Rhythms Welcomes Grammy Award Nominee, Reverend

"You know I hate these cookie cutter bios. I know they are necessary but you are only as good as last night's gig. I really haven't done anything special except open and meet B.B. King and have the honor of backing up Madison Slim for 10yrs, playing with great guys like R.J. Mischo, Cadillac Pete Rahn, Benny Rickun, PT Pedersen SC, Bobby Lee Sellers Jr, Big Al Groth, Bryan Lee, Billy Flynn, Pat Hayes and all the guys in my band present and past. Guys like Rick Holmes, Chico Johnson, Devil Roberts, Diesel, Evil Evans, Craig Panosh, Kern, Barefoot Jimmy, Frankie Panosh, Chuck Might, Mickey Larson, Benny Rickun many more. I get to go to festivals and see my heros, friends like Perry Weber, Jim Liban, Billy Flynn and get paid for it. That is cool. I've been blessed with great love, good friends and family and the ability to earn a living playing guitar and standing on chairs and tables. If I can put a smile on your face and get you to shake your rear end I've done a good job." - Reverend Raven Now here is the standard one: Born and raised on south side of Chicago, the Reverend has been playing the blues since 1971 when he first saw Freddy King play at the Kinetic Theatre in Chicago.

Kurt Schindler Live On Stage!

In 2002 Kurt began performing as a soloist on the island of St. Croix playing originals and covers along with his new passion for flamenco guitar. Missing playing in a group and not finding the right members he started down the path of looping, which is technology that allows you to record your music (instruments) live and layer them to sound like a band. This first started off as just guitar layered underneath a solo and vocals but grew to include various instruments such as flute, bass, percussion, beat boxing (mouth percussion). You can expect to have a great time at his shows with a multitude of people from all ages and ethnicities dancing and having a blast! Don’t miss this experience and the virtuoso. Kurt currently plays in the US Virgin Islands and goes on a summer tour in the United States every year.
