Angela Long, Lead and Harmony Vocals
Singing has always been a big part of my life. I’ve wanted to sing for as long as I can remember. It seems like it’s always been a part of who I am. I started my professional training as a singer when I was 11 years old. I studied hard and went to the University of Colorado at Boulder when I was 18. I began my professional training as a classical vocalist there. I got a bachelors degree in music education with an emphasis in voice and general music in 1987. I played in a few rock bands while I kept to studying classical voice and in 1993 I joined a choir called the Musicians of St Claire. We performed for World Youth Day in 1993 when Pope John Paul II came to Denver. The Pope liked us so much that he asked us to come and sing for him in 1994 at his summer house in Castel Gandolfo. I stayed in that choir for the next 25 years and I’ve been to Italy to sing for the Pooe, the Vatican and several other venues eight times since that first trip in 1994. I’ve also performed for the Opera Colorado, and the Colorado Symphony Chorus. I’m so happy to be working with the Revenant Band and I’m looking forward to all of the great times that lie ahead!
Angela has sang with both the Mile Hi Groove Band and So What Brothers, among others. When she auditioned for Revenant, the first thing she did was tell a Drummer joke;the 2nd thing she did was SING! We knew she'd be perfect for us!! She brings a lot of experience and training to the table and we are EXCITED to welcome her to Revenant!
Drums and vocals
He grew up in Indiana down the road a piece from Seymour, John
Mellencamp's home town. With 11 aunts and uncles, he was exposed
to a wide variety of music at a young age and has loved playing that
wide variety of styles ever since.
After playing in local groups around town, he got his professional start
with Larry Groce("Junk Food Junkie") and went on to work with
Raspberries, Looking Glass and James Griffin, the guitarist/vocalist for
One of his bands recorded for A&M, and opened for Bread, Steppenwolf,
Billy Preston and Three Dog Night as well as several other major acts.
Steve also worked in the Midwest for BHE and GMA in artist management
and booking before moving to Colorado.
Revenant is the latest and greatest of many bands.
Barb Ussery- Vocals/Bass
Barb knows a LOT of songs, and plays bass and sings both lead and harmony. She's also been known to play guitar. Barb is one of those refreshing straight shooters, who says what she means and means what she says. We are thrilled that she's joined Revenant!
A GIT graduate who has been playing for over 3 decades, Floyd likes all genres of music and is very versatile. While he takes the music seriously, he's very easy to get along with and to work with. The style he's most comfortable with is shreddy blues rock along the lines of Slash, Joe Bonamassa, and Frank Marino. Of course, Floyd's perfect band would be a mix of King Crimson, Led Zeppelin and Frank Zappa.
Tom O'Connor, Guitar and Vocals
When our previous 2nd guitarist left the band with no notice just before a gig, Barb recommended Tom to take his place. She had played with him in other bands in the past and knew that he was a rock solid player. A few days after our first rehearsal together, he played his first gig with Revenant! Tom can play both rhythm and lead WELL, and he works REALLY well with Floyd.
