Maddox said, "You've got to have somethin' they can tap their foot, or dance to, or to make 'em feel it. " After World War II the band shifted into higher gear leaning more toward a whimsical honky-tonk feel, with a heavy, manic bottom end - the slap bass of Fred Maddox. "They played hillbilly music but it sounded real hot. They played real loud for that time, too . . . " The Maddoxes were also known for their lively "antics and stuff. " "We always put on a show . . . I mean it just wasn't us up there pickin' and singing. There was something going on all the time. " ". . . the demonstrative Maddoxes, helped release white bodies from traditional motions of decorum. . . more and more younger white artists began to behave on stage like the lively Maddoxes. " Others believe that they were not only at the leading edge, but were one of the first Rockabilly groups, if not the first.
