Who is the International Headliner?

Lance Lipinsky 

Influenced by the birth of Rock & Roll era of the 1950’s and 60’s, Wimberley, Texas born Lance Lipinsky preserves the timeless tradition of mid century American roots music in both his songwriting and his live power house, piano stage show antics.

Regularly accompanied by his Chicago-based group The Lovers, Lipinsky’s driving Jerry Lee Lewis piano rhythms and Presley inspired swagger in his own persona has led him to appear on both the David Letterman Show and at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Recently Lance was featured in the HBO series “Vinyl” directed by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese and was the recipient of the 2017 Ameripolitan Award in the “Male Rockabilly” category.


After headlining over 2500 action packed shows for five years at the Apollo Theatre in the TONY award winning Broadway musical “Million Dollar Quartet,” Lipinsky’s debut album “Roll” was recorded in Memphis’ historic Sun Studios using all original, vintage analog equipment.

“What’s good doesn’t die,” is a birthright motto Lipinsky displayed since childhood. With no formal training, his dad’s life long vinyl record collection contributed to a self-taught education on piano and guitar as he was instantly possessed by music before his time.
