Reverend Horton Heat is the headliner performer for a concert Sunday at the Event Center on the Beach in Gold Beach.
Robert “Big Sandy” Williams, who played in Azalea Park in July, returns to Curry County to perform in concert Sunday at the Event Center on the Beach.

The Gold Beach Concert Association presents The Reverend Horton Heat at 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 21.

Jim Heath, also known as The Reverend Horton Heat, appears with special guests The Voodoo Glow Skulls and Big Sandy in Docia Sweet Hall at the Event Center on the Beach, 29392 Ellensburg Ave., Gold Beach.

Heath’s psychobilly trio has been performing since 1985. Heath is a singer, songwriter and guitarist and, true to his evangelical calling, has been called a revelator because of his ability to reveal and reinterpret the country-blues-rock roots of American music.

The Gold Beach Concert Association presents The Reverend Horton Heat at 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 21.

Jim Heath, also known as The Reverend Horton Heat, appears with special guests The Voodoo Glow Skulls and Big Sandy in Docia Sweet Hall at the Event Center on the Beach, 29392 Ellensburg Ave., Gold Beach.

Heath’s psychobilly trio has been performing since 1985. Heath is a singer, songwriter and guitarist and, true to his evangelical calling, has been called a revelator because of his ability to reveal and reinterpret the country-blues-rock roots of American music.

Heath comes on stage as a slicked-back 1950s rock ’n’ roller channeling everything from Screamin’ Jay Hawkins to Buddy Holly. Accompanying him are the “Heatettes” dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots.

The Reverend Horton Heat has produced 11 albums, the most recent titled “Rev.”

The Voodoo Glow Skulls has been performing for 24 years, has produced nine albums, the most recent titled “Break the Spell,” and has performed in Brazil and Japan as well as touring the U.S.

The band has meshed hardcore punk, traditional ska and Mexican music to create the prototype for its West Coast ska-core sound.

Brookings music fans will remember Big Sandy from the Summer Concerts in the Park performance in July with His Fly-Rite Boys.

Robert “Big Sandy” Williams is often tagged as “retro,” harking back to the days of Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, Duane Eddy and Chet Atkins.

Admission is $25 in advance. Tickets are available in Brookings at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies, in Gold Beach at Gold Beach Books, Interior Coverups and Rogue Resale, and in Nesika Beach at Nesika Market. Tickets at the door are $30.
