Beat Root Revival

May 14, 2022

BEAT ROOT REVIVAL is a multi-instrumentalist roots duo, combining elements of Folk, Blues, Country, and Rock n Roll to create a melodic sound, made up of powerhouse harmonic vocalists Andrea Magee and Ben Jones.

Originally from England and Ireland, Ben Jones and Andrea Magee came to the USA 4 years ago like their ancestors before them, looking for a new life and to share their music far and wide. With just a guitar, a Bodhran and a hunger in their harmonies and songs, Austin, Texas became their adopted home and they have developed an ever-growing fan base gigging regularly while writing prolifically. The band’s CD sales are higher than any other support act we’ve had at our label in years and they just recorded three brand new songs with legendary producer Paul Leary (Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Ballyhoo!, Meat Puppets, Butthole Surfers), which includes a great rendition of Thunderclap Neman’s, Something In The Air.

All three current members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Don Marovich, have intrinsic links to the original group: Mike is the “adopted son” of founding member Nick Reynolds, who was also his musical mentor; Tim, a friend of John Stewart since he was in his early twenties, is one of the few musicians outside the Trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds; and Don Marovich, a highly regarded musician who has also toured with the original Trio.

Musician Zac Wilkerson, whose style runs the gamut from soul and blues to folk, comes to the Bowery Stage.

As an artist making music in the state of Texas, there are names that are synonymous with talent, longevity and doing things right. One of those names is Walt Wilkins. Not only has Wilkins established himself as one of kind type of talent on the stage, but he has also proven to be a masterful producer and creator of albums for other artists. With names like Brandon Rhyder and Jason Eady amongst many other great talents, anyone setting out to make their debut album would be one lucky SOB to get Wilkins attached to that project… Enter Amarillo’s own Zac Wilkerson.

Kevin Galloway with Mark "gumB" Williams

7:30 pm

Kevin Galloway grew up in Big Sandy and Hawkins playing classic country and chasing a career in banking before he moved to Austin in 2002 where he began putting together the band, Uncle Lucius, Not surprisingly, Uncle Lucius came out of Austin, Texas. They really couldn’t have come from anywhere else, given the sound of the band. Rooted in the old-time country, blues, and rock of Texas music, dripping with soul, with a groove that made them sound loose but tight, with a jam band mentality that was always going to endear them to the live crowd, Uncle Lucius were the physical embodiment of the Austin independent music scene.

The band released their first album, ‘Something They Ain’t’ in 2006, having already established a solid reputation at some of Austin’s most prestigious live venues, such as Antone’s and the Saxon Pub. The album was well received in the local area, where they toured extensively to promote it. The first album was a self-released effort and achieved enough recognition for the band to prepare for a second album along the same lines. Their second album, ‘Pick Your Head Up’, was released in 2009 and was followed by their first live recording ‘Live at the Saxon Pub’, recorded in the December of that year. the band never really got a proper foothold outside of Texas. Mention Uncle Lucius to anyone who has heard them and they’ll rave about a band that could’ve/should’ve been a contender – but all too often you mention the band, outside of their home state, and get a blank stare. They are, perhaps, a prime example of how difficult it is for even the best of bands to break through to the top level.
