Gig: The Revolutionairies – Warrington – 12 Sept
Posted on: Thursday, Sep 4, 2008
We have some new visitors to the bluesinthenorthwest.com region on Friday 12 Sept. The Revolutionairies are a sizzling hot 1950s combo and will be making what I believe to be their first visit to our part of the world.
Established within the ‘hotbed’ of the North East music scene, they power out jumpin’ hot rhythm & blues in their own indomitable hard hitting style.
Primarily, they are influenced by 1940’s and 1950’s R&B. In particular, Louis Jordan, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Roy Brown, but have adopted a harder and more aggressive approach, synonymous with modern blues artists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan and Mike Henderson which helps create their own high energy sound.
Over the last five years, The Revolutionaires have established themselves on the UK Rockin’ circuit, as well as breaking onto the Blues scene. Highlights have included supporting Walter Trout at Nottingham Rock City, performing at the Colne Blues Festival, the Summer Jamboree in Senigallia, Italy and playing at the prestigious Rhythm Riot Festival.
They have a full itinerary of work in 2008, both home and abroad, which includes festivals in France, Germany, Spain, Malta and Dubai.
The band has recorded three CDs to date containing a collection of Hot Rockin’ R&B tracks. Each CD captures the ‘rawness’ and sheer energy of the band, who like to give their performances a ‘hard-edged’ vibe!
If you ‘get yourself down’ to a Revs gig, in the words of the Ronnie Molleen tune.
” We’ll be rockin’ up a storm tonight! “
