The Dirty Rain Revelers embody the unified musical collaboration of husband/wife team, Matthew and Melissa DeOrazio, both on guitars and vocals. To date, they’ve recorded three albums, performed at various festivals regionally, toured annually from the Southwest/East Coast/Midwest, built a home recording studio, established their own music publishing company, and performed their own arrangement of the Cole Porter tune, I’ve Got My Eyes on You in the closing scene of NCIS Crescent City Part 1 with Mark Harmon and Scott Bakula. Their song, I've Seen, was featured on NCIS New Orleans (October 11th, 2016), where Matthew performs the song instrumentally on the show with local trumpet player Ian Smith.

Press Quotes:

"Upbeat rhythms, tight guitar licks, and harmonies that float like the bayou mist mixed into a gumbo of blues, roots-rock, folk and Americana...Magnolia reflects and honesty and sincerity for the music they create".  Magnoliareview The Alternate Root magazine

"Melissa DeOrazio’s vocal persona, simultaneously youthful and world-weathered, and spouse Matthew’s pinpoint, Knopfler-esque guitar generate all the incandescence needed to light up a constantly charming, soul soothing mini-set.” Home: Vol. 1 review  Roots Music Report

After eight years under the name Sweet Jones, they felt it was time to hit the refresh button again.  A variety of reasons went into the decision, between internet visibility, changes in the line-up, and the subtle shifting of sounds over time.  In autumn 2016, they changed their name to The Dirty Rain Revelers.
