The Revolutionaires

Over the last two decades The Revolutionaires have established themselves on the UK and European Rockin’ circuit.

They have toured extensively both home and abroad, performing at festivals in Ireland, France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Malta and Dubai.

Highlights include performing at festivals with artistes such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Sting, Tom Jones, Hugh Laurie, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, Walter Trout, Eric Bibb, The Mavericks, Albert Lee, Snake Davis and Dave Edmunds.

Ed - Guitar/Lead Vocals/Piano/Blues Harp
Founder member and driving force behind the band, Ed, draws his inspiration from various musical sources, including guitar vocalists, T-Bone Walker, Chuck Berry, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Brian Setzer, all of whom have influenced Ed’s guitar style, technique and various ‘chops’.

Other great performers of the 1950’s such as Little Richard, Elvis Presley and the master of Jump Blues, Louis Jordan, have also made a lasting impression on Ed and this is reflected in his performance as frontman and lead vocalist.

Over the years Ed has listened to many R’n’R and R&B recordings, watched hours of archive footage and read numerous books based on the roots of Rock’n’Roll. The knowledge he has gained from this, along with 20 years experience of gigging on the road, as well as his drive and enthusiasm makes him a natural leader for the band.

The Firebirds

Recognised as one of Europe’s top Rock n Roll bands The Firebirds are Jim Plummer, Dan Plummer, Rich Lorriman and Paul Willmott four first class musicians/vocalists able to cover the complete spectrum of music from the 1950s and 1960s, Commercial, Rockabilly, Harmonised Doo Wop, Instrumentals, Ballads, and self-penned number’s.

The band have undertaken extensive tours both at home and abroad, playing regularly at Holiday venues, Military Establishments, etc. Following their sell-out tour of Denmark, The Firebirds were invited to top the bill at the Messan Music Festival in the former capital of Yugoslavia and have since entertained passenger’s on four Mediterranean Cruises.

To date, the band have released three singles and twelve albums. The last five recorded in their own studio and on their own label ‘Rockville Records’ include a Rock’n’Roll Special with Linda Gail Lewis the sister of ‘The Killer’ Jerry Lee, and two Doo Wop albums – the second featuring guest vocalist Den Hegarty of ‘Darts’ fame. All our merchandise and albums are available worldwide as well on digital platforms such as iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

In 2000 the band made their first trip to the USA playing venues in Memphis and Las Vegas, and in 2002 were honoured to be invited back to play at the Carl Perkins Civic Centre in Jackson, Tennessee. This huge event marked 50 years of the Sun record label and the 25th anniversary of the death of Elvis.

The Firebirds have played the Paris Music Festival and Corporate functions in Switzerland, Italy and Denmark. At home, the Corporate events, amongst others, saw the band entertaining guests for the Priory Group, the David Lloyd Leisure Company and the Royal College of GP’s Annual Ball.

More recently, the band visited South America for the first time playing to sell-out crowds across Brazil. this tour coincided with the release of their latest album in which the band have emulated the original sounds of the 50’s and 60’s with jukebox classics.
