Since forming in 2007, The Revivalists have earned their standing among the best original bands in New Orleans. The group’s blend of soulful, syncopated rock and earnest songwriting comes to life through a meticulously crafted ever-evolving live performance. In 2011 they were named Best Emerging Artist at Gambit Magazine’s Big Easy Awards. The band is proud to be included in New Orleans’ burgeoning independent, original music scene.
The Revivalists have been touring since 2008 and thriving on the national level. They are proud to have opened for notable acts such as The Black Crowes, Tab Benoit, Dr. John, The Rebirth Brass Band, The Radiators, Marco Benevento, The Lee Boys, Perpetual Groove, Trombone Shorty, Snarky Puppy, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Soulive, and Galactic. Additionally, they have established themselves as an engaging festival act, winning over audiences at B.O.M.B Fest in Connecticut, DeLuna Fest in Florida, French Quarter Fest, The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage series in Washington, DC and the legendary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. There, they caught the attention of Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke, who wrote about their performance on rollingstone.com.
The Revivalists 2008 self-titled debut E.P was listed as an editor’s pick for both the Jam Band and American Traditional Rock on CDBaby.com (the leading online market place for independent artists). Their second release, 2010’s Vital Signs, is the band’s first full-length album. 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. Vital Signs quickly became the top-selling album on CDBaby in the American Rock category.
The Revivalists next album is scheduled for a release in early 2012 and is being produced by Ben Ellman, whose production credits include Galactic, Gypsyphonic Dysko, and Trombone Shorty.
