Heavyweight Champion of the World Jon McClure has been leading Reverend & The Makers since 2005 and have released three album. The dance rock group are somewhat of a name in the UK with their 2007 hit debut album, The State Of Things. He was one of the early champions of the Ting Tings, toured with Oasis, recruited ex-Arctic Monkey Andy Nicholson to join the band and released their third album, @Reverend_Makers, last year. Yet, not even a dent on the U.S. market.
It's a new year, horizons are expanded. Enough screwing around, McClure and company have finally booked their first NYC gig at Knitting Factory on March 11. They are on a bill with fellow UK superstar band The Enemy, returning to the States after a bit off the radar. These two and few other imports are part of a Sound City International Music Business Arts Expo, which will be held at the Wythe Hotel. Here's the details:
