The Revelers is one of Rochester’s premier Americana, roots-rock bands.

Guitarist/vocalist Jeff Sherner and bassist/vocalist Jeff Simpson came out of the cornfields

of Livingston County and have played together for the past 20 years.

With multi-instrumentalist/vocalist David Curry and drummer Don Stauffer,

The Revelers present a sound heavily influenced by Merle Haggard, Steve Earle,

Wilco, John Prine and the Old 97’s, to name a few.  These songs are about hard livin’,

loose women, tears in beers and love gone wrong.

Tuesday, May 31….8:30pm


For years, “home” was a place The Ragbirds rarely visited. The band’s music

— a genre-bending hybrid of indie-pop melodies, global rhythms and songwriting styles

influenced from all over the world — was as broad as their audience, which stretched

from the group’s hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan, to the shores of Osaka, Japan

(where they scored a Number One pop hot with the song “Book of Matches”).

Show by show, in venues ranging from rock clubs and performing arts centers to festivals

encompassing everything from bluegrass to electronica, The Ragbirds developed

a well-deserved reputation as one of the most dynamic, high-spirited live bands in roots music.

“I feel like I’ve stumbled across a band that’s destined to achieve the same level

of cult-greatness as The Innocence Mission, Bruce Cockburn,

Ron Sexsmith,Sufjan Stevens, and yes, even Over the Rhine….

The Ragbirds debut album, Yes Nearby, is a work of astounding

international eclecticism, mixing everything from reggae to Celtic to blues

music along with plenty of world music into a unified, enchanting whole”

-Josh Hurst, Revealarts
