Whiskey Bottle Theatre


Hey friends, check out The Waldemere Revival.


The Waldemere Revival recorded their debut album, Whiskey Bottle Theatre over 10 years ago at The Pop Machine recording studios in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Revivial were an incredible live band with a sizable national jam-band following. Their trippy shows were packed with hook-laden tunes, harmonica freak-outs, and experimental jams. Unfortunately, much to the dismay of their rabid fanbase, Whiskey Bottle Theatre was never released and the band broke up shortly after the recording sessions. TWR fans have long awaited the release of the music they remember grooving to at Waldemere's legendary live shows. Through the years, Whiskey Bottle Theatre developed an air of mystery fueled by a curious new generation of music loving hippies. Tragically, in 2019, their talented singer, Steve Martin passed away after battling leukemia. Steve had a loving wife, Kim, and a bright musical future ahead of him. As expected, fans, friends, and family were heartbroken but they all knew what Steve would have wanted; to immortalize his musical legacy by releasing The Waldemere Revival's Whiskey Bottle Theatre. TWR drummer extraordinaire, Justin Atkins had a plan. Atkins started a go fund me campaign and TWR fans generously responded by pledging thousands of dollars to unearth the mysterious unreleased double-album. Justin schemed with the record's producer, Marc Johnson to proceed with putting finishing touches on the record. Marc remixed the songs on Whiskey Bottle Theatre while Justin secured a record deal with Indie 500 Records. The band: Justin, Blain, Corey, Johnny, and Steve's widow, Kim all rejoiced after its release day. Check out Whiskey Bottle Theatre by The Waldemere Revival. Available on on Indie 500 Records.
