Jump into June with a little bit of rock, a little bit of soul, even folk, jazz and more in live music entertainment.
Always glad to welcome newcomers, here’s a chance to check out the band Revelry Soul live Friday at The Handle Bar Tavern in Catawba. With a range that runs from classic rock, indie/garage rock to southern rock ‘n’ blues, Revelry Soul tout a repertoire that includes “everything from Zeppelin to Kings of Leon” and beyond.
Based in Rock Hill, the RS lineup features Josh Hamilton, vocals/acoustic guitar; Mitch Kelly, guitar; Jake Bennett, guitar; Andrew Shay, bass and Gary Baker Jr., drums. Somewhat new, the band admits they are ‘still growing’ but reviews have been positive, especially considering this quote from Handle Bar owner Jeff Towery, saying not only are they “back by popular demand” but that Revelry Soul “blew everyone away with their talent” in their recent appearance. Rocking with 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s favorites as well as a bit of blues too RS has big plans to “become something very special for their audiences.”
Look forward to rockin’ fun for all with Revelry Soul live Friday at The Handle Bar Tavern, 2610 South Anderson Road (U.S. 21) in Catawba. Also, scheduled at The Handle Bar this weekend is the band Just 4 Fun live for Biker Sunday. For more show info call 327-0074.
Leap ahead to Thursday for an evening of live music from Time Sawyer, live for the Summer Concert Series at Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill.
Time Sawyer claims a duality of theme putting their music partly in the past while still headed into the future thanks to their Americana grassroots feel, heart-felt lyrics, and eclectic high energy show. This is alt-country territory with a folk-rock feel thanks to influences that include Jason Isbell, Seth & Scott Avett as well as Ryan Adams.
From Charlotte, Time Sawyer has found themselves in the popular company sharing the stage with Langhorne Slim, Steep Canyon Rangers, Holy Ghost Tent Revival and more at an assortment of high profile events including Merlefest, Floydfest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion and others.
The band features Sam Tayloe, guitar/lead vocals/harmonica; Houston Norris, banjo/vocals and Bob Barone, pedal steel/lap steel/guitar.
