Louisiana-bred group The Revelers performs as part of its Alaska tour next week at 8 p.m. April 30 at Alice’s Champagne Palace. The band includes Blake Miller, Chas Justus and Daniel Coolik. Bill Bentley of the Morton Report described The Revelers as a band “that reveres the past and is unafraid about dragging it into the future … musicians who aren’t afraid of mixing up accordion, fiddles, saxophones and guitars.”
Doug Loach of Songlines magazine said, “If you’ve ever been nagged by the feeling that all Cajun and zydeco music was starting to sound a bit too much like the same old thing, The Revelers will toss that notion back on your ears. This is Louisiana-bred party music sustained by the sonorous signature of its native milieu, but perked up by an injection of contemporary pop, rock and R&B.”
Tickets are $23 in advance and available at Alice’s Champagne Palace, the Homer Brewery and inticketing.com. The Revelers’ Homer visit is sponsored by Alice’s and the Homer Brewery. For more information and song samples, visit revelersband.com.
