Artist Biography
The Honky Tonk Revue was founded in the summer of 2004 as Gal Holiday set out to create a band that harkened back to her rural roots in the mountains of Western Maryland. Having been raised on folk and bluegrass music, Gal longed for a re-connection to her musical "kinsfolk" in her new home of New Orleans where she had been transplanted 5 years earlier. Following Hurricane Katrina and her subsequent effects over the New Orleans musical community, The Honky Tonk Revue returned with a renewed spirit and musical vision. Since then they have been on a musical journey home with the addition of fellow transplants Don Williams, a gun-slinging guitar player from Upstate New York, South Carolina drummer James Clark and the unwavering support of longtime bass player, Dave Brouillette, a Natchitoches, Louisiana boy. Since adding in the sound of the pedal steel guitar, the shoes of which are filled by numerous players who share the duty of the 5th seat including the exceptionally proficient Steve Spitz, the sound came together in a way that Gal had never imagined. The band has recreated itself while maintaining a devotion to the spread of country music in Southern Louisiana and the oral traditions of rural America and radio hosts of yore with Gal's research and history of each song played. The Honky Tonk Revue plays Vintage Honky Tonk, Rockabilly and Classic Country music with a heavy dose of Western Swing for good measure. They sit poised on the edge of a country music revolution with the marketplace awakening to a new generation of musicians who have a deep-seated love and appreciation for the tried and true honky tonk sound of their predecessors; musicians like Webb Pierce from West Monroe, LA, Hank Williams and less known musicians from the past like Helen Hall, a hard hitting Texas song writer who experimented with country in it's various forms including rockabilly. What better Pied Pipers to lead us to country music salvation than Gal and her motley band of country boys?
