Reese and The Bonus Plan is the solo project of songwriter, guitarist, and
producer, Reese Perkins. The band's blues-rock sound
resonates with hints of pop and funk. Their music is a fusion
of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Dinosaur Jr, accented with creative
guitar licks reminiscent of those by John Frusciante of the
Red Hot Chili Peppers. Although frontman Perkins hails
originally from Southwest Louisiana, he has performed as
lead guitarist on various projects in Austin, Texas since 1994.
Before focusing on his solo career, Reese Perkins performed
as lead guitarist and producer for such artists as Wendy
Colonna, Rebecca Cole, and Michelle Mayfield. He has
shared the stage with a myriad of performers ranging from
popular artists like Marc Broussard, Guy Forsyth, Rachel
Loy, Bob Schneider, Patricia Vonne, and Casey McPherson
to Grammy Award winners like Ray Benson, Shawn Colvin,
and Grammy nominee, Tab Benoit. Reese has performed on
the Austin City Limits television stage, at the Austin City
Limits Festival, and at the South by Southwest Festival.
Reese Perkins is currently performing in Austin, Texas and surrounding regions in his band as well as lead guitarist for Omnicolor Waves. For more information, photos, and the full tour schedule, please visit www.reesemusic.com or www.facebook.com/reese.perkins for details.
