Reverend Beat-Man
Reverend Beat-Man
Swiss vocalist, guitarist, band leader, performer. Voodoo Rhythm Records owner.

Culture creators have eccentric personalities and engaging mindsets, here is your introduction to one of these figures, Reverend Beat Man. His resume crystallizes his status as a lifer in outlier roots/rock music – active international touring musician with his band (The Monsters, Die Zorros) and as a solo one-man band (Lightning Beat Man, Reverend Beat Man) for 30+ years and headman for established imprint, Voodoo Rhythm Records (120 catalog titles). Live, his performance borders on contemporary vaudeville with a demented, storytelling preacher persona, actively engaging with his audiences while serenading (or terrifying) them with dissonant, lo-fi one-man band trash rock. To give you an idea of what that sounds like, take savage sounding garage/punk rock and inject the derivative roots of rock music (i.e. blues, Southern gospel, and folk, jazz). It’s a job that has taken him to faraway lands from his home base in Bern, Switzerland and opens many doors of opportunities for himself, his label, and his associates.
