This band of veteran players was formed in 1998 and featured the legendary Turtle VanDemarr (Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks, Fly-by
Nite Jass Band, Fritz Richmond's Barbecue Orchestra and currently The Freak
Mountain Ramblers) on guitar and vocals; David Reisch (Holy Modal Rounders,
Clamtones, Michael Hurley and also currently The Freak Mountain Ramblers),on
bass and vocals, Spud Siegel (Famous Potatoes, Floating Glass Balls, Fritz Richmond's
Barbeque Orchestra) on electric mandolin and vocals, and the late and beloved Reverend
Billy Hults (Fly-by-Nite Jass Band) on washboard and percussion. They have recently talked another
legendary musician, John Browne (PH Phactor, Melodious Phunk) on washboard,
harmonica, percussion and vocals to join RC & The Phoreheads. John and Billy used to
play music together back in the day and god knows that Billy is jumping for
joy! Billy's description of their music was "rock & roll jazz, with a lot
of blues and rockabilly influence." Everything from the Rolling Stones to Dan
Hicks to Johnny Cash to the Holy Modal Rounders. The music is contagious.
Sheehan is a charismatic songster, an interpreter of songs learned from some of America's greatest folk and blues artists. Her voice slides through old lyrics like clear water through a smooth creek bed, and her performances are memorable for the authentic range of her material: from unaccompanied ballads, to boozy Memphis blues, to old time banjo tunes, to old country songs and eclectic modern folk. She is a musical shape shifter, in one song making the willow weep and in another making the werewolf howl.
