No wigs or Sgt. Pepper costumes, and hardly a fake British accent to be found. Just five energetic and entertaining musicians celebrating the music of the Beatles in a live, festive atmosphere. We are true to the music of the Fab Four while breaking out of the stale, cookie-cuttter staging that mimics someone else. That leaves our audiences with a unique live show that is in the moment, and allows us to use all of our individuality as entertainers and musicians.
With wide experience entertaining groups of all ages and types, REVOLVE is the perfect act for fundraisers, corporate socials, association gatherings, holiday parties, or any other event where you need professionals who know how to start the party and keep it hoping.
Whether you want to hear Abbey Road in its entirety, or the set list from Shea Stadium, we can customize an event to include every aspect of the Beatles incredible catalogue. We are also happy to supplement our sets with other classic rock, Motown, and even current hits, so if you want us to include more music from the British invasion, dance hits, or just your favorite party music we'll make sure you get the entertainment you are looking for.
The members of REVOLVE all grew up listening to and enjoying Beatles music. They realized just how long lasting and deep the Beatles impact was and how their influence can still be heard almost 50 years later in modern music. They have developed a band that showcases the music that influenced and inspired the Beatles, the music that the Beatles created that we've all loved for so many years.
Ray Saputelli - Lead vocals:
Ray has been performing his entire life -- starting at a very young age at the kitchen table...hopefully those photos are long gone! Whether in the theater, in front of a band, or as a professional host/MC, Ray leverages his stage presence and ability to connect with an audience to make each event unique, energetic, and exciting.
Barry Siegfried - Guitars, vocals:
Barry is a classically trained guitarist. He caught the guitar "bug" when he was 8 years old, after seeing the Beatles perform on the Ed Sullivan Show. After playing in a variety of "garage" bands in his teen years, Barry toured with two Regional Bands before honing his skills as a session guitarist. After a 12 year sabbatical from music, Barry reemerged with a backlog of material and formed an original recording project (Never Monday). Barry has played in a number of bands and projects such as: Wednesday's Child, Woes, Wet Betty, Beer Solves Everything and CTS, but his first love has always been the music of the Beatles. As he puts it, "This is a dream gig, because I get to play the music I grew up with and love without being restricted to a note for note interpretation of the Fab Four. We can take the music anywhere we feel inspired to go, and that's a good thing!"
Tim Justice - Keys, Orchestration, Vocals:
Tim was raised in a musical family. Tim's father, the school orchestra director, gave him two instruments to learn, string bass and piano. In school he played string bass in competitive orchestra. After high school, he attended Shenandoah Conservatory for musical Performance. After college, he returned home and joined the music scene playing keys. Tim performed thru out Central PA's major outdoor venues like Hershey Park Amphitheatre and The PA State Fair. After relocating to New York, Tim jumped into the club scene, performing in throughout Manhattan, Long Island, and Connecticut. In 2001 he relocated to St Louis, where he played with national recording artist Bobby Womack, and several touring musicians, playing the St Louis club and casino scene. In 2006, Tim relocated to Milwaukee, playing keys for several R&B/Funk bands, including The Campbell's an area mainstay. 2009 brought Tim back to PA where he has been a member of Well Strung, a local classic rock band. Ironically, Tim was born the same day Sgt Pepper's was released, so fate has brought him back to where it all began, playing keys with Revolve.
Rich Lewis - Bass:
Rich became interested in guitar after seeing The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Early in his musical life he was a saxophone player in the high school marching band and "hated every minute of it," but during that time, Rich became best friends with ground-breaking jazz musicians who expanded his musical vision. Wanting to be in a rock and roll band and noticing a need for bass players, Rich switched instruments for good. At that time, The Sgt.Pepper Album had just been released. Rich recognized the genius in Paul McCartney and began a lifetime pursuit of his style. Rich plays a Fender Precision Bass through a TC Electronics amplifier.
Jim Curran - Drums, Percussion
Jim started playing drums at age 13. He has played for numerous blues, rock and country artists in the tri-state area. Major drum influences include Ringo, Charlie Watts, and any drummer who has played for Steely Dan. Jim plays Gretsch drums.
