Smart Bets: The Revelers

Southwest Louisiana-based Cajun, blues and swing outfit The Revelers is made up of members of The Red Stick Ramblers and the Pine Leaf Boys (including fiddler Daniel Coolik, a former Asheville resident). They were featured on season three of HBO show Treme, and on the season finale of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. In February, the band released its self-titled debut album. And, on Saturday, March 16, they bring the "trickery, good times and revelry in which The Revelers are renowned experts" to The Grey Eagle stage. 9 p.m., $10/$12.
