Red Dirt Revelators / Bio

The Red Dirt Revelators are a dirty blues band, and not in the manner of lyrics or distortion. The dirt is in the grooves, Red Dirt grooves, with lyrics that reveal a story, a truth and sometimes an emotional Revelation. The Red Dirt Revelators are powered by the irresistible "Big Deluxe" dirt engine of Jason Gardner on drums, and Clay Ford on bass. The band gets their supercharger cut from the incredible guitar work of John Fenwick and the voice of Willie Shane Johnston. When Willie starts "revelatin" on harp and that nasty voice lights up, he couldn't hold back the gasoline, even if he wanted to. Listening to the Red Dirt Revelators has been referred to by fans as "going to Blues church with whiskey communion."
