The Rosendale Cafe becomes a Honky Tonk in South West Louisiana, with the rich sounds and rhythms of “The Revelers”.
These guys are founding members of Cafe favorites The Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys… “unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance”. They’ve joined together on this newest project combing Swamp-pop, Cajun, Country, Blues and Zydeco into a powerful tonic of roots music straight from southwest Louisiana.
As individuals, they are each in high demand, having performed and recorded with Natalie Merchant, Linda Ronstadt, Preston Frank, Walter Mouton, Mamadou Diabate, Dirk Powell, Cedric Watson, and Tim O’Brien… just to name a few. As a group they play with a sense of empathy and depth that can only be fostered after years of making music together.
Simply put, The Revelers are the next Louisiana supergroup.
“I declare henceforth that The Revelers are the ambassadors to carry on the dancehall traditions that could only come from Southwest Louisiana.” –Harry Charles III, Roots Revue.
