Band of the Day: Electric Revolution

Sometimes, you just can’t beat the classic sounds.

Simple things first – where are you guys from?

The Milwaukee/Chicago area, Kenosha Wisconsin. Sandwiched between both Milwaukee and Chicago.

How did you meet?

Dave Lawson the vocalist and myself Billie Pulera the brummer worked together in the past, we recruited Brock Betz lead guitarist 2017 knowing he was perfect for the position. We lost our original bassist and Chad Imler stepped in to complete the line up in 2018. The unit is complete and full of fire, we all couldn’t be happier.

How long have you been playing as a band?

With this line up, since 2018. The band was actually formed in 2014. The vision and mission were there but not the personnel. Various ups and downs, trials and tribulations were taking place to further the project in a positive direction, so actually we look at this as a whole different animal that was convinced for the better in 2018. There was more productivity in one year than in its whole existence.

Before you get sick of being asked… where does the band name come from?

After compiling a list of action based words that would not only sound cool but would look cool in print as well, Electric and Revolution were pleasing to the eye and rolled quite nicely off the tongue. The two words when added together seemed like a great name for a hot rock and roll band, so we went with it.

What are your influences?

Everyone has different influences within the band but I think the core genre would be classic hard rock I guess, blues rock, early heavy metal etc.

Describe your music. What makes you unique?

Our music is a blend of everything mentioned above with a current twist if you will, our guitarist Brock Betz being more of an innovative younger guitarist adds a different flair to the classic rock foundation this music is built on.

Do you have any particular lyrical themes?

I think it pertains to the song at hand during the writing process, most often our music is based on human emotion, thought, life experience as well as fictional storylines.

What’s your live show like? How many shows have you played?

Picture a very hungry alley cat that was thrown into a cage full of mice! Very high energy, focused and fun at the same time. As far as how many shows we’ve played? Too many to count off hand but there are some that definitely stick out as being magically memorable.

What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?

That’s a hard one, nothing really comes to mind, but what I will say is that it’s always a good time.

What kit do you use / guitars do you play / etc.?

Pearl drums, Zildjian and Paiste cymbals, Boss Katana guitar amplifier, Ibanez and Gretsch guitars. Ampeg SVT bass rig, Fender basses.

What are your plans for 2019?

Our plans for 2019 are to play as many great shows as possible, write and record another album. We’d like to put out one album every year if that’s possible.

If you were second on a three-band bill, which band would you love to be supporting and which band would you choose to open for you? A chance to plug someone you’ve toured with, or a mate’s band we’ve not heard of before!

I would have to say, Van Halen! That would be a great fit, and to support us… I’d probably go with a local band called Mixed Company.
