TheRevivalistsNOLA@gmail.com or through ye olde myspace.*....BIO.. Brillantivity. What is brilliantivity? Is it A) exercising brilliance in creativity? B) finding creative ways to be brilliant? C) A word that I just made up?.... D) All of the above... E) The Revivalists..... Since forming in 2007, The Revivalists have earned their standing among the best young bands in New Orleans. The group's combination of danceable rock and soulful songwriting (and brilliantivity) comes to life through a meticulously crafted and ever-evolving live performance. The band has been instrumental in the growth of New Orleans' burgeoning indie rock scene, and they have achieved success and notoriety in the city's competitive musical landscape. .... The Revivalists have proven themselves as a live act. In a short time they have managed to advance from low-profile local gigs to extensive touring, developing a loyal fan base at home and across the Gulf Coast Region and gaining footholds nationally. Abroad, they have commanded such venues as The Kennedy Center (Washington, DC), Sullivan Hall (New York City), Toad's Place (New Haven, CT), and Smith's Olde Bar (Atlanta, GA). At home, The Revivalists are regulars at The Howlin' Wolf, The Republic, and the legendary Tipitina's. They have shared stages with such notable acts as Perpetual Groove, Marco Benevento, Rebirth Brass Band, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, The Lee Boys and Snarky Puppy. Additionally, they have established themselves as an engaging festival act, winning over audiences at French Quarter Fest, Crawfest and Foburg Festival in New Orleans, Hamstock Barbecue and Music Festival in Ridgeland, MS, and The Duke Ellington Jazz Festival in Washington, DC. Most recently, The Revivalists played the 2010 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. There, they caught the attention of Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke, who wrote about their performance on his blog on rollingstone.com. .... The Revivalists have also grown as studio musicians. Their first release was listed as an editor's pick in both the Jam and American Traditional Rock categories on CDBaby.com, despite being a humble five-song EP. Their second release, Vital Signs, is both the band's first full-length album and a significant step forward in terms of production and scale. The young band was privileged to record under the guidance of Grammy Award-winning producer Chris Finney, whose resum� ranges from Dr. John to R.E.M. Vital Signs is the result of this collaboration. Soon after its release, Vital Signs became the top-selling album on CDBaby in the American Traditional Rock category, and was quickly selected to be featured in their newsletter. Experience The Revivalists. Understand brilliantivity. And prepare yourself, for your very life will soon have meaning. Listen to the music of The Revivalists and all of your wildest fantasies will become reality. ......PRESS.. 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, "Ones To Watch".... 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..... -David Fricke Senior Editor-Rolling Stone Magazine, Rollingstone.com, On The Ground at New Orleans Jazz Fest .... There's a fine line between a jam band and a band that jams. New Orleans' the Revivalists fall into the latter category. The group burst onto the scene in 2008 and honed their chops in 2009, expanding their live set as well as their songbook in the process. After spending some time in the studio, they return with Vital Signs, an album that brims with soulful melodies, explosive jams, and down-home rock 'n' roll… .... -Aarron Lafont, OffBeat Magazine, Album Reviews .... A staple of contemporary New Orleans music, the fusion of genres has become a popular channel for musicians to develop new sounds and to collaborate with the wide-ranging tastes of their fellow bandmates—The Revivalists, for example. .... -Carolyn Henegan, New Orleans Live Music Examiner, Jazz Fest Recap. .... The Revivalists know how to infect a live venue with a sense of purpose and energy. Their performances veer from pop sensible and anthemic to progressive and brooding, often within the space of the same song (often within the space of the same minute, in fact), 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. .... - Someamerican.com E.P Review .... 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 WWOZ 90.7 New Orleans Music Show .... 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! -Meghan Jones for NewOrleans.com 10/4/08 .... CDBABY.com Editor's Pick" in American Traditional Rock and Jam-Band Genres .. -November 2008 .... With the crowd gathered from the stage to the door, they served up a set of gritty, reggae-inflected rock that launched one of the most out-of-control parties that I've experienced in quite some time. Wrapping feel-good, danceable melodies around funky, shape-shifting jams, their songs came to life as their young, energetic fans latched on to and got down to their grooves .... -Groovescapes.com Concert Review .... The Revivalists set the bar high for showmanship when they opened the Gentilly Stage on Friday. Not only did they bring guests out before noon—the Rebirth Brass Band—but they also brought out burlesque dancers who removed their tops and revealed their pasties as the song came to an end. .... -Alex Rawls, Offbeat.com, Jazzfest Quick Thoughts .... ...... .. .. .. .. .. ................ ....JOIN US ON FACEBOOK .. .. .. ....The Revivalists.................. .... ........ .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ......follow therevivalists at http://twitter.com.......... ....
