Claude Vasori was born in Paris and began playing piano at age seven. He took his stage name from the Caravelle jet and, to honor his Italian-born father, changed the last letter to an "i" to make the name sound Italian. Caravelli released 107 albums beginning in 1959 and many of his songs are played on SiriusXM's Escape channel.

In 1954, after being inspired by hearing Elvis Presley on the radio, 14-year-old Billy Adams formed a band. In 1955, they recorded Rock, Pretty Mama, which was released in 1957 and became a rockabilly staple. Adams recorded more than a hundred songs before quitting music in 1965 and becoming a minister. In 1998, he returned to music, recording a double CD at Sun Records in Memphis. Legacy, released in 2000, included several new songs and remakes of a few of his early rockabilly hits.
