Album Notes
Based in New Orleans, The Dirty Rain Revelers embodies the unified musical collaboration of husband/wife team, Matthew and Melissa DeOrazio, both on guitars and vocals.
The couple met on a gig in Austin in October 2005, a post-Katrina love story set to music. Melissa has family roots in TX and grew up in Austin; Matthew was retreating and recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
They quickly began performing, recording and touring as Melissa on the Rocks. After a year and a half, Melissa and Matthew joined in marriage in 2007, and moved back to New Orleans. As two independent artists from divergent backgrounds, they felt compelled to merge their styles to create a sound more representative and ultimately more rewarding.
After 8 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.

To date, they’ve recorded four 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 11, 2016), where Matthew performed the song instrumentally on the show, with local trumpet player Ian Smith.
They appeared for a third time on NCIS: New Orleans (May 15, 2018) as a full band, performing two original songs. (I've Seen and Pick Out Your Own Cloud; Both songs are featured on the Spark album, performed as a duo.

The latest offering from The DRR, Spark is a collection of songs culled from their live shows. As such the couple decided to record the record as if performing a show. No headphones, click tracks or overdubs were harmed in this process. What you get on Spark is the couple in their natural state.
