Doors: 8:00
MUSIC: 9:30

Not your routine tribute band, the musicians capture the live sound with the same fire and intensity of the early,
original line-up of the ABB creating an unparalleled music experience.

REVIVAL boasts two of the region’s finest touring guitarists, Lefty Williams (Lefty Williams Band, Nothing Simple, Wayside Riders) and Benji Shanks (Captain Soularcat, Last Waltz Ensemble) and features Ron Roper (Tinsley Ellis, early Derek Trucks Band) on keys and vocals, Steve Saunders (Lefty Williams Band, Escape Vehicle) on drums, Preston Holcomb (The Grapes, Wayside Riders) on drums, and Bryan Hall on bass.

This stunning lineup of working musicians are all original artists, songwriters, and band leaders in their own right. Preston is an original founding member of The Grapes who performed with The Black Crowes during their infamous High As The Moon tour. Lefty and Steve are the backbone of the Lefty Williams band, recording and touring their original music across the eastern United States. Benji Shanks, founding member of Captain Soularcat, can be seen playing guitar with many of the South’s premier artists including Warren Haynes, Luther Dickinson, Ike Stubblefield, and Blackberry Smoke. Ron Roper has toured as piano and organ sideman for many of Georgia’s finest, including Tinsley Ellis, a young Derek Trucks, and Col. Bruce Hampton (Ret.) to name a few.

Given their individual schedules and workload, it’s easy to assume that REVIVAL only has the chance to play a handful of shows each year. This makes each show special and allows the chemistry of the band to stay fresh and deliver a powerful show. Staying true to the integrity and authenticity of the music, REVIVAL has a full stage setup including two full-size drum sets, professional guitar rigs, a Hammond/Leslie organ combo, and more, making the band the perfect choice for outdoor festivals, summer concert series, corporate events, college and private functions.

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando

Ange Alex

I owe him a poem:

Here’s a story of a sad clown who one night in February was traveling through O-town. 

He brought a suitcase and a lot of gum, he brought music and videos and tons of fun.

He sang high but mostly he sang low, and he put of one hell of a good show.

He gave a bearded guy a cupcake and danced with a lady, a wolf he would make

There is no doubt he is a boss sir, he even got love from Kevin Costner.

Fans filled the plaza for a night of delight as the 7 foot clown gave us some real insight.

He sang Bowie and Queen and even some Who, also Cash, Lorde and “Let it go” too

Videos played of pets and babies crying, also beautiful artwork and people smiling.

Last night Orlando was anything but mad as we showed much love for a clown that is sad.

Ok, I’d cry too after that poem. Here’s some more info:

If you haven’t been to see a Puddles Pity Party show, you are missing out. 

The show had me smiling and laughing so hard my stomach hurt, but I was also moved so many times by the range of Puddles voice. True entertainment never gets old and I have a feeling he is going to last forever.

I loved the interaction he had with the crowd. He pulled numerous people up to help him on stage and all of them were good sports, one man even singing the entire song, “All by myself” karaoke style! The show was so well thought out and planned but with room for some hilarious improv. Especially at the end when he pulled the 3 fans from the audience dressed like clowns. At the end of them performing together, Puddles suddenly remembers that he is scared of clowns! Genius! 

Hands down one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.

We caught up with Big Mike to ask a few questions.

TBB: Big Mike! It’s been a couple years since we had the pleasure of seeing you perform live. We are so excited to be back in Atlanta and we are ready for this show. What can you tell us about this years event?

Big Mike: Welcome back to Atlanta, Ange! We’re also excited to be in town for another wild and wonderful Holiday Jubilee. We like to honor the tradition that the Jubilee has become and don’t mess too much with the format. You can expect the always magnificent sounds of the 12-piece Kingsized Rock ‘n Roll orchestra performing your favorite holiday classics and the dazzling Dames Aflame dancers providing the glamour. The show is all about holiday nostalgia, whatever that means to you: Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Donnie Hathaway, The Grinch, Rankin Bass, Peanuts, the Dreidel Song? It’s all in there.
