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. As two independent artists from divergent backgrounds, they felt compelled to merge their styles to create a sound more representative and ultimately more rewarding.

In 2016, After 8 years under the name Sweet Jones, they changed their name to The Dirty Rain Revelers.    

To date, they've recorded four albums, performed at various festivals, toured annually from the Southwest/East Coast/Midwest/Northwest, 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 on the Spark album, released October 25th, 2018.
