Rose Hill Revival

After playing in front of Greg Allman at the historic King Biscuit Blues Festival in Arkansas, Chicago based artist and producer Kevin Purcell was inspired to bring together some of area’s finest veteran musicians and assembled their talents to dedicate special shows to the music of the Allman Brothers. After years of playing in some of the areas biggest bands, these award-winning musicians gathered to spotlight the music of Greg and Duane Allman, playing all of the favorites while putting new spins on other songs, as well as performing the songs that inspired Greg and Duane, and showcasing some of the songs that Duane played on before he joined the Allman Brothers. Great music, great band, great experience!!

What People Are Saying…

Sunshine Sonny Payne – KFFA Radio (King Biscuit Time) – longest running blues show in history

…take my word for it, I’ve heard harp players comin’ out of my ears…it was legit, this guy did his own thing..I’ve sat here year in and year out, and I’ve heard ‘em all…and it’s just amazing..


Daily Herald:

…very intense showman…been known to come down in the audience and sit on laps, dance from table to table, and dance across the bar…some of the best music this side of the Mississippi…


New City Magazine:

…with a mob-like audience stacked to the ceiling…Purcell dished out a fiery set that barely rose above the decibels of the screaming crowd….


Reggi Hopkins, Music Critic:

He bound from one end of the stage to the other with an energy that the crowd wildly fed from. It was a fast paced show through and through…I couldn’t help but praise his intense showmanship.


Inland Empire Arts and Entertainment Weekly:

…Purcell and company have proven that their style (of music) is a major force to watch for from a new generation of performers. The intense showmanship of this rockin’ blues band will give the right combination for a great evening of live music and fun…

Kevin Purcell  has consistently reinvented the genre, creating a unique blend of traditional blues mixed with a generous measure of southern rock. You cannot stand still at a show; it’s not possible. Lead vocalist and harmonica player, Kevin Purcell is a consummate performer who thrives on engaging the audience in the music and the show.


95WIIL Rock:

Down to earth musicians with great attitudes and a rockin’ blues show …


US 99.5  (Americas Country Station) Midday DJ Bill Lloyd:

…they’re just a damn good band. I’ve seen people just stand and watch the band slack-jawed in some sort of attempt to glean some of the energy coming from the stage…
