The Mighty Revelators got together in 2009 to play quality funky blues. Each member of the band has a wealth of experience from playing in several other, different bands over the years. Whilst each individual has certain influences, their mutual love of the blues and a desire to play tastefully and respectfully "for the song" become evident when they play
All of the band contribute to the songwriting process, and they choose to create new original songs rather than play the standards that we have heard many times before. In fact, the majority of their repertoire is original compositions.Great songs by great players.
Influences are too numerous to mention them all, but you may hear a musical tip of the hat to players such as BB King, Bo Diddley, Ronnie Earl, Johnny Guitar Watson, Steve Cropper, Elmore James, Albert Collins, Roy Buchanan, The MGs, Little Feat, The Meters, The Allmans. The list goes on. The new album, 'Eyes on the Road' is out now, and has impressed Paul Jones already.
