Deke Dickerson has devoted his long career to keeping America’s roots music alive while interjecting new creativity into genres of music that flourished in decades previous. Dickerson is 52 years old and has been carrying the torch since he was 13, playing in his first rockabilly band in his hometown of Columbia, Missouri. He moved to Los Angeles at the age of 22 and proceeded to found his primary band, Deke Dickerson and the Ecco-Fonics, his newest group, Deke Dickerson and the Whippersnappers, as well as several side projects.
Dickerson has provided rootsy music for a slew of television shows and movie projects, including scoring the music for a Paramount Pictures film starring Johnny Knoxville, Action Point. In 2019 Dickerson won the Ameripolitan Music Award for Musician of the Year! PKM interviewed him afterward about his many contributions to the genre.
Deke will be playing at The West Theatre on Wednesday, August 24th at 7:30pm. Doors will open at 6:30pm
Advanced tickets are $20.
