We are Revenant and our website is www.denverrevenantband.com . We play a wide variety of music designed to get audiences dancing.
The band members are:
Floyd Van Deusen - Guitar, Slide Guitar and Vocals
Barb Ussery - Bass and vocals
Tom - Guitar and vocals
Steve Pavey - Drums and Vocals
Floyd is a GIT graduate, and has been playing a long time. His eclecticism is amazing! Floyd's ideal band would be along the lines of Joe Bonamassa meets King Crimson and Frank Zappa.
Barb Ussery comes to us by way of Pull The Trigger and Bad Toby. She is an all around cool person to hang with and a fun person to play music with.
Tom played with Barb in Pull The Trigger, and she recommended him to Steve. No drama and a helluva guitar slinger!
Last but not least, Steve rounds out the group on Drums as well as vocals. He founded Revenant 5 years ago. Playing his first professional jobs as a teenager, he played with Larry Groce for a whle and Jimmy Griffin, the guitarist/vocalist/songwriter for Bread. He's not an especially flashy drummer, just one who serves the song like his idols, Jim Keltner and Ringo Starr.
In the world of bands, you have members come and members go. Sometimes it's straightforward and sometimes it's not. In Revenant's case, we have been a band for over five years with a very stable lineup for the past year plus...when things went sideways. Our bassist of 3 years gave us advance notice that he was leaving, and our longtime substitute, Barb, came onboard as our permanent bassist to replace him. Several other people weren't so upfront and left us just before an upcoming gig. Tom stepped in and, because we've played with and without a keyboard player, we pulled the gig off just fine without them! This has given us an opportunity to update our sets, which is only going to increase the WOW factor!
