Genre: Beach Music/ Rock/ Shag
Location: Auburn, AL
Bio: Reverend Bubba D. Liverance and the CHP are unconditionally true to the artform of Beach Music. Well what is Beach Music you ask? Well you might think of such artists or songs as Jimmy Buffet or Puff the Magic Dragon... however you would be mistaken. While Jimmy B. and the Parrot head gang rule the gulf coast airwaves of Florida with an iron fist; Bubba D. Liverance and the Cornhole Prophets rein over the Beach Music scene of North and South Carolina, parts of Virginia and Northern Georgia. If you venture out of Shagland, you would be hard pressed to find a person knowledgable on the subject. Beach Music can be best described as heartfelt blue-eyed soul sung to a mid-tempo swingin' beat that gets people shaggin. "If you don't know how to shag get your ass out of Carolina" is Bubba D.'s classic hit off of his first album.
You may find it odd that a Beach Music band be based out of Auburn, AL instead of say Myrtle Beach, Greenville or Spartanburg, SC. But as I have stated before Auburn is the loveliest village on the plains. And aside from being no. 1 and undefeated; and aside from the fact that all we do is win win win no matter what, Auburn is rife with naturally occuring Freakjams. Bubba D. Liverance has a strong attachment to Auburn and the University, as he penned the classic, "Let The Eagle Fly," a tribute to Auburn Tradition and his crowning achievement. Now i could go into a long story about the time Jimmy B. (whist attending Auburn University) initiated a cosmic blood feud with Bubba D. that still rages today. However that legend is best saved for another time.
The Rev. has a full length album entitled "Let My Peoples Dance" as well as a second EP containing chart topping hits such as "Cold Budweiser," "Take Me Back to Shagland," and "Come Back Baby!" A single off of his first album entitled "Didn't We Love?" has been picked up and released by Sony music in the Adult Contemporary category. Bubba D. is poised to take a ride to the top of the Charts so stay tuned and stay informed about Reverend Bubba D. Liverance and his Cornhole Prophets!
