Praise for The Revivalists:

“The sweet, wistful Wish I Knew You encapsulates the band’s varied strengths with brittle stabs of funk guitar, dub-influenced keys and colorful splashes of brass.” – Rolling Stone

“The Revivalists are drawing impressively large crowds…” – Billboard

“…the band keeps older forms of music like blues and R&B alive, but its spirited performance also recalls a gospel revival.” – NPR World Café

“Men Amongst Mountains…melds genres ranging from Southern-tinged rock ‘n’ roll to blues and jazz.” Interview

“…[with] musical influences that lean heavily on the older styles and warmer sounds of the golden age of rock ‘n roll, The Revivalists have managed to craft a genre-hopping sound all their own…backed by a plethora of instrumental talent that’s impossible to ignore…”Nylon

Toronto, ON – May 8th, 2017 – The Revivalists continue their incredible rise as hit single, Wish I Knew You,reaches #1 at Alternative Radio this week, and sets a new record for most single-week spins ever at the format. The song is also breaking now at Hot AC, and claimed the #1 spot at Adult Alternative Radio last Fall, spending 40 weeks on the chart and becoming the most played song behind The Lumineers’ Ophelia. First released in July 2015, Wish I Knew You has had a remarkable trajectory and a staying power rarely seen in music today. Featuring wistful lyrics, front man David Shaw’s unmistakable soulful rasp, an indelible melody and a mix of bluesy rock and Southern R&B swagger not usually heard at the Alternative format, it’s no wonder Wish I Knew You has catapulted the New Orleans seven-piece to major success, national TV appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres ShowTODAY and Conan, and back-to-back sold out headlining tours.

After drawing a sea of fans for their explosive set on the main stage at New Orleans Jazz Fest this past weekend, The Revivalists will embark on a whirlwind summer of festival appearances and their Fire Into Light headlining tour, including a very special performance at New York City’s Central Park SummerStage on August 10th. See full routing below. For ticket info, please visit http://www.therevivalists.com.

Recognized as a stellar live band featuring pedal steel guitar, sax and trumpet, The Revivalists are praised for their eclectic Southern mix of jazz-funk grooves, blues rock grit, warm melodies and masterful musicianship. Listen to the band’s latest album, Men Amongst Mountains (Washington Square Music/Concord) here.

The Revivalists are: David Shaw [lead vocals/guitar], Zack Feinberg [guitar], Andrew Campanelli [drums], George Gekas [bass], Ed Williams [pedal steel guitar], Rob Ingraham [saxophone], Michael Girardot [keyboard & trumpet].
