Rebel Angels made their debut at Casino Lethbridge to bring back the spirit of the ’50s for the weekend.

I caught one of their sets on Saturday, Nov. 12.


They played a variety of’50s pop music and a little bit of rock and roll that had  a people showing off their best ’50s dance moves.

I arrived in the middle of “Yakety Yak (Don’t Talk Back) and stayed with the kitschy part of the ’50s with  “Splish Splash.”


Ben Lamb showed of his best ’50s lounge singer voice, crooning a couple famous ’50s ballads like “The Great Pretende.r”


 The band, dressed ’50a style including white t-shirts and greased back hair, included Ben Lamb lead vocals ; Keith lamb guitar/vocals ; Rod Cahoon/bass vocals ; Mitch Rassmesen drums  and Gary Drayton keys/vocals.


They  showed some sweet multi-part vocal harmonies.


 They  got people moving with their version of the Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace” and Sam Cooke’s “Twisting The Night Away” and got toes tapping with “Bee bop a Lula.”


 I left as they were kicking into a more punk version of “I Fought the Law.”
