Skyloft Hosts Horton’s Holiday Hayride featuring the Reverend Horton Heat Dec 8
Skyloft will be hosting Horton’s Holiday Hayride on Sunday, December 8th from 7 to 10 pm.
The Reverend Horton Heat is the name of a Dallas, Texas-based psychobilly band. The group is led by James C. Heath, AKA Reverend Horton Heat. Heath is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. The group originally formed in 1985, playing its first gigs in Dallas’s Deep Ellum neighborhood. Its current members are Jim “Reverend Horton” Heath on guitar and lead vocals, Jimbo Wallace on the upright bass, Arjuna “RJ” Contreras on drums and Matt Jordan Scott on keyboard.
From the High-Octane Spaghetti-Western Wall of Sound in “Big Sky” — to the dark driving frenetic paranoia of “400 Bucks” – to the brain-melting Western Psychedelic Garage purity of “Psychobilly Freakout” — The Rev’s music is the perfect soundtrack to the Drive-In Movie of your life.
Jim Heath & Jimbo Wallace have chewed up more road than the Google Maps drivers. For twenty-five Psychobilly years, they have blazed an indelible, unforgettable, and meteoric trail across the globe with their unique blend of musical virtuosity, legendary showmanship, and mythic imagery.
