It’s time to roll-up the sleeves and put on your favorite pair of Levi’s and rockabilly yourself on over to the Cain’s Ballroom. The Reverend Horton Heat is making their way back to Tulsa this Friday night. You do not want to miss this show!
The Reverend Horton Heat is a psychobilly rock band from Dallas Texas; their sound has been self-described as “country-fed punkabilly”. The Rev’s music is a mixture of country, punk, big band, swing, and rockabilly. It will be a very loud and energetic show with lots of humor thrown in. No way are you going to get bored at this show.
The Reverend Horton Heat is the stage name for Jim Heath and the name of his band. Don’t let the good-times band fool you; Heath is a master-mind on guitar. Jimbo Wallace plays a mean upright bass and Paul Simmons is a solid drummer that completes the band. The Rev has an established underground cult following that seems to get bigger each year.
The Rev has also received quite a main-stream welcome with some of their songs being used in commercials, movies and the popular cartoon Johnny Bravo. The Reverend Horton Heat has almost a dozen studio albums out, the latest being “Laughin’ & Cryin’ with the Reverend Horton Heat”, which was released on September 1st, 2009. Band opener is Split Lip Rayfield.
There is no reason to stay home on a Friday night. Start your weekend off right rockin’ out with the Reverend Horton Heat!
