"We've been able to travel all over the world and play shows with music icons in historic venues. We've headlined so many sold out shows in some of the world's most famous venues, " says Jim Heath, founder of the band. "We've appeared on major network TV shows and had our music used in countless films and TV shows. We've played some of the biggest festivals in the world and got to hang around with some of the biggest stars in history. Not too long after some major label A&R lady told us that we were not right for a major label – we got a major label deal. People used to laugh at rockabilly. They don't laugh anymore."
The Reverend Horton Heat hails from Dallas, Texas, and the band's sound is described as "country-fed punkabilly." The band began its journey in 1985 and has never looked back. Well known for its high-energy and often humorous lyrics, the band has gained recognition in the mainstream with via songs in films, television, commercials and video games.
