Revel In Dimes

If the delta blues gave birth to yet another slew of gold records why wasn’t anyone dancing?

After each gig as hired guns in too many New York City bands, this is the question that Eric Simons (guitar) and Washington Duke (drums) found themselves asking.  Their answer involved hijacking juke rhythms from Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside and covering their tracks with electrified Charlie Patton riffs.

When Kia Warren saw them play for the first time – two guys covering T. Model Ford at full volume on a Sunday at the Surf Lodge in Montauk – their live set stopped her in her tracks. Amid the grooves, there was grittiness to their music that her foray from Gospel into R&B hadn’t yet given her the opportunity to explore. She convinced them on the spot to let her join on vocals for a few tracks, and Revel In Dimes was born, with multi-instrumentalist, Chris "Premo" Waller (bass) joining shortly after.

Together, Revel in Dimes is a band that knows where it came from, but refuses to follow the same routes as its contemporaries to get where it's going. But like the blues, their music can't be explained so much as it has to be felt!

Advance reservations are strongly encouraged.
