Little-known outside of Louisiana (but still quite popular in the region), swamp-pop ruled in the 1950s and '60s as southwest Louisiana's answer to the R&B and rock 'n' roll that came out of New Orleans, Memphis, and Detroit. When that unstoppable sound reached Cajun and zydeco musicians, they caught the bug and played their own versions the only way they knew how - sometimes in French - and traded in their fiddles and accordions for horns and electric guitars.
The musicians comprising the Revelers are founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and the Pine Leaf Boys, unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance. With the Revelers, the musicians have formed a Louisiana supergroup, combining swamp-pop, Cajun, country, blues and zydeco into a powerful blend of roots music that could only come from southwest Louisiana.
