The Revivalists personify the mystical world that is New Orleans this 7-piece band formed only after a chance encounter that saw Zack Feinberg taking a different route home riding his bike one day and happened upon David Shaw singing and playing guitar on his front porch the two struck up a conversation and met later that same day to jam. Since that time The Revivalists have self-released The Revivalists EP in 2008 this album was named one of the best albums of 2008 by WWOZ New Orleans DJ Sherwood Collins and featured five tracks. In 2010 the band released Vital Signs another self-released work this one was produced by Grammy-award-winning engineer Chris Finney and featured 12 tracks, the most recent work “City of Sound” was re-released by Wind-Up Records in 2014 with a second disk that contains over an hour of live tracks. City of Sound veers folk, pop and some sensational soulful songs it is an outstanding work. Members comprising the 7-piece band include: Ed Williams (Pedal Steel Guitar), David Shaw (Vocals), Zack Feinberb (Guitar), Rob Ingraham (Saxophone), George Gekas (Bass), Andrew Capanelli (Drums), and Michael Giradot (Keys/Trumpet). David Fricke of Rolling Stone described them as “a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee.” The band’s live shows are entertaining and fun, the interaction between the guys in constant and flowing and the harmony of the band is perfect. The Revivalists are a must see!
