Revenant is a band that is informed by the past while not being defined by it.  There's an elusive quality that would have made Revenant feel fresh and relevant in the classic decades of the Sixties and Seventies, as well as the Eighties, Nineties or 20 minutes ago.

Why? Perhaps it's because of the broad musical tastes of the individual members, and the band as a whole. Maybe it's because, unlike Axl Rose and Slash or the Gallagher Brothers, Revenant's members have genuinely liked one another for longer than fifteen minutes. It might be the interaction between them as they play.

Why doesn't matter. What matters is the potent musical brew that Revenant concocts, a heady recipe that makes people who hear the band smile and dance. The band has Revenatized their music and energized their fans, and their mission is to convert you to the Church Of Rock And Roll!

Welcome To The REVENANT Website

Revenant - The Band

 Formerly The Rhythm, we are now Revenant! Revenant is the brainchild of drummer/singer and writer, Steve Pavey. Steve spent a long time trying to find just the right band to work with. After years of work, he's assembled his dream band. 

What makes Revenant the best choice for you? Versatility that ranges from The Band to Joe Cocker, Sublime, and other great artists. We know how to keep people dancing!

What can you expect from Revenant? We have an emphasis on great vocals. Our 3 and 4 part harmonies set the tone for performances, showing audiences that they are about to hear something special. We can give a client a musical experience that ranges from Mountain to Motown! 

Special shout out to Tom, our newest member on guitar. Bands can often have flaky members and Revenant is no exception. When several members left with no notice at all, Tom stepped in and played a gig on short notice, leaving fans to ask "Michael Who? Tom is simply a better player than Michael...and more reliable.  And in a band, that's important.

Revenant is on it's way to becoming one of the premier party bands in the area. For booking information, please contact Steve at 720-771-8729 or email

Rhythm Notes

The core of Revenant 

I've had this website for over a decade now, and it's been busy! I've ran a trio, a 10 piece horn band and also quartets, quintets and sextets.

Revenant's members that I'm currently working with are some of the coolest and the most talented people I have ever worked with. Dave Able moved up here from Arizona, and spent a lot of time and helped with the heavy lifting to get to this point. He's left the group to move back to Arizona and I'll miss him. He is a very talented singer, guitarist, bassist  and also he plays a mean mandolin.

He also had some great stories about the seminal days in Canada when he was just  getting started in music, and he was rubbing shoulders with the guys that went on to back up Bob Dylan(The Band), and David Clayton Thomas before he was tapped to be Al Kooper's replacement in Blood Sweat And Tears!

Let me introduce you to the core of a great band, that's been 5 years in assembling! Tany Heart is our female lead and harmony singer. She also plays some guitar and percussion, and her voice....WOW! I am so happy to have her in
 the band. She's not only an amazing  singer, she's a great person who doesn't bring the usual drama queen attitude to the band.

Floyd and Michael are on guitars and vocals, Mark is on bass, and rounding out the band is David Dunbar on keys and vocals, and Deb Salter on vocals, flute and percussion  .With me on drums and vocals, we have a band that offers up Good Playin' and Good Singin', as Grand Funk once said. This is gonna be FUN!


From The Rhythm Junkies to The Rhythm Nation! 

 I started this website many years ago now as a way to promote
my new trio, as well as the activities of other groups I was friends
with such as Nightwolf. The trio ran it's course and I went on to
put together a 10 piece horn band.

The horn band was a lot of fun and a lot of work. It crashed and
burned after a year under the egos of so many extremely talented
people. The same day it disbanded, I put together The Rhythm
Junkies with Curtis and Vincent. Vincent left and was then replaced 
by a great keyboard player, Tracy Stokes. Due to the usual creative
tensions, I ended up leaving the band but they continue to be a force
of nature!

The new band is going to be even better than the Junkies! With even
better vocals and even more variety, we are gonna kick major butt!
