    Revibe - a "jam" band proggers would probably like

    Revibe is getting ready to release their second album. I believe this will be 4 different tracks on 2 discs.

    I'm not that much of a fan of long, drawn-out improved stuff and these guys have generally kept their stuff pithy so I'm really looking forward to this.

    But they need help...

    I'm curious, but would like to hear some of their music first. What's their first album called? Google is proving to be unhelpful for me.

    You can find their first album here. https://revibevt.bandcamp.com/album/...d-in-fiction-2


    My son is one of the drummers on the debut album, but he was in the process of leaving the band as the recording was being done. Sounds like this new one will be a bit more polished.

    Thanks!

    And that's really cool your son played drums with them. Does he still play in any other groups?

    No, not really. He has a daughter now and spent the last year going through a divorce. He's finally starting to settle back into a good place where he might have some time to dedicate to a band one of these days. I was able to convince him to fill in with one of the bands I was playing in this past summer which was a fun experience.

    Whenever you hear anything on that first album with double kick drum that's him.

    Ah man, I'm sorry to hear that about the divorce. I hope he's doing as well as can be expected at least.

    It's nice you were able to get him to fill in with your band though; that was probably helpful too. Actually, I'm playing in a band with my father currently.

    And I will be listening for the double kick drum on that first Revibe album.

    He's quite happy about the divorce and now has the house to himself....master of his domain. He also just met a very nice lady he's been dating for a couple months. So all is well!

    The two gigs he played with our steel band this summer were a new challenge for him. He had to learn soca, Bossa nova, and reggae ("one drop"). We were all shocked at how well he learned all our tunes. We have other people who have filled in several times who never remembered where all the "hits" were supposed to be, etc. It makes all the difference.

    It makes for some great memories for me. As of last week, I've quit both bands I was playing with.

    First sample from the upcoming album. Vocals are a bit reminiscent of Richard Sinclair. In fact I get a Canterbury vibe in parts of this:

    The new album is now available for streaming. A huge step up from their first album. I'm really liking this stuff:
