The Revelers & the Mountain Park Old Time Band @ Blue Ridge Music Center | Galax | Virginia | United States

The Revelers and the Mountain Park Old Time Band are coming to the Blue Ridge Music Center on Saturday July 21 at 7 p.m.!

The Revelers brings together founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys, two groups unquestionably at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance. The six-member group combines Cajun, country, blues, and zydeco into a powerful tonic of roots music. In 2016, their release, Get Ready, was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Regional Roots Music Album category. As individuals, Blake Miller (accordion), Chas Justus (guitar), Daniel Coolik (fiddle), Glenn Fields (drums), Eric Frey (bass) and The Chris Miller, aka TCM, (saxophone) are in high demand. They have performed and recorded with Natalie Merchant, Linda Ronstadt, Preston Frank, Walter Mouton, Mamadou Diabaté, and Cedric Watson.

The moment the Mountain Park Old Time Band takes the stage, it’s your cue to claim a spot on the dance floor. This group of talented friends got together 10 years ago to have a good time playing music, and you can tell the fun hasn’t ended. The five members are Roger Stamper on fiddle, Dr. Mark Handy on banjo, C.T. Janney on washboard (and a great flatfoot dancer), Johnny Gentry on guitar and dobro, and Nancy Gentry on bass.
