Historic Gloryhole Tour of Amherst!

But damn could that girl get down...

One of Sweet Baby Lou’s newest sponsors is one that’s sinfully surprising. When the Amherst Historical Society stated that it wanted to advertise a new tour with us, the Reverends didn’t ask the hard questions. But upon hearing this commercial we were stunned.

Apparently Amherst has many historic gloryholes, enough for a tour, and the newest tour features on the newly unearthed “Emily Dickinson Gloryhole.” So check out this ad and support the Lou as well as Amherst’s proud historic history.

A Journey into the Mind of Man

Sweet Baby Lou: New York City, circa 1972

A lot has been said of ‘Sweet’ Baby Lou Rodham Whittaker Jr. the mysterious and oft misunderstood founder of Sweet Baby Lou & The Reverends of Funk. The facts of his life are often vague and paint a portrait of man whose life defies conventional terms like “gender” and “sobriety.”

Thus it was with great joy that the current Reverends of Funk found this trove of old diary entries by Lou himself. Though the entries are being read by the current reverends, fear not as the contents of these disturbing and often meandering  musings remain unaltered, adding depth to a man whose very being is intertwined with myth and legend.
