Eli Cook

Eli Cook

The Stormy Monday Blues Revue is an interactive performance series that celebrates the power of the blues - past, present, and future.

Experience blues music performed by a wide range of artists in an intimate setting. Each show includes a segment where musicians in the audience will have a chance to join the featured performer on stage for a jam session. Our spotlight performer is Eli Cook, a guitarist described as “lean, mean, gritty" by American Blues Scene magazine.

Eli comes from the crossroads of blues, the highways of rock, and the backroads of country, and with his gritty voice, there ain’t nothing like it. His guitar prowess includes pickin’, slidin’, and strummin’ from a Fender to a National Resonator Tri-Cone; he amazes the traditionalists and scares the modern players.

Born and raised at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in VA, Eli started young, and by the time he was 18, he was playing church revivals, “juke-joints” and opening up for B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Big Wreck, Robin Trower, Sue Foley, Jimmie Vaughan, Selwyn Birchwood and John Mayall to name a few. He’s play the Birchmere (VA), The Hamilton (DC), Wellmont Theater (NJ), The State Theater (VA), Eddie’s Attic (Atlanta), The Jefferson (VA), The 5 Spot (Nashville, TN), BB King’s in NYC, and every dive bar in between. Eli has made the trek to California and back through Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas.

Press has been kind to Eli, from Guitar Player to No Depression to Elmore to Blues Music Magazine, Blues Matters (UK) to Maverick and many more. He’s a delight on the radio interviews, and of course, live shows are where Eli piles the food on plates for his listeners.

With only 85 seats, shows at Révéler are intimate and immersive. A romantic venue with exquisite sound and dreamy vibes, Révéler offers a unique selection of cocktails, wines, beers, bubbles, and non-alcoholic beverages. Our kitchen delivers small plates crafted with care.
