"Being at Rev. John and the Backsldiers Show"

"Being at a Rev. John & The Backsliders show is like being with friends and kinfolk and some of the most talented musicians you'll ever meet all rolled into one big party on the stage. You can't sit still, you can't quit smiling...and you sure can't quit digging the tunes." - Wynona Padgett

Bio

A funky little “blues band”, bred out of an odd series of coincidences, Reverend John & the Backsliders was initially nothing more than a catchy name. Formed by the members of three well-known South Central Kentucky area bands, Rev. John is quickly gaining local notoriety with their unique combination of blues, rock, funk, and traditional American folk music. Comprised of Corey White on vocals, guitar, and keys, Jonathan New on bass, Jason Foster on percussion, and Jordan Shokooh on guitar, the band is dedicated to creating sounds that not only pay homage to their musical predecessors and influences, but that also will forge a path into uncharted musical territory. From Son House to Kurt Cobain, Robert Johnson to Daniel Johnston, these guys deliver a sound that is just familiar enough to catch your ear, and inventive enough to keep you listening.
Reverend John and the Backsliders are currently touring on their new album " The Night Before Sunday " which was recorded live at the Junebugg Festival . The album is receiving regular plays on radio throughout the region and marks the bands' beginnings to present day musically.
