ZYDECO | The Revelers

by

comment

True to tradition, The Revelers — a Louisiana sextet made up of members from the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys — pepper blues, Swamp-pop, Cajun, and Zydeco throughout its music. A sonorous accordion croons in the forefront while clean guitars dance around cozy melodies. Half the songs adopt the Cajun French language, offering wise words and a few love metaphors you likely haven't heard. With sessions at Seattle's KEXP and write-ups in Paste magazine, The Revelers has reached audiences outside of traditional circles, and it is now in the middle of a 15-date East Coast tour.

The Revelers play Sunday, January 11, at the Harmony House, 58 East Main Street, Webster. 5 p.m. $10-$18. rochesterzydeco.com; revelersband.com.
