It seems like Carl Schrieber has been on the Chicago rockabilly scene forever. He started
off as the guitar player for HI-FI and the Roadburners (but then again,
didn't everybody). At this time there was another local Chicago rockabilly band called
Daddy Long Legs, that featured Rockin' Billy on guitar, Rick Uppling
on bass and Steve Uppling on drums. At some point the two bands swapped guitar players, with
Rockin' Billy joining HI-FI and Carl joining Rick and Steve to form a new band that they called
The Chasers eventually split with Rick leaving to start the Three Blue Teardrops, and Steve
going on the play for Rockin' Billy and HI-FI before starting American
Dream. Carl started working with a drummer, Kevin ????, calling themselves the Pomade Playboys
and started the search for a bass player that would eventually hook them up with Rod Blaze, and
The DuValls were born.
The DuValls instantly gained a loyal following based on their traditional rockabilly stylings.
They played various shows around the country in support of their debut disc "Introducing The DuValls".
Rod Glaze has now left the band to form his own hillbilly group, the Western Radio Stars. The
new bass player is Brad ????, who has previously played with Rockin' Billy.
