Live Music at Revs

Amplifyin’ and testifyin’ for your SOUL. In the alley, at Revolution Cafe and Bar.

Kerosene Pipedreams: Singing songs to make you cry and the occasional “train-chugga” river dance, Kerosene Pipedreams is a low-down folk singer-songwriter with punk rock influences. Stories about life and death, love and heart-ache, addiction and redemption.

Brightwire: Brightwire is an Americana band born from a household of musicians and hailing from southeast Texas. Combining elements of folk, rock, country, punk and whatever else they happen to get interested in, they weave tales of lives lived in our world today. For them, music is about inclusion and letting others know they are not alone in their struggles.

Samuel Barker (Vocals/Guitar) has come up through the Houston Americana/Alt Country scene with bands like The Wayward Sons, The Dragliners and his own solo endeavors. While Kimberly Barker (Vocals/Organ) spent her youth as a member of various choirs, honing her vocal chops.

After helping with the recording of Samuel’s solo album, These Lonesome Nights, Kimberly hit the road to help promote the release. A couple of years later, the duo was married and writing songs together. The product of these adventures is A Place to Call Home.

With the recent addition of Michael Helfenstein (formerly of The Grizzly Band) as a full-time member, the songs receive the same treatment live that they received on album.

Doc Mojoe: Good time rock and roll with an Irish twist, local favorites Doc Mojoe bring the big show in the Bryan/College Station area.

Grifters & Shills: His was hard rock and heavy metal. Hers was the classic sound of the East Texas piney woods. Theirs was a fiery collision, bearing forth a sound that was at once novel and instantly familiar–nodding to roots seated deep in high lonesome harmonies and back porch blues, while peering out at a scorched path bound by modern assertions and contemporary commentary.

Behind Grifters & Shills is John and Rebecca Stoll, native Texans who met in a classic rock/blues jam band in 2008. Between them they discovered a magnetic chemistry that manifested not only in music, but in all aspects of their relationship. When they began playing as a two-piece band, they found a unique voice in the combination of Rebecca’s East Texas vocal stylings and John’s formidable guitar work. They immediately began writing their own songs, while testing the waters of vocal harmonies and adding an array of instrumentation to their arsenal. A typical show will feature a delightful range of electric instruments, including John’s archtop guitar, Rebecca’s bass, a driving stomp board, a couple of cigar box guitars, a handful of harmonicas, and an occasional kazoo.

They call it high lonesome heavy metal, and together, this two-person, dozen-instrument act provides a show full of sound a fury, punctuated with raw, quiet vulnerability, forging new trails and shining new light on familiar ground.
