The Last Revel
From the budding music scene of the Upper Midwest comes the cutting edge Front Porch Americana soundscapes of The Last Revel. This powerfully talented trio of multi-instrumentalists from Minneapolis, Minnesota naturally blends the genres of Folk, Rockabilly, Old Time String-Band and Rock to create a sound that is as equally original as it is timeless. The Last Revel utilizes their multi-instrumental abilities to bring the acoustic guitar, upright bass, fiddle, 5-string banjo, harmonica, kick drum and three-part vocal harmonies together to consistently deliver “Bombastic live performances,” as well as delicate and haunting folk ballads. With their second, self titled, album released in May of 2015, The Last Revel further demonstrates their ability to create rich and delicately textured recorded material with a modern “tip of the hat” to the storied history of American folk music.
The Last Revel’s wide range appeal in providing support for a diverse array of bands such as Brandi Carlile, Elephant Revival, Jeff Austin, Fruition, Rabbit Wilde and more. They also established their presence at festivals like Blue Ox Festival, Summerset, and Big Wu Family Reunion among others. The greatest honor came during their appearance at FreshGrass 2016 where they took 1st place in the band competition, winning a cash prize, a main stage performance slot at FreshGrass 2017, and a recording session with Compass Records’ super-producer Alison Brown.
