California's Coker Family is best remembered for two rockabilly classics of the 1950s: patriarch Alvis Coker's Don't Go Baby (Don't Go) and his daughter Alvadean's We're Gonna Bop. Both songs were written by Alvis' wife, Geraldine, who played bass in the family band. With son Sandy on guitar and fiddle, daughter Linda on piano, and youngest daughter Carolyn on vocals and percussion, the six members of the Coker Family were a popular staple of the rockabilly-infused West Coast country scene of the mid-1950s. Alvadean and Sandy were regular performers on the influential 'Town Hall Party,' and the Cokers – in various incarnations – recorded a total of 30 songs for both the Abbott label in Los Angeles and the Decca label in Nashville.
