The Hi-Jivers pay tribute to the Rock N' Roll and Rhythm & Blues of the '50s and '60s through their raw, wild originals and passionate covers. Their greatest influences include Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Magic Sam, Wynonie Harris, Big Mama Thornton, Johnny Guitar Watson, Little Walter, Chuck Berry and Ike Turner.
Since moving to Nashville in 2014 (Dawna and Austin from Syracuse, NY, and Hank from Seattle, WA) The Hi-Jivers have played extensively in Nashville and beyond, performing at festivals such as Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender, The Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender, and NYS Blues Festival. Fall 2017 brought a deal with indie label Wild Records (LA), and in April 2018 The Hi-Jivers released their first full length album, "Something's Gotta Shake". The band appeared on the cover of Blue Suede News Magazine's Spring 2018 issue, were recently featured in Vintage Rock Magazine, and appeared on Acme Radio Live in November, 2018.
In 2019 the band self-released their EP The Hi-Jivers Play Their Favorites, which was a selection of covers from artists such as Big Mama Thornton, Slim Harpo, and Otis Rush. This coming year will be The Hi-Jivers busiest touring year yet, and they anticipate the release of their sophomore LP in the Summer of 2020.
