Founded in 2008, The Statesboro Revue is a Texas Country band that was built on the premise of starting something that incorporated all different sounds of music, including rock and roll, country, and good grooves. Lead singer and founding member Stewart Mann spoke with JTAC News in anticipation of TSR’s performance with Whiskey Meyers on Saturday, Oct. 31 at City Limits.

According to Mann, he and his younger brother Garrett founded the band with the initial goal of bringing a blend of music together for a unique, signature sound. Mann shared that his favorite song was one he wrote to honor a friend who passed away.

“It was one of those songs where you feel so much and you have to write it,” said Mann. “I haven’t even put it on a record. I probably will eventually because I think it is the right thing to do for his family.”

However, Mann’s favorite recorded song is “Roll On Mama” off of TSR’s new album Jukehouse Revival.

“I actually wrote this song about an MIP that I got when I was 16,” Mann admitted with a laugh.

Mann was born and raised in Texas just outside of Austin, and traveled the country quite a bit before starting The Statesboro Revue, to be able to find the perfect sound for group. Now, years later, the brothers are no stranger to travel.

“Its tough being on the road so much,” Mann said. “We played 37 shows in 50 days, and its tough.”

However, Mann also said that the best part if his job was the traveling.

“You get to see new places and meet new people. But you also get to see people that you’ve met before,” said Mann. “I’ve gotten to make so many friends and then see them again while touring.”

Mann said that he is most looking forward to the future of The Statesboro Revue, and being able to write the best songs he can. The band has certainly seen plenty of success – Jukehouse Revival hit the Top 10 on the Americana Music Chart and the single “Undone” is #7 on the Texas Music Chart this week.

The Statesboro Revue will continue the next leg of their tour with Whiskey Meyers at City Limits on Saturday, Oct. 31.
