Voodoo Rhythm Records presents two kings of primitive rock n roll & gospel blues trash! Reverend Beat Man & Delaney Davidson On tour in New Zealand this July only!
They’ll make your back crack, your liver quiver, and your knees freeze. And if you don’t dig that you’ve got a hole in your soul. So let’s give a big warm welcome for The Rev, your beat-man, everybody's blues trash preacher, the fabulous Reverend Beat Man together with the one-man ghost orchestra, 100% Johnson, Delaney Davidson.
Cult figure, gospel trash preacher, and founder of what could be regarded as the most influential record label in garage rock and roll today, all the way from the hills of Switzerland, Reverend Beat Man is finally coming to town!
Founder of the hugely influential Swiss record label Voodoo Rhythm Records, and leader of cult band The Monsters, Reverend Beat Man is regarded one of the most important figures in contemporary garage rock and roll today all across the world, and he’s coming to New Zealand for the first time this July for a nationwide tour of special shows! On a one-man mission from the blues trash church of Switzerland with only a guitar, kick drum, hihat and microphone Reverend Beat Man tells stories of the dead, the living, killing, and lost love, preaching from the church of trash. This is voodoobilly, music to ruin any party, a hurricane of wrong religion! Joining the reverend is special guest one-man disaster ghost orchestra and Voodoo Rhythm artist Delaney Davidson from New Zealand, a troubadour of the open roads, spreading his ghost songs across the world, a truly world class performer of the real life macabre.
