Musical questions

1) Back in the early to mid-1990s, there was a big swing jazz revival in the States, at least in the part of the Midwest where I lived. Does anyone recall a more specific time frame for it than "back in the 90s sometime," and was it a nationwide thing or just us being dorky little farm kids?

2) In the late 80s or early 90s, were there any weird, sort of underground jazz groups who may have been a big draw at clubs without making much of an impression on the recording scene?

3) One of my characters has told me that she's crazy about rockabilly music and what she keeps describing to me as "honky tonk, roadhouse kind of stuff" (whatever that means). I think the closest I've ever come to listening to rockabilly is Credence Clearwater Revival. And, um, I've at least heard the Doors' "Roadhouse Blues" and the Stones' "Honky Tonk Women," if those are at all representative of an actual genre of music. Anyone name me any specific bands that she might be listening to?
