Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers To Play At American Music Awards: “If We Never Meet Again” Is Second Single and Video from ‘Rumble’ LP 

Columbia recording group Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers, whose non-stop touring schedule takes them to California this last week of January, are set to perform live on the 16th annual “American Music Awards,” the 3-hour special to be broadcast on the ABC-TV network next Monday night, January 30th, 8-11 p.m. (Eastern and Pacific). 

The Young Rumblers have been touring actively since the release of Rumble last summer, their first album for Columbia, produced by Rick Chertoff. With the overwhelming success of their second single, “If We Never Meet Again” – top 10 Most Active in R + R (Radio and Records) this week – Conwell has added even more followers. 

Upcoming dates in California include The Stand in Redondo Beach (January 25th), Bachanal in San Diego (26), The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano (27), and The Stone in San Francisco (February 1st). In addition, a live taping is scheduled for the Arsenio Hall Show on Friday, February 3rd, with guests Don King and Mike Tyson. 

Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers comprise Tommy Conwell on vocals and guitar, keyboardist Rob Miller, guitarist Christopher Day, bassist Paul Slivka, and drummer Jim Hannum.
