Jumpin’ Hot 50’s Rhythm n Blues!
Established within the ‘hotbed’ of the North East music scene in the UK, the Revolutionaires power out jumpin’ hot rhythm & blues in their own indomitable hard hitting style. And there’s better place to appreciate this band than The Rivoli Ballroom, with its unique interior and spacious dance floor where you can strut you stuff in true 50’s style.
Over the last decade The Revolutionaires have established themselves on the UK and European Rockin’ circuit, as well as the Blues scene. They have toured extensively both home and abroad, performing at festivals alongside artistes such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Sting, Tom Jones, Hugh Laurie, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, Walter Trout, Eric Bibb, Albert Lee, Snake Davis and Dave Edmunds.
Think Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Roy Brown. Then mix in some harder and more aggressive influences from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Duke Robillard, Jools Holland and Mike Henderson – now you’re getting close to the sound.
The band has recorded five 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!
So ‘get yourself down’ to the Rivoli on June 16th, ’cause, in the words of the Ronnie Molleen tune…
….” We’ll be rockin’ up a storm tonight! “
Jive DJs, a beginner’s jive class, 2 licenced bars and the amazing interior of the Rivoli add to the enjoyment of the night.
