This GRAMMY NOMINATED band from Lafayette, Louisiana, reveres the past and is unafraid about dragging it into the future. The Revelers are musicians who aren’t afraid of mixing up accordion, fiddles, saxophones and guitars. Sometimes the greasiest gumbo can also be the best, as anyone within earshot of their music will attest. Their infectious enthusiaim for the music and the culture is an inspiration to all.  If you’ve ever been nagged by the feeling that all Cajun and zydeco music was starting to sound a bit too much like the same old thing, The Revelers will toss that notion back on your ears. This is Louisiana-bred party music sustained by the sonorous signature of its native milieu, but perked up by an injection of contemporary pop, rock and R&B.
Opening act is Victoria's own Cajun band Bijoux du Bayou
