Sleepy LaBeef is one of the last surviving Sun Record Company artists, along with Jerry Lee Lewis. For half a century, Sleepy LaBeef has lived his life on stages, in honky-tonks, and on the road. He has released records in six different decades and has had chart success as far back as the 60’s and as recently as the year 2000.


Sleepy LaBeef has shared bills with practically every great in music history: Elvis Presley, George Jones, Roy Orbison, Wanda Jackson, Carl Perkins, has numbered in his band over five hundred people (including the likes of Doug Kershaw, Kenny Rogers, Glen Campbell, D.J. Fontana, and Grady Martin), and has been an admitted influence to such a variety of people as Brian Setzer, Bruce Springsteen, and the Beatles. Sleepy LaBeef’s live sets are truly indescribable. He does nothing less than give up his body to the spirit of the music and testifying.


This year marks the 40th anniversary of Sleepy and Dave Keyes’ first gigs in Honky Tonks of Northeast USA to arenas in Spain – where Sleepy had a Gold Record of “Boogie Woogie Country Girl” in the 70’s.

A legend coming back, Sleepy was a particular favorite of Norman Hewitt, already here for Blues to Bop in 1997, 1998 and 2007.
