The band was named by two of its founding members after returning from a trip to India, where they befriended a man who drove a yellow rickshaw for a living.
Thursday, September 4: Terry Lee and the Rockaboogie Band wraps up the 2014 JCB NeighborFEST season with a high energy, first class show built around the lightning fast piano pumpin’, rockaboogie playing of London, England’s Terry Lee.
