See how millions of die-hard fans come together to celebrate the music, the style and the fashion of one of the most iconic eras in American history.  

New York, NY (August 23rd, 2016) – Dive into the world filled with rock and roll music, pin up girls, hot rods and vintage fashion in the documentary IT’S A ROCKABILLY WORLD, arriving on Digital HD and DVD from Virgil Films October 4th. Directed by the award winning Brent Huff (Chasing Beauty, Behind the Orange Curtain), the film focuses on the vibrant scene known as “rockabilly” and the people who follow this subculture religiously.

The term dates back the mid-1950s, where it was coined to describe the music – rock-n-roll played by hillbillies – from performers like Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. It’s revival in the 1980s captured the hearts of millions of people as it grew into a complete lifestyle – incorporating cars, clothing, hairstyles and tattoos that all venerate that mid-century decade. IT’S A ROCKABILLY WORLD details it’s humble beginnings to the global sensation it is today, not only in the United States but overseas in Europe, South Africa and even Japan. The colorful cast brings you right onto the rockabilly scene—describing how and why they fall in love with this cultural phenomenon. People ranging from Elvis impersonators to actor/musician Drake Bell to everyday working class citizens show you why they wear, pierce, and tattoo themselves so distinctively while driving lowboy Deuce coupés and T Bucket hot rods. This is the type of scene where people from all walks of life give it their all and are not ashamed to do so. IT’S A ROCKABILLY WORLD pulls back the curtain on this outlandish and vibrant lifestyle and shows the good, the bad, and the HIP!

IT’S A ROCKABILLY WORLD will be available to own for digital download and streaming on all digital retailers as well as on DVD October 4th, 2016
