Dex Romweber Duo bring rockabilly to Duke Gardens

The Dex Romweber Duo came, saw and conquered the stage at the Duke Gardens on Wednesday night. The brother and sister duo, Dexter and Sara, tore through an hour-long set of raucous rockabilly and 50's inspired rock.

The set included a number of songs from the group's latest album, Ruins of Berlin, including the title track, "Picture," "Lookout," "Love Letters" and "Cigarette Party." Dexter moved around the stage, wailing on his old Silvertone guitar, soaked in reverb. I haven't heard rockabilly sound that good in a long time.

Our next ticket giveaway will go up next Friday (July 10) for The Love Language's show at Duke Gardens on Wednesday, July 15. That will be a show you won't want to miss.
