The Revelries began late one night in the Fall of 2016, when lead singer, Beau Bailey, and drummer, John Lewis, decided to get together for a dorm-room jam at LSU. The two quickly realized they shared a passion for performing and rapidly infiltrated the local Baton Rouge music scene. Playing their version of high-energy, U.K. style Pop-Rock and seeing audiences double along the way, it wasn’t long until they sought the assistance of manager Jefferson Manning, who helped build a formal team. They quickly went from playing small, local Baton Rouge dives to bars, private events and venues all across the Southeast. After releasing their first two singles, “Blonde Hair. Blue Eyes” and “Abbot Kinney,” in 2018, guitarist Logan Maggio became a full-fledged member. After releasing the After 7 EP and touring throughout the Southeast in 2019, The Revelries solidified their lineup with the addition of fellow LSU grad and bass player Jack Gonsoulin.
If revelry is defined by lively and noisy festivities, then The Revelries live up to their name and suggest all is about to break loose. Creating guitar-driven rock underscored by a rhythmic tension and driven by agile, honest vocals, their music traverses fun-loving pop-rock, soaring alt-rock and upbeat ballads for a fresh sound influenced by artists such as U2, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Kings of Leon, and John Mayer.
The Revelries were signed to a development deal with EDGEOUT Records in late 2019, with the announcement coming in early 2020. The band, consisting of Beau Bailey (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Logan Maggio (lead guitar/vocals), Jack Gonsoulin (bass guitar) and John Lewis (drums/percussion/vocals) has immediate plans to record new music with the goal of releasing in Summer 2020.
