Reverend Horton Heat
Get ready to be converted to the evangelical as the Reverend Horton Heat preach the Gospel of Rock’n’Roll. Experiencing these rockin’ tribal rhythms, that transcend time from the early 1950s way into the future, will transform even the most ******** rockabilly fan. Get ready for the rockin’ High-Octane, Spaghetti Western Wall of Sound that is everyone’s favorite preacher.
With 11 studio albums to date, these rockers from the great state of Texas, have more than put their mark on history: They have slammed into the history of Rock’n’Roll with meteoric force and pumped pure nitro into the old hot-rod engine of the genre. When they take the stage of The Passenger Shed, they will surely deliver what they preach, in the form of pure, brain-melting guitar solos, wild stage antics, and plenty of un-apologizing attitude! Get ready for the sermon of your life!
The Delta Bombers
What do you get if you fuse 1950s Rock’n’Roll with swampy blues, red hot country, and high powered rockabilly? The answer is the highly explosive and by no means safe contraption that has been annihilating stages all over the world for over a decade! This hard touring band has been tearing up crowd after crowd in 26 countries with their take-no-prisoners attitude and super-charged energy, and does not seem to stop for anything or anyone. And they certainly won’t slow down when blowing up The Passenger Shed in Bristol! — Directly from Las Vegas, Nevada, it’s The Delta Bombers!
Their 4 studio albums bear testament to the virtuous musicality of these four rockers, but it’s live on stage that their music really spits flames. From powerful vocal abilities of Chris Moinichen, the scorching guitar riffs of Andrew Himmler, the floor rumbling bass lines of Gregorio Garcia, to the earth shattering drum beats of Micah Malcolm, The Delta Bombers will blow you away with their raw, All-American roots music!
After smashing onto the scene in 2017, the Cheltenham based garage rock ‘n’ roll band’s debut album, “Drop Out Zone”, embodies the many influences of the band, irreverently mashing elements of blues, rock & roll, psychobilly, punk and pop. Released early this year it is already getting rave reviews and extended BBC radio airplay.
