Biography: The Fabulous Hubcaps
The HUBCAPS consist of seven lead vocalists who are proficient on a number of instruments.

This instrumentation, blended with their rich vocals produces tremendous sound qualities and reinforces their reputation for capturing the authentic "feel" and sound reproduction of the original recordings. Some of the artists that the Hubcaps honor are: Elvis, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, The Coasters, The Platters, The Everly Brothers, Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson, Connie Francis, The Beach Boys, The Shirelles, The Righteous Brothers, Sam & Dave, Sonny & Cher, James Brown, Otis Redding, Tina Turner, John Fogerty, Janis Joplin, and many other stars.
