About the Hepcats!

Our Sound

Hepcat Revival is a 7 piece band based in Northwest Ohio. While we're known for our energetic jump blues, jazz, and swing, our instrumentation and experience gives us the ability to bring on the soul, R&B, and funk. We adjust our deep repertoire to the event or show, making us a great choice for your club, festival, concert series, wedding, or corporate event. We travel, and have performed in Chicago, New York, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio, and West Virginia.

Our lineup:

Greg Tye - Vocals

Vince Krolak - Trumpet/Flugelhorn

Stan George - Alto/Tenor Sax

Ken Zuercher - Guitar

Pete Ford - Keys

Tom Ritter - Bass

Travis Knepper - Drums 

We're celebrating our 25th year in 2023, and rode the wave of jump blues and swing bands emerging in the 1990's. We were regularly featured for swing dances in Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh, and continue to be a part of the Cleveland area swing dance scene. While our lineup has changed over the years, we've not only remained true to the traditions of the jazz era, but we've also expanded our musical styles to put our signature sound to modern styles. 

While many bands have come and gone in the region, we continue to thrive, and are looking forward to bringing you more music in the years ahead! Recently, we were featured in 3 music series: Perrysburg's Music in the Market Series, Fostoria Arts Council's Summer Concert Series, and Grand Rapids Rhythm on the River Concert Series. What set's us apart is our musical versatility--we truly delve into many styles our creative renditions!

We're thrilled to be booking shows into 2024--if you've got a special event, club date, or show in mind, please contact us for more information!
