Hot Rod Walt & the Psycho DeVilles are a super-charged,
high-energy rockabilly show
singing tunes about hot rod cars,
mean women, and having a good ol’ time.
“Hot Rod Walt” aka Walt Richards, was born in 1966. Lived the first half of his life in the very rural town of Beemerville New Jersey. Moved to North Port Florida in 1989. In 2006,moved to the Atlanta area where the music scene is huge and the southern hospitality is overwhelming. Not only does he play guitar and sing in thePsycho-DeVilles, but works on custom cars and motorcycles. Does hand pinstriping and really just about anything you can imagine on a car or bike. He has a pretty cool car collection that includes a couple 51 mercs and a couple 32 Fords. And a 34 coupe, the famed “Yellow Jacket”…..
And….he has a very cool wife named Sharlene.
Hot Rod Walt and the Psycho DeVilles was formed in 2002. They have released 5 CDs… “Out of the garage and onto the street”, “Psycho Cadillac”, “Supercharger”, “Night Prowler”and “Rockabilly Rodeo”.. This is Hot Rod Walt’s nineth full length Cd overall, having had a few bands in the past as well. He takes pride in recording only original music and has about 200 original songs to his name. And takes pride in playing nothing but Gretsch guitars…….. Nothing else compares.
Hot Rod Walt shares the stage with two talented and loyal musicians.
Burford T Ogletree on the Upright bass and Steve “Burnout” Barnett the hard hittin’ punk rock drummer that never runs out of energy.
