The Revivalists Perform an Intimate Show at Buffalo’s Waiting Room

August 25th, 2014


It may have been a Tuesday night but it soon seemed like a weekend night as soon as David Shaw (vocals, guitar) and The Revivalists started to really get going. Shaw asked the crowd to move right up close and the spaced out room became very intimate in no time. One thing you will find in many Revivalists shows is Shaw enjoys to be part of the crowd, often jumping into the crowd and mingling with his fans. Shaw has so much soul in his voice and his actions at times really speaks largely to what this band has become. He is backed by some solid musicians and his band has just as much fun on the stage that Shaw seems to have off stage. The seven piece band played their hearts out and it may have been a smaller show in the grand scheme of things but they sure didn’t give that impression to the Buffalo fans.

Setlist: All in The Family, When I’m Able, Stand Up, Concrete, Keep Going, Catching Fireflies, Two Ton, Not Turn Away, Navigate Below, It Was a Sin, Soulfight, Fade Away, Souls To Loud

The Revivalists, In The Studio – Soundcheck WNYC

August 14th, 2014

WNYCJust with its name alone, The Revivalists evokes the tradition of New Orleans funk that surrounds its hometown. With big horns, wah-wah guitar, and indelible, funky rhythms pervading each song, the band’s latest release, City Of Sound, projects that NOLA feel loud and clear.

But, as evidenced in “Navigate Below,” there’s a strong rock sensibility, teased out by the growl of lead singer David Shaw. Renowned for its live performances, The Revivalists’ showcase an uncanny ability to genre-blend and create a sound that at once calls back to the past and navigates its own distinct path. Hear The Revivalists perform live in the Soundcheck studio.

Nylon Guys Video Premiere: The Revivalists ‘Navigate Below’

July 31st, 2014

Stemming from New Orleans 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–one that translates all too well during live performances.

As result, it’s no surprise that the Big Easy septet has been touring non-stop the last few years, tackling festivals like Bonaroo and Governor’s Ball to name a few. Now through their latest video, the group puts their unmatched musicianship on display via visuals that document a live rendition of “Navigate Below.”

The guys bring an undeniable big sound to the stage that’s backed by a plethora of instrumental talent that’s impossible to ignore. Check out the video below, and keep up The Revivalists’ tour schedule HERE.
