The Reverend Horton Heat bio:

Formed in 1985, THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT exploded on the scene by playing gigs around their hometown of Dallas, Texas, mixing elements of surf, country, punk, big band and rockabilly to create a genre that took the world by storm. Often imitated, never duplicated, the Rev has continued to garner the support of both the underground rockabilly/ psychobilly scene and mainstream critics. Throughout the band's million plus album selling career, their music has been featured in countless TV shows, movies and commercials, it's impossible to deny the powerful force that is THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT. They continue to electrify audiences time and time again with their incredible stage presence, rock 'n roll charisma and contagious energy. 

Ready to revive a genre that's been watered down for years, THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT have jump started their headlining STEWED, SCREWED and TATTOOED tour that will ignite over fifty-seven cities across the US this Winter and throughout 2013. Lemmy from MOTORHEAD said it best, "Reverend Horton Heat, he's great and plays the music he believes in and nothing else. Go see him or I'll kill you!" Prepare to rock harder than you have ever rocked before! 

Big Sandy bio:

Big Sandy (born Robert Williams) grew up listening to his parents' collection of jump blues records. Inspired by the rockabilly revival of the early '80s, he began to perform with a variety of neo-rockabilly bands in Southern California. Formed as a trio in 1988, the band soon expanded to a lineup featuring Wally Hersom (bass), Lee Jeffriess (steel guitar), Ashley Kingman (guitar), and Bobby Trimble (drums). The group represents an international collaboration, with Kingman and Jeffriess hailing from the U.K. Although they released two albums as Big Sandy & the Fly-Rite Trio, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys' proper debut album, Jumping from 6 to 6, was produced by ex-Blasters guitarist Dave Alvin. While their second album, Swingin' West, released in 1995, focused on the Western swing influences on their sound, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys took a more eclectic approach with their effort Feelin' Kinda Lucky, released in 1997.

The Delta Bombers bio:

The Delta Bombers have smashed stages all over the world for 10 years. Driven by a hybrid of 50’s rock and roll fused with swampy blues, country, and rockabilly. The hard touring band’s haunting but powerful voice Chris Moinichen keeps the sounds fresh and always from a new angle. Andrew Himmler on Guitar, Gregorio Garcia on Bass and Kirk Highberger on Drums sway the dynamic up and down all night long with one mission: make it interesting. The goal of the band has always been to build something people who wear gabardine, denim, or mohawks could enjoy together. Based on their tour and festival history they are doing just that. The Bombers have set foot in over 26 countries and toured every corner of the USA with bands like Reverend Horton Heat, The Blasters and the Legendary Shack Shakers. Supported by four studio albums and non-stop touring of the USA and Europe, what started as a teenage dream has now come to fruition as a worldwide rock and roll expedition. The Delta Bombers continue to strive for the fringed ends of roots music always looking toward the next song and the next show. A show that should be witnessed by anyone who considers themselves a fan of American roots music, the Bombers are playing at a venue near you!
