This past weekend my friends and I ventured from our cozy mountain house into the snow to see a show at Three 20 South. I had never heard of the band and after 2 long days of skiing, I didn’t think I could make it to the show. But we rallied!
Part of my not wanting to go was the fear that the band would totally suck. But I was soooo wrong. The Revivalist blew me and my friends away. First, their lead guitarist plays like he has listened to the Alman Brothers his entire life. He even teased Blue Sky, my all time favorite song. Second, they have a great New Orleans funk sound, mixed with southern rock and a little bit of Pgroove. Third, they had 2 awesome covers. “Whipping Post” which had me up front dancing and going crazy and their encore “Forgot about Dre” sent everyone into a tizzy especially one of my girlfriends who loves rap music. When we spoke to the guitarist after the show she told him to just do rap covers. Lastly each member is incredibly talented. That talented is show cased in every song, everyone has a solo, everyone changes sounds and instruments and is allowed to go crazy on stage, giving them an awesome stage presence. All in all the show was great and they now have 9 new fans in DC and 1 in Colorado.
Only one request- When I asked for the soundboard they said yall weren’t recording the show! Shame on you, record all your shows! K? Thanks. I would also love to know the set list too.
Pgroove + Dave + Allman Brothers + Bob Schnider + a steal guitar and a sax = Revivalist
Listen on Spotify or buy their album now on itunes. My Favs are “When Im Able” and “Masquerade”
They are on tour right now and hitting all the Major Music Festivals!
