The Revivalists Come to NYC Tonight
The Revivalists electrified at SXSW this year with the Austin Chronicle tagging them as a must see show and saying, "The Revivalists are New Orleans' latest groove monsters, combining all types of American music into a whole that's unlike anything that's come before it." They recently came off of a monumental performance at Jazzfest in New Orleans which was captured by Rolling Stone, Spin, American Songwriter, Relix and more.
The Revivalists return to NYC to play THE WATERMARK as part of the 5th Annual NolaFunk Summer Jazzfest, TONIGHT, AUG 14th.
During Mardi Gras, Wind-up Records re-released their album, City of Sound with eight live bonus tracks from various sold out shows from the Fall of 2013. The album was produced by Ben Ellman (Galactic, Trombone Shorty) and recorded under the guidance of Grammy Award-winning engineer/producer Chris Finney (Dr. John, R.E.M.).

The Revivalists have been touring non-stop the last few years, dominating the festival circuit playing Bonnaroo, Jazz Fest, Voodoo Festival, Governor's Ball, Hangout, Mountain Jam and countless others. They've been featured by everyone from USA Today, Rolling Stone andFuse TV to Paste, The Huffington Post and Daytrotter. They appropriately also performed on the fourth and final season of HBO's acclaimed drama series, Treme.
The Revivalists craft a genre-hopping sound that rounds out traditional rock instrumentation with horns and pedal steel guitar and mixes the divergent backgrounds of its individual members with the humid, funky undercurrents of the band's New Orleans home. The result is like English spoken with an exotic accent: familiar, yet difficult to pin down. Religion aside, a revival is all about the tangible electricity that can only be created when enough like minds are crammed whole greater than the sum of its parts.
