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.

Happy Earth Day everybody!  As long time residents of New Orleans, and a band that has played shows all up and down the Gulf of Mexico from the Keys of Florida to Texas, we have seen first hand how important the Gulf is to the people and the culture of the entire region.  One of the many organizations that has done a great job helping to support and protect it is The Gulf Restoration Network.  In honor of Earth Day we’re going to donate 25% of all sales of The Limited Edition Swamp Green ‘City of Sound’ Vinyl (and anything else you buy at the same time) through The Revivalists Online Store from now through the end of April to the GRN.  We also encourage you to check out their organization and the work that they do at



The Gulf Restoration Network is committed to uniting and empowering people to protect and restore the natural resources of the Gulf Region.

The GRN’s vision is that the Gulf of Mexico will continue to be a natural, economic, and recreational resource that is central to the
culture and heritage of five states and three nations. The people of the region will be stewards of this vital but imperiled treasure, and
they will assume the responsibility of returning the Gulf to its previous splendor.

Within this vision, we see the mission of the GRN as one of uniting and empowering people to protect and restore the resources of the Gulf Region for future generations. To this end, the GRN works to provide technical support and mentoring to grassroots groups, to connect our members to developments on national and regional issues of importance to their work, and to provide coordination, when needed, of member activities across the region.

The GRN’s staff also pursues campaigns on priority issues affecting the entire Gulf region, including water quality, wetlands, sustainable fisheries, smart energy, hurricane rebuilding, and species-at-risk. The GRN partners with other organizations on common initiatives within these arenas.  The GRN also engages individuals through information sharing, publications and an e-mail action alert network.  In this way, the GRN intends to play a pivotal role in providing our members and others with the technical information, Gulf-wide networking opportunities, and communication that will empower them to successfully address the environmental threats that the Gulf faces.
