Here’s an excerpt from a review of the Revelers from American Roots UK, a British blog, that says it all: “The band consists of members of the tremendous Louisiana ‘Cajun’ bands, The Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys, so it’s fairly obvious there was always going to be their natural Cajun music embedded in anything the Revelers did, but with so much more added, giving them a strong sense of experimentation even in some ways echoing the popular music of the 1950s. All band members contribute vocals as will be heard from their excellent lead singing and tremendous harmonies, with Daniel Coolik on fiddle and electric guitars, Glenn Fields, drums and vocals, Blake Miller plays accordion, fiddle and acoustic guitar with Chas Justus on electric and acoustic guitars and Eric Frey on bass. Also on this recording are David Egan on piano and Wurlitzer, Jay Miller, scruboard and newly added as a permanent member is Chris Miller on saxophones.”
My sentiments exactly, which is why they’re coming back! This show will be great music and FUN!
