402_amberfoxxAmber Foxx started her band in Southern California back in 2002. She was introduced to Tom Alamazar, a local guitar "shredder", and with Amber’s husband Bobby on bass they started laying the foundations for a band. Then at Viva Las Vegas 2003, Ruth Brown was too sick to perform and Amber was included in the Modern Stars Of Rockabilly set.

It was there that Amber meet Shorty Poole. A friendship was struck and soon Shorty was added on Steel Guitar. Chris "Sugarballs" Sprague was included on Drums for some of the songs from "HiFi Party". Amber and Sugarballs kept running into each other out and about. At a fill in show Amber and Sugarballs started singing Harmony together.

They realized that harmony like that is a rare thing so they had to start playing together. In 2008 Tom Almazar stepped down as Guitar Player, and Amber lost a Friend, Guitar Player and Song writer from her band. But she was very lucky to meet Tommy Harkenrider shortly after and he has been a rare person that could fill all those spots.

Amber Foxx Has played the Viva Las Vegas, Greenbay Rockin’ 50’s Fest, and Rockabilly Rave music festivals as well as numerous clubs all over California. They currently have 2 CD’s "Restless and Wild" and HiFi Party". She is also included on the West Coast Ramble DVD Vol. 3 and the "Havin’ A Ball" DVD documenting the Rockabilly Rave from 2008.
