Reverend JJ & the Casual Sinners
Energy. That's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear 'The Reverend'. The Reverend JJ's kinetic energy has been a staple of the Boston area music scene for the past 10 years. With just his guitar, several harmonicas and a keen eye for details many of us miss, The Reverend always delivers an eclectic mix of insightful originals and welcome cover selections. Nearly every evening (even in the afternoon) you can find The Reverend out spinning his tales at area venues such as The Middle East, Plough & Stars, The Lizard Lounge, The Old Worthen, Sangria's and once upon a time, the dearly departed Evos Arts. He has performed live, numerous times on 91.5 WUML and was the longtime host of the open mic at Evos Arts Institute & Tavern. He now hosts the Tuesday's Singer-Songwriter night at Mickey's Bar & Grill in Lowell, MA. The Reverend is a founding member of the beloved band 'Thunderpants Johnson's Hillbilly Orchestra', playing hundreds of shows throughout the Northeast. Not content with just a single outlet for his music, The Reverend has now put together a stellar back up band to highlight his varied original tunes. Described as a must see acoustic rock act infused with a rare hard-driving harmonica talent, the addition of electric instruments and solid, backing drums brings Reverend JJ and The Casual Sinners into a new genre they can call their own.
