Upper Spencer Gulf and Eyre Peninsula audiences will shake, rattle and roll when the Rockabilly Rocks show comes to town later this year.

The show is bringing the high-octane rhythms of classic rock and roll to Port Pirie, Whyalla and Port Lincoln in November and December for two-hours of retro mega hits.

Rockabilly Rocks includes a cast of multi-award winning 'copy cats' of rock and roll icons such as Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly, with the moves and grooves to rock the stage.

Brody Finlay has idolised Elvis since he was three and has worn his Blue Suede Shoes on stage since the age of five.

Twenty years later and he has crafted an uncanny likeness to the voice and mannerisms of The King, even performing twice in Memphis.

James Nation-Ingle is Bill Haley and has performed in more than 50 musicals with stage credits including lead roles in Buddy! - The Buddy Holly Musical, asBill Haley in Class of 59', Elvis Meets Buddy, NZ's Hot Shoe Shuffle and Southern Opera's Il Trovatore.

Mr Nation-Ingle has toured professionally for almost two decades.

Ezra Lee - Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino - has nailed vintage rock with his untamed interpretations of the wild giants who pioneered explosive rumbling piano techniques.

With eight Rockabilly albums under his belt and a passion for the trailblazers, Mr Lee is sure to delight audiences at the piano.

Melissa McCaig as Brenda Lee unwraps the tender songs from a legend who was at the top of the charts with Sweet Nothings before she was a teenager, and touring internationally with Patsy Cline.

Ms McCaig has travelled as a vocalist for more than two decades, performing at festivals and venues overseas, as well as in Australian musicals.

Scott Cameron - Buddy Holly - has portrayed his hero more than 3000 times as the lead in three separate touring productions of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, Elvis Meets Buddy, The Class of 59, Buddy: The Concert and The Buddy Holly Show.

He has been on stage across the globe and even received the endorsement of Holly's family - and Peggy Sue Gerron, who inspired the 1958 hit Peggy Sue.

The show will be coming to Port Pirie's Northern Festival Centre on Tuesday, November 30, before an appearance at Port Lincoln's Nautilus Arts Centre on Wednesday, December 1, and finally at the Middleback Arts Centre in Whyalla on Thursday, December 2.
