Five piece bluegrass band from Louisville whose style ranges from traditional to progressive, with influences ranging from traditional country to roots rock. Along with Bill Monroe and his disciples, Hillbilly Strut draws inspiration from artists such as Sam Bush, Gillian Welch, Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, The Rolling Stones, Jerry Garcia, Emmylou Harris and David Grisman.
Hillbilly Revival was magnificent. We had about 160 people in a church basement for a wedding reception which included...everyone: kids, seniors, all music tastes, people from San Francisco to Boston to Florida. The band learned our "first dance" song and their arrangement is even more beautiful than the original. They worked with us on the timing of that song, on rearranging the reception timeline of events at the last minute due to a wardrobe issue, they allowed a family member to use their sound system to perform a song, and throughout the evening, they played, laughed, joined in, and created a happy, relaxed environment. My only regret is being so busy myself I couldn't fully take in their music, they are fabulous musicians that deserved our full attention, which is tough at a wedding reception. The musicians in our family were particularly thrilled and impressed. I highly recommend Hillbilly Revival and will be making every effort to attend their performances.
This band plays with heart! Each member is amazingly talented!
The sound is rich with true bluegrass sound. You can feel and hear the roots of bluegrass in the music. This little bluegrass band also covers some old rock covered in bluegrass style.
We were lucky to catch them at Zanzabar in Louisville, Ky and hope to catch up with them again. Hillbilly Revival is at the top of our list! They are down to earth and easy to work with.
Response from Hillbilly Revival:
Thank you! We had a blast playing at Zanzabar and we can't wait to return!
My guests and I loved having Hillbilly Revival come play at our family reunion. They kept everyone dancing and foot stomping the whole time. We will definitely call them again for our next get together.
