Event

the REVELERS in Winthrop, WA
Wild and wonderful Honky Tonk in South Louisiana with the rich sounds and rhythms of The Revelers.

Swamp-pop, Cajun, Country, Blues and Zydeco - a powerful tonic of roots music straight from southwest Louisiana.

Founded in Lafayette, Louisiana by members of the Red Stick Ramblers and the Pine Leaf Boys, the Revelers are ambassadors of the dance hall tradition from that mythical region of the US, where music is a function within a larger picture of community. The band has been honoring its roots by founding the annual, widely successful South Louisiana Black Pot Festival & Cook-off; a two-day gathering with music, dancing, camping and old-fashioned black pot cook-offs.

"You can dance, you can play your fiddle, or you can cut onions and mince garlic - just get in where you fit in," says guitarist and songwriter Chas Justus. "Each has a role in this social organism that continues to grow and change."

Handpicked by David Simon, the Revelers are the featured band in the 3rd season of HBO's Treme; they were sought out by Anthony Bourdain for the season finale of 'No Reservations'.

The Revelers also play an active part in the Cajun Mardi Gras, an event often associated with New Orleans that takes on a completely different feel in Acadiana. There are no beads, no parades, just a down home country feel in a ritual that stretches back to 15-century France. In the days of Mardi Gras before the coming repentance and fasting of lent, the beast and the devil within are unleashed for one last round of trickery, good times and revelry in which The Revelers are renowned experts.

Lafayette has traditionally been the center of what is called "Acadiana" or "French-speaking Louisiana". In the mid-18th century, the British forced the French to either swear allegiance to the king, return to France, or get on boats and head to the Spanish-controlled land that would be Louisiana. The Acadians retained much of their culture in the language, music and farming, and combined with Germans, Irish, Africans and Spanish to form what is now Cajun.

The Revelers are Daniel Coolik (fiddle, guitar, vocals), Glenn Fields (drums, vocals), Blake Miller (Accordion, fiddle, guitar, vocals), Chas Justus (guitar vocals), Eric Frey (bass, vocals). As individuals, they are each in high demand, having performed, recorded or written with Natalie Merchant, Linda Rondstadt, Preston Frank, Walter Moution, Mamadou Diabate, Cedric Watson and Tim O'Brien.
