“California-based "Americana psycho" band Reverend Red will perform at Sol at Santa Fe Brewing. California-based “Americana psycho” band Reverend Red will perform at Sol at Santa Fe Brewing. In six years, Marshall Dymowski has built up his band Reverend Red to a national touring act. And he’s not stopping. “With each tour, the band keeps moving forward,” he says during a phone interview from New Orleans. “We’ve had some band members leave but we continue to push forward and get music made.””

“Reverend Red is a wonderful addition to American music, something that has been a bit lacking recently. Their sound is sure to be influential for other bands because they are so unique. Jack White should take a note from them that while playing from your heart and soul is a big part of it, you just have to have that drive and passion for it as well, which unfortunately for a man who brought this sound back to the fore front of music in America he has greatly been lacking of late. Reverend Red is one band I think everyone should try to catch in the New Year.”

“Rockabilly group Reverend Red packed the Irish Rover with grungy cowboys and dreadlocked hippies alike. The three-piece band, featuring a bright red upright bass and electric banjo, lived up to the hype. Grumbling lyrics and a dirty southern blues sound delighted those in attendance. Sean Russo, an upright bass player himself, took some notes on showmanship from Myk Marquez, who threw and spun his bass around like a belle at a ball.”

"His music is something I never came across. The strange style and lyrics and even the stage presence made this first encounter quite enjoyable. The Reverend knew exactly what he needed to do to keep the crowd going, even myself." "I have no idea how to label his style of music. It's more or less along the lines of country, psychobilly, and rock genres. But the music itself just sounds deep and dark. I couldn't help but be mesmerized by his performance which reminds a lot of Sonic Youth. Fans of all types of music, I recommend checking out this man. I was captivated by him the first time and I think you will be too." "I guarantee and eye opening performance."
