The true meaning of the band’s name…. “Revolver”
Over the years of the band’s existence every now and then people would ask us where the name “Revolver” came from. Before we could even answer the question we would have multiple rapid fire questions volleyed our way : “Did you name the band after the gun?” or “ Are you a Beatle’s tribute band? Wait !….what?….no!….Being a huge Beatle’s fan Howie would have loved to make you think so. While discussing this very subject with the two founding members of the band, Howie “Zowie” Colclough and Ron Andrews at length a while back, the name of the band had a more significant meaning then one would expect. The band has been through multiple line up changes over its 40+ year history and has performed many different styles of music over that time.The band has played technical rock by the likes of Steely Dan,Yes and Jeff Beck to Disco and Pop music, right up to their present day genres of Blues, Classic, and Southern Rock….(Allman Brothers Band, Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd…..you get the picture!) Revolver has “Evolved” over the years due to the constant growth and steady progression of music the band has ingested, performed and “Revolverized”.
The true meaning of the name Revolver is this: It’s the “evolution of rock and roll”….two R’s on each end of “evolve”. We’ve seen the band’s name grace many club marques as: “The Revolvers” or “Revolver Band” to name a couple….Nope !….it’s “Revolver”….The Rock band from the North Shore area of Boston, Ma. that has delivered quality kick-ass music since 1977. So there you have it!
The members of Revolver want to express our sincere gratitude and thanks for all of the support we have received through the years. We still love to perform for our fans as well as for those hearing us for the first time (where in the hell have you been!…Lol!). It’s a privilege and still a thrill to play music for people, to take away their worries of life, even for just a little while…..Music = Life! In our opinion it’s the best stress relief there is! We still have some gas in the tank and look forward to continuing this Rock & Roll journey to see where it takes us.

Until the next time….Keep On Rockin”!
