The Living Deads / Bio

The Living Deads take Do-It-Yourself to a new level. From living full time in their RV, designing and printing their own t-shirts, to booking their own tours, this band takes it all upon themselves and they are still ready for more………

With Randee McKnight on drums/vocals and Symphony Tidwell on upright bass/vocals, they have made a name for themselves across the U.S. and Canada by “Kidnapping” various guitar players after their guitar player quit on them at 3 am as they were leaving town for their tour.

This rockabilly duo set out to turn the tables on the traditional way things are done in a band. Normally, it is the guitar player/singer who makes the calls. The Living Deads would rather throw a burlap sack over the head of tradition and start making demands.

They have kidnapped Danny B. Harvey, of The Head Cat; Mondo Cortez of The Honeybees, Chicago Blue Angels, Fabulous Thunderbirds; Mr. Conrad of Mr. Conrad and The Excellos; James Hunnicutt of the Revolvers; Hank Hays of Ethyl and The Regulars; Sean K Preston; Matt Allen of The Swingin Black Jacks; Steven R. Trent of The FBOMB; Shane Vain of The Midnight Railers; Chuck Hughes of The Hillbilly Hellcats; Casey Miller of The Barnyard Stompers; Kenny Duda of The Razorbacks, Eddie Clendening, Dead Dick Hammer, Lane Krisitan of Lane Kristian and The Jakehead Mob and many more.
The Living Deads has also performed with the Queen of Rockabilly and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Wanda Jackson as her back up band.

There is no telling who they will have next in their burlap sack, so don’t even think about missing a show when they come to your town!
