About
Who're the playboys? The band formed in 2009 and changed their name to The Boogie Playboys in 2013. They were the only local act (except Gem Tang) to share the main stage with Franz Fedinand and Chic ft. Nile Rodgers in Clockenflap 2013, been the guest performers in Alex To's concert in Hong Kong Coliseum 2014 and 2015, returned to Clockenflap in 2016, and played in different bars and venues too! They like 50's old rockabilly and also 80's neo rockabilly, and influenced by 70's Hong Kong God of Pop - Sam Hui's Cantonese slang lyrics style, they have set a standard of Hong Kong's contemporary rockabilly!!
The band released the debut album Big Rod in 2012, the new album going to be released in 2017. Guitarists Felix and K13 have become the Gretsch Guitars endorsers of Hong Kong.

The ROCKABILLY band in Hong Kong, play classic tunes and write Cantonese rockabilly music.
