The Revivalists / Press

“It was merely gray and humid when a young New Orleans group, the Revivalists, kicked off the day with a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee and, at the end of the set, a barely-R-rated burlesque troupe. Singer-guitarist David Shaw had a dash of Dave Matthews in his crusted tenor, but there was a heavy-rock spring in the Revivalists' strut, and pedal-steel guitarist Ed Williams added distinctive wah-wah-treated scream to "Appreciate Me" and "Soul's Too Loud," both from the group's new album, Vital Signs. ”

“The Revivalists have become a staple to the ever-evolving New Orleans music scene. Seamlessly crossing back and forth between the indie rock bands and vibrant funk and jazz genres, the Revivalists have taken the city by storm and now they are ready to take their music even further…By incorporating both a pedal steel and saxophone, the band puts an unusual twist on what could be a common sound…the Revivalists combination of unique mixture of flavors manages to produce a sound that bends genre and pushes listeners out of their comfort zone.” ”

Madison LaGrone - Where Y’at Magazine,

“One of the only new bands to catch my ear in the last year has been The Revivalists...They are a return to organic sounds and fat grooves, hip lyrics and good tunes. I highly recommend going to see them play, and supporting them by buying the CD.”

“There definitely is no better live music than The Revivalists, at least in my mind for right now, we wish you good luck and to keep going and keep giving it to us for many more years.”

DJ Sherwood Collins - stated on air WWOZ 90.7 FM New Orleans

“The Revivalists know how to infect a live venue with a sense of purpose and energy... and show an innate talent for finding the balance in the tricky dichotomy of a hooky chorus and an indulgent jam. The overall effect is inspiring, and, most importantly, never boring”

“Considering it takes most bands so much longer than a year to make such an impact and gather this many fans, these guys must be lucky... Nope, they're just that good!”
