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 so 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 trio 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.

Armchar Boogie:
Armchair Boogie formed in the winter of 2014 as a banjo and guitar duo. After playing a handful of shows as a romp-stomp’in toe-tapp’in duo, Augie Dougherty (banjo) and Ben Majeska (guitar) recruited a well versed rhythm section to hold down the upbeat tempos and provide an extra oomph that’ll bring even saddest uncle to a dance floor. Drums and bass were destined to join the Boogie. This happened in October 2015; and In the few short months since then the Boogie boys have been busy performing, booking, and have just begun recording their first album.

Tha Gambol:
It was in a back corner of a student union kitchen, pushing racks of grimy plates coated with dried Wisconsin cheese once draped over pizza through an industrial sized dish washer, that two UW-Madison students started talking music. This conversation led to a synthesis of sounds from violin rooted in classical traditions and folk guitar.

Word spread like wildfire through that student union kitchen and social networks. It did not take long for the three remaining members to infuse their musical roots of blues, pop, and rock into the sound. This quintet pulled from a multitude of musical backgrounds, aiming to create one thing - authentic, quality soundwaves. Thus, The Gambol was born.
