Dread Clampitt @ The Red Bar
There’s a jumpin’ little joint off of Hwy 30-A in the cozy laid back
beach town of Grayton Beach, FL where if the food doesn’t get you the
music will. Same as the chicken and the egg, it’s hard to say who came
first, Dread Clampitt or the Red Bar.
On any given Sunday (or
Monday), the Red Bar is shaking. Literally. You know this because you
can feel it in your feet as you approach the front door while inside
Balder Saunders, Kyle Ogle, Kenny Oliverio and John Reinlie-collectively
known as Dread Clampitt tear through their set leaving the packed house
dancing in their wake.
Part legend, part tradition the magical
combination has become a pilgrimage for people from every corner of the
map and as well as locals alike who all with testify, there is nothing
like a Dread Clampitt show.
When Dread Clampitt is rockin’ the
Red Bar, they draw all kinds of people as the night goes on, rednecks
and hippies are both right at home. Elbow-to-elbow feet moving and heads
bobbing, politicians, boat captains, beach bums, celebrities and
oystermen too. You can be yourself at a Dread show, it doesn’t matter
what you do.
Dread Clampitt cooks up one of a kind homemade
music. It’s a tasty sonic gumbo of influences ranging from bluegrass,
rock & roll, blues, jazz and Louisiana Bayou funk complete with
three part harmonies and pinch of southern humor thrown in for good
