    June 23, 2018, 6:00 PM - 10:30 PM @ Downtown Hampton at Queens Way

    Seeing Reverend Horton Heat live is a transformative experience. There's nothing like the primal tribal rock 'n' roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim becomes a slicked-back 1950's rock & roll shaman channeling Screamin' Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the stand-up bass. And then there are the Heatettes: foxy rockabilly chicks dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots slamming the night away. The Downtown Hampton Block Party has become a summer series of massive community get-togethers on Queens Way for partiers and families who enjoy live outdoor music, complete with a children's area, food trucks, drink kiosks and vendors.
