Music Scene: Reverend Red, other area shows
Along with a guitar, bass, drum, banjo and violin, audiences at a Reverend Red show are likely to see the band play some odd ball instrument, which was probably homemade.
Electric or acoustic, genuine or homemade, Reverend Red and guests Duane Mark and the Get Down Bandits will play a variety of instruments at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20, at Sabrosa, 122 S. Fifth St.
In the midst of its Outlived the West Tour and visiting venues in Colorado, Utah and California, Reverend Red is based in Lancaster, Calif., in the Mojave Desert.
“The people who make up the band Reverend Red are not only musicians but performers that create a musical experience and they demand your attention and participation. They bring theatrics to the stage and are not afraid to put themselves out there for the audience,” says the band’s Facebook bio.
The significantly different backgrounds of each of the band members commingles to produce a vast array of sounds — rockabilly, country, punk, roots, rock, and Americana, to name a few.
The band has performed together at festivals and venues since 2009.
