Three Aces & A Joker

Formed in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1959, by Hal Schneider (singer & drummer (Joker)), brothers Joe & Jimmy Blevins (Rhythm & Lead Guitars (Aces)) & Leon Simmons (Bassist (Ace)). Three Aces & A Joker only ever recorded two songs (Sleigh Bell Rock & Booze Party). Although both songs have featured on numerous compilations & have also been covered many times, the band itself only released the two songs on the one 7" single in November 1960, which was limited to just 600 copies when 1st pressed.

Some of the bands who have covered the songs are:
Big Sandy And His Fly-Rite Boys covered 'Booze Party' on their 1994 album Big Sandy Presents The Fly-Rite Boys
The Cramps, whilst never actually recording a studio version of 'Booze Party', they played it as part of their live set in the late 1980's which ended up on some unofficial live albums.
King Rats covered 'Booze Party' on their 1991 debut single Booze Party.
