One of Merriam-Webster’s definitions for “revival” reads, “the growth of something or an increase in the activity of something after a long period of no growth or activity.”
After a long winter of no activity and record-breaking subzero temperatures, we’re about to get an infiltration of warmth via the funky tunes of The Revivalists this Friday at Concord Music Hall. It’s your chance to win a pair of tickets, TVD readers!
The Revivalists are a septet of super talented musicians and friends who formed their group in 2007. They infuse their New Orleans inspired sound with a blend of traditional rock n’roll, horns, and exceptionally soulful vocals. Their energetic live shows will get your hips grinding and your fists pumping. This show will surely get you out of that lazy no-dancing rut you know you’ve been stuck in. Plus, who doesn’t love a sax solo, am I right?
Aside from their spirited live shows, what is great about The Revivalists is that they just go with their gut. They aren’t concerned with emulating a particular sound or hitting on a specific message through their lyrics. They write their songs organically and feel out what’s best for them, which makes them even more appealing to see live.
The Revivalists have just put out a re-release of their 2012 album City of Sound through Wind Up Records, their new label. The re-release is a two-disc set and includes eight live bonus tracks from sold out shows from Fall ’13.
