The Revivalists w/ Whisky Shivers
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.
