The Reefermen: This dynamic but veteran band has been leaving audiences wanting more for years. Leading the charge is guitarist Bobby East and long time singer James Wallin. The duo has been together for ten plus years.
Bobby played stints with Kid Rock; first as his bassist, and later as his lead guitarist. Bobby has toured the world and earned song writing credits on platinum albums with Kid Rock.
James has always been splendidly versatile. He will go from Black Sabbath to Beatles, and everything in between.
Mike B on bass and Todd Glass on drums round out the most solid rhythm section in the bizz. Both have been in numerous bands over the years.
The Reefermen’s live show includes all originals, with a heavy dose of the classics. They’re known for their blistering Led Zeppelin medley, where they pull off twenty plus zeppelin sample tunes in a row. The live show is not to be reckoned with or outdone.
Their new album was partially recorded at Blackbird studios in Nashville with John Mcbride. They also recorded a live album. The Reefermen are poised to tour the U.S. and abroad, and bring their music to the masses. Make sure you can say you witnessed the band on their way to the top.
The Reefermen have adopted the saying, “Let the music speak for itself”. With this band’s track record, it has been speaking loud and clear.
