The guys are making a real name for themselves playing regularly on a steady circuit of fantastic music loving pubs and clubs. They have made some real friends playing in the likes of The Otters Head in Glenrothes, the friendliest pub in Fife. The great Hillpark Hotel in Rosyth where they really love their Rock ‘n’ Roll. And the amazing Sunday sessions down in the Buccleuch in Dalkeith, where they are always up dancing on the tables by the end of the show.
The Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh last June was a real thrill and they are back again this year on Friday 21st June for two slots. They went down a real storm at Blair Atholl's "Food in the Park Live" several times last year (including the amazing Scout Jamborette in July) and they will back again this year to really "Rock the Marquee" in July for a stripped back acoustic set and then back in August with the full electric show. They are also looking forward to 10thAugust where they are playing at the Perthshire pride festival in the City centre in the afternoon then moving a street down to play the brilliant Twa Tams at night. It’s going to be one hell of a day.
Hailing from a small rural fishing village on the west coast of Scotland (Clydebank). Calum is the voice of Revival Blues, he is the champion of the obscure Blues and Soul classics. Driving the band to not always take the most obvious choices when it comes to selecting a great song. He also is the owner of the worst between song banter you will witness this side of Freuchie.
Our drummer Iain prides himself on being the only member of the group that hits round things! Which he does occasionally in time with the music. His ability to count up to 4 is great for starting songs, the problems generally start when we try to get him to stop.
Or as we call him 'Hugh'!
He is the master of the six string, whether it is the authentic sound of a screaming electric blues solo or the intimate pleasure of an acoustic number. Hugh is your man. And if that wasn't enough he can even restore the French Polish on your Aunty Beril's old side board so it would dazzle Fiona Bruce on a rainy day outside Glamis Castle!
Bass player Jim, comes with recommendations from Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Billy Joel (Elton recommended Nando’s Piri Piri Fries, Stevie is a massive Tony Macaroni fan and Billy recommended getting a real job). Jim is a multi-instrumentalist with a wealth experience, playing not only the bass but also guitar and saxophone as well as some great backing harmonies.
Don't panic the guys aren't likely to remove their kit to "You Can Leave Your Hat On", but they might just play it and won't be held responsible for what happens next.
No, we are talking about the fact they have all the equipment necessary to put on a fantastic event. You don't need to supply anything other than a suitable venue with power (ideally 2 seperate double sockets). They come with a full PA package, backline and lighting.
They are based in and around the Edinburgh area but are happy to travel around central Scotland and even further north to anywhere that likes a party.
A regular evening will be 2 to 3 hours of live music with a couple of 15 minute breaks thrown in to keep the guys fresh and at the top of their game.
They can even play some suitable music through the PA before the gig and during their breaks to keep your patrons and guests happy.
If you are interested in booking 'Revival Blues' for any type of occasion or you would simply like to check their availability, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Some fantastic new shots of the band in action.
Many thanks to Sally Judd & Thomas McRae for these superb shots.
