Scrapping the Music - Stray Cat Strut

It was during high school in 1982
when I first heard
the dulcet tones of Brian Setzer singing
Stray Cat Strut.
My first experience with rockabilly!

I had the opportunity to see the band play live,
and I must say, back in the day,
his hair and tattoos made me swoon!

(And didya know...he currently resides in Minneapolis?! : .)

I used one of my cards as inspiration for my piece
and the colors of the rainbow!

Isn't this stenciled background just awesome?!

Its time for you to accept the Scrapping the Music challenge
and make something based on the song,
or the promp, which is... 
What song reflects an event in your life?

Come on and play along!!!

Oh, and STM has two new design team members,

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your Stray cat piece Phin! Those rainbow colors with the black and white stripes - awesome! Those cute little cats are just the best! I love the one with the bird on his tail, and the one in the hat! HA!

And no I didn't know that Brian Setzer lives here in Minneapolis! That explains why he showed up unannounced at Lee's Liquor Lounge!
