play. The Allnighters play both original and cover music in the styles that includes: Rockabilly, 50's, Roots Rock, Surf, Blues and even a little Classic Country all thrown into one house rockin' good time. The bands influences include: Brian Setzer, Jimmy Thackery, Buddy Holly, Wanda Jackson, Carl Perkins, Los Straitjackets and Chris Isaak to name a few. It's easy to see why The Allnighters attract a crowd of all ages and keep dance floors full at a variety of venues and events. Formerly known as Travis & The Flamekats, the band had a great deal of success during the last 3 years that includes: Winner of the Kzum 89.3 FM recording of the year with their self produced CD Zoo Bar Blues in 2004.
