The Revivalists, the sensational alternative rock artists of New Orleans bring their signature sounds to the Aragon Ballroom.
The band was formed in New Orleans in 2007 and consists of Ed Williams, David Shaw, Zack Feinberg, Rob Ingraham, George Gekas, Andrew Campanelli and Michael Girardot. The story goes that Zack was riding a bike and decided to take a different route than usual. He was on David’s porch where David was singing and the couple struck up a conversation. They met later that day to perform, and within a week the band’s first version began performing publicly.
They released their self-titled debut EP in 2008 and followed it with a standalone release which was produced by Grammy Award-winning engineer Chris Finney. Their latest album was released on July 17th of last year and led Rolling Stone magazine to include them on their “10 Bands You Need To Know: March 2016” list. Zack says of the album title: “We started to end up on festival bills with our idols and in front of big crowds. We think: “We are among these giants, but we are defending ourselves”. We feel like we are standing up and taking on the challenge just by being who we are as revivalists. “
