Reverend Horton Heat

The Reverend Horton Heat, or “Jim,” as I like to call him, is a true rock ’n’ roller harking back to the good ol’ days of the era. Some call him psychobilly and some say rockabilly or a fusion of both. I say rock ’n’ roll says all it is. And it’s good, if not epic.

The man has been here many times — from the Casbah to Street Scene — and left many people entertained and begging for more. The Reverend loves San Diego, too, being that he frequently hangs out with Harley Davidson of local “scariest band in the world” Deadbolt.

The gospel according to Jim is a blend of many influences, but I see Jerry Lee Lewis to the Big Bopper.

One of my own personal favorite shows was when the band played the grand opening of the Hard Rock Café downtown maybe ten years ago. They blocked off the entire street, trucked in a bunch of sand, and it was a beach party with the Reverend Horton Heat. Good times! Especially the dust up of sand when he played “I Can’t Surf.”
