The WARREN HOOD BAND and THE REVELERS

Swamp-Pop, Cajun, Country, Blues and Zydeco

WARREN HOOD began playing the fiddle at the age of eleven. He attended Berklee School of Music where he was awarded the school's top honor - The String Achievement Award. He has since gone on to win numerous awards for string virtuosity and has been recognized three times as String Player of the Year in the Austin Chronicle Music Poll.

The son of Austin, TX music legend, Champ Hood (Uncle Walt's Band, Toni Price), HOOD has become an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and singer. He has toured extensively as a member of acclaimed Bay Area band The Waybacks (featured on NPR) who accompanied former Grateful Dead founder Bob Weir and as violinist for world-renowned recording artists, The BoDeans and Texas singer-songwriter Hayes Carll. He has also performed and/or recorded with such noteworthy artists as Lyle Lovett, Joan Osborne, Emmylou Harris, Ben Kweller, Little Feet, Elvis Costello, Susan Tedeschi, Gillian Welch, and Alejandro Escovedo.

The self-titled debut album, "The Warren Hood Band," was brilliantly produced by Charlie Sexton and 9 of the 11 songs were written/co-written by Warren, including the album's single "Alright" and the rockin', soulful "Where Have You Gone."

The cream always rises to the top, and there are young performers out there who will find their audience [such as] Warren Hood, a terrific songwriter and singer. - Lyle Lovett

Hood has style to burn, with a knack for composing songs as ageless as they are pleasing to hear. - The Austin Chronicle

THE REVELERS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers & The Pine Leaf Boys “unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance” have joined together to form Louisiana’s Supergroup: THE REVELERS.

“If you’ve ever been nagged by the feeling that all Cajun and Zydeco music was starting to sound a bit too much like the same old thing, The Revelers will toss that notion back on your ears” with their powerful tonic of roots music (Songlines Magazine). Equally at home on a festival stage, late night dance party, or performing arts hall, the sheer power and raucousness of the band’s sound is tempered only by their unbelievable tightness as a group.

They’re in high demand as individuals, having performed and recorded with T-Bone Burnett, Natalie Merchant, Linda Ronstadt, Preston Frank, Mamadou Diabate, The Duhks, Cedric Watson, & Tim O’Brien to name a few. As a group, they play with a sense of empathy and depth that can only be fostered after years of making music together. They have all appeared on the 2011 season finale of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations and were handpicked by David Simon (producer/creator The Wire) to be featured musicians for the 3rd and 4th seasons of HBO’s Treme.

Whipsmart songwriting, outrageous musical chops...something brand- new & forward thinking which also lives smack-dab in the middle of history & acknowledges its roots... I give this my highest possible recommendation.Music Supervisor, HBO’s Treme

Louisiana-bred party music sustained by the sonorous signature of its native milieu, but perked up by an injection of contemporary pop, rock and R&B. ★★★★ Songlines Magazine

An eastern USA version of Los Lobos with their own style... excellent lead singing & tremendous harmonies... musicianship of the highest order... virtually defines ‘good time music!’AmericanRootsUK.com
