Reverend Horton Heat
In an intense fusion of frantic punk rock with hillbilly roots, Reverend Horton Heat wowed a packed house in Ann Arbor, MI this Wednesday. The Reverend is known by many as the godfather of modern psychobilly, a genre described as rock music with elements of punk rock, rockabilly and rhythm and blues.
RJA Music had the great opportunity to work house sound for the trio consisting of Scott Churilla on drums, Jimbo Wallace on bass, and of course, the Reverend himself, on lead guitar and vocals. The trio was also joined on stage by Unknown Hinson, a comedic country singer who is perhaps best known for his voicing of a certain squid on Cartoon Network's "Squidbillies".
The Reverend's list of fan favorites is extensive to say the least, though his most famous song is without a doubt, "Psychobilly Freakout". The track became an even larger hit after it was featured in one of the largest video game franchises of the generation, Guitar Hero 2.
