Rockabilly Shakedown at The DH

On Thursday, October 9, 2015 Montreal's rockabilly trio The Hellbound Hepcats made a stop in Windsor at The Dominion House Tavern. The Hellbound Hepcats performing at The Dominion House Tavern in Windsor. I first discovered this band when they were on tour with The Creepshow two or three years ago.
