About The Revivalists
Since forming in 2007, The Revivalists have rightfully earned their reputation as the next breakout band from the music capital of New Orleans. The group’s blend of soulful, syncopated rock and earnest songwriting comes to life through a meticulously crafted and ever-evolving live performance. In 2011 they were named Best Emerging Artist at Gambit Magazine’s Big Easy Awards, and were nominated for Best Rock Act in 2012.
With the seed being planted during jam sessions at Tipitina’s Sunday Music Workshops, where drummer Andrew Campanelli and guitarist Zack Feinberg first met, the band found its frontman by pure luck when Feinberg heard David Shaw singing on his Birch Street porch. Fueling the rhythm section, Campanelli’s college friend, George Gekas, became the bassist. Feinberg later invited saxophonist Rob Ingraham, the two realizing their incontestable dynamic while taking music classes at Tulane University. After a fortuitous meeting at French Quarter Fest, Ed Williams joined on the pedal steel guitar. The newest addition to The Revivalists’ cross-generational rocking goodness comes from multi-instrumentalist Michael Girardot. Having played sporadically with the band since 2009, he has grown into an integral part of their live show.
The Revivalists incessantly tour on the national level, often times supporting giants like Rebirth Brass Band and Galactic. They’re also proud to have opened for notable acts JJ Grey & Mofro, Dr. John, and Trombone Shorty. Additionally, they have established themselves as an engaging festival act, gaining notoriety at CMJ (NYC), DeLuna Fest (Florida), Voodoo Music Fest (New Orleans), Hangout Music Festival (Gulf Shores, AL), The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage Series (Washington, DC) and the legendary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. At the latter they grabbed the attention of Rolling Stone Senior Editor, David Fricke, who later called their performance, “a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee.”
The Revivalists’ 2008 self-titled debut E.P was an Editor’s Pick for both the Jam Band and American Traditional Rock on CDBaby.com. The young band was privileged to record under the guidance of Grammy Award-winning engineer/producer Chris Finney, whose resumé ranges from Dr. John to R.E.M. Songs off the album have been featured on MTV, Paste Magazine’s Music Sampler, and on American Airlines flights. Their first full-length Vital Signs quickly became the top-selling album on CDBaby in the American Rock category.
The band’s latest album, City of Sound, released in March 2012, was produced by Ben Ellman, whose credits include Galactic, Gypsyphonic Dysko, and Trombone Shorty.
