The Rocket Revellers
The Rocket Revellers are the house band at Gastown’s Revel Room. Lead vocalist Dennis Brock designed and built the Revel Room in 2008 to be an extension of his living room and bring a little bit of Southern Hospitality to Vancouver. From his beginnings in San Francisco Rock & Roll Group Skin N Bones he shifted to more blues & swing style after recording at Sun Studios in Memphis with his group Denny & the Magnets. Dennis’s vocal style has evolved to include roots, gospel, and swing standards. The Revellers came together organically as a group in 2012 after many jams together and play a mixture of Texas Swing, Roots, & Rockabilly. Other members include Jimmy Roy on lapsteel, Patrick Metzger on upright bass, guitar wizard Stephen Nikleva, James “Hollywood” Badger on drums, and boogie woogie piano legend Michael Van Eyes.
