The Statesboro Revue
The Statesboro Revue are widely known as one of the most accomplished band of musicians on the Texas Music scene. Their second CD, ‘Ramble on Privilege Creek‘ released earlier this year is a clear example of just how good this band is. Fresh off a stellar performance of the National Anthem at a recent Houston Astros game, Stewart Mann and his band the Statesboro Revue are coming to Abilene to play free show at Bar 14.

The true weight of any band is determined by how they translate to us in a live performance setting. Can they make a connection with their audience? Can they relay their emotions and draw us into their world? Does their energy move us? These are probably some of the questions one writer from Rolling Stone Magazine had running through his head before he proclaimed The Statesboro Revue as one of the highlights of the 2009 South by Southwest Conference and Festival. The Statesboro Revue goes back to 2008, but the evolving vision of front man and primary songwriter Stewart Mann goes back much further. It’s a journey down many roads from Texas to Tennessee to California and back, all in a search for that perfect, unspoiled place for his music to grow roots. Year after year in city after city, it became clear that those roots had taken hold on stage and from there grew into a groove oriented, old school rock and roll band, the likes of which have not been seen in quite some time.
It’s one thing to go to a concert or festival and see a band you’ve loved for years. But it’s another, amazing thing when you discover your new favorite band for the first time in an intimate setting. That’s what just might happen when you go to see The Statesboro Revue August 17th at Bar 14. It’s a free concert, and you’ll walk away thinking you would have paid top dollar to see this band. Don’t miss this opportunity.
