    According to Larry Manuel, Penn State is teaching the story of The Saturday Night Jamboree in their music history course. They're calling the Jamboree the Incubator of Southern Rockabilly. (Posted March, 2017)

  • Jerry Mercer RIP, January 7, 2017
        Jerry was born on July 31st 1935 in Oklahoma and his interest in music surfaced at the age of nine years. He played violin, experimented with several other musical instruments and bought his first guitar in 1949. In 1952 he formed the duo Johnny & Jerry and soon after formed his first band, Jerry Mercer & The Roving Cowboys. In March 1956, Jerry meet Narvel Felts who became a regular member of the band by the beginning of July 1956.
          As tribute to Jerry, here are Narvel's own words as written to Dominique "Imperial" ANGLARES: "I'm thanksful Jerry Mercer hired me, which rescued me from chopping and picking cotton by hand in the fields around Powe and Bernie, Missouri. It is ironic that your package come on jan 10th as I was planning to attend Jerry Mercer's funeral the next day. Your words about Radio Rockabillies here mean a lot to me, they would have meant a lot to him."
        We believe the Narvel Felts & Jerry Mercer "Radio Rockabillies" (LP) is no longer available on-line. It was a fantastic set of rockin' tracks, from various radio programmes recorded towards the end of 1956, with Narvel & Jerry sharing the vocal duties.
