Four very gifted musicians and songwriters first formed in Huntsville in 1965 after the four watched The Beatles with the rest of the world on the Ed Sullivan Show. The band consisted of two sets of brothers, Mike and Kenny Webber and Vannie and Dannie Warren. They took the strange name of ‘The So…But So What?’ Kenny wrote a song, “I Will Cry,” which became the only record they released, under that band name. 500 copies were pressed.
All four guys discovered that talent of songwriting. And, like a lot of bands back then, they were heavily influenced by the British Invasion sound of The Beatles. They began to perfect their sound by performing Beatle’s songs and eventually changed their name from ‘The So…But So What’ to ‘Revolver’ based on the 1966 Beatles’ album of the same name. They felt no one could remember the other name. The band could pretty well do any Beatles’ song and sounded enough like the Beatles to fool the most avid listener. While they became known for their Beatles’ shows, they also performed rock standards and a lot of original material written by the various band members.
Two other singles were issued under their ‘Revolver’ name, “Surrender” and “My Little Girl.”
All four members continue to perform with various bands and occasionally reunite to do Beatle shows at various locations around Birmingham and Huntsville.
The most prominate of these other bands is Razz Ma Tazz, which includes Mike and Kenny Webber and another ARCA Honorary Member, Henry Lovoy.
Sadly, Darren Warren passed away in 2015, but the band carries on, in one form or another.
