“Break out the bourbon, fire up some BBQ and call the neighbours – this Missouri blues-rock trio’s gravelly vocals and growling sax lines will keep the party going all night long!” (Toronto Sun)
Did you come to see The Dead South at The Pyramids earlier this year? Well if you did then you already know how pretty damn awesome this power trio are…and if you didn’t, then just check out the videos below! We were inundated by requests to try and get these guys back to Portsmouth for you, and we’ve managed to nab a date on their November UK tour, and what’s more it’s going to be in the intimate confines of the Square Tower too, so this is going to be some show!
This will be predominantly a standing show, as opposed to our usual fully seated shows, BUT we will be putting some seats out for those of you that like to sit, but please be aware that the majority will be standing (this is at the request of the band).
“Hard, dirty, rhythm and blues! With elements of blues, country and punk, they put on a great show that leaves us clamouring for more!” (Moshville, UK)
Columbia, Missouri trio The Hooten Hallers are a high-energy blues-rock band known for hard-traveling and wild live shows, with a seemingly endless tour schedule. The myriad of influences in their music incorporates elements of rhythm & blues, rock’n’roll, honky tonk, jazz, soul, and punk with a thematic penchant for the strange and the unexplained. Their live shows take the listener on a seamless ride from unapologetically raucous blues on the lap steel and bass sax, to a sweet three part harmony country ballad, to a romping dance number.
2017’s self-titled album ‘The Hooten Hallers’ on Big Muddy Records, is the culmination of their experiences from a decade of performing and traveling together. They’ve injected the album with the stories and characters they’ve encountered over many years and miles. Produced by Johnny Walker (Soledad Brothers, All Seeing Eyes) and Kristo Baricevic (Big Muddy Records), the Hooten Hallers’ latest effort showcases their evolution as musicians and songwriters. It garnered attention by Vice’s Noisey –“This album rules”; Rock’N’Reel (UK) “This is a band that really understands and exudes the history of rock and roll”; Impose Magazine – “another stunner of a music collection”; New Releases Now – “one of the most dynamic live shows around”; AXS – “This album is sheer madness in the best way”; Ground Sounds – “gritty, groovy, and bluesy”; amongst others.
December 2018 welcomed the release of a new album, ‘Live in Missouri’, recorded at The Blue Note in Columbia, MO earlier in the year. This new recording closely captures the intense energy of The Hooten Hallers in concert, with a combination of improvisation, extended versions of songs, and many fan favourites.
Listeners often detect hints of George Thorogood, Morphine, and Tom Waits, but anyone who has seen The Hooten Hallers live knows that this power trio is unlike anything they’ve experienced before!
“Their ‘hillbilly soul band’ may be around for a while! An eclectic mix of blues, country, punk and just enough horns to bring out the rockabilly!” (New Noise)
John Randall’s demonically-tinged vocals and manic guitar, and Andy Rehm’s screaming falsetto vocals and steady, pounding drum beat keep the band focused on their unique blend of deep blues and country punk. Kellie Everett brings the power with the deep rumble of her baritone and bass saxophones. When The Hooten Hallers come to town, you know it’s gonna be a party!!
