The brash blasts of the accordion, the shuffle of feet, and the wailing vocals in old French … these are the sounds of Cajun music well-known throughout the United States and abroad. But for Louisiana-based band The Revelers, it’s just the start of the story. 

Headquartered in the city of Lafayette in Southwest Louisiana’s Cajun Country (New Orleans is home to jazz, but not a native home to Cajun music), the band is dedicated to the “holy trinity” of Cajun culture: hot music, all-night dancing, and great food. But they’re determined to explore the larger world of Louisiana music as well, and with their new album, The End of the River (Au bout de la rivière), they’re tapping into their deep lifetimes of knowledge of Swamp Pop, Zydeco, and old-school Louisiana dancehall music. They’ve synthesized all of these different traditions into a new sound—their own sound.
