There's a fine line between a jam band and a band that jams. New Orleans' the Revivalists fall into the latter category. The band seamlessly mixes indie, alt-country, soul and everything in between effortlessly. Hearty pedal steel riffs and gentle sax-play weave in-between lovelorn lyrics that echo the blues.
The Revivalists know how to infect a live venue with a sense of purpose and energy. Their performances wrap feel-good, danceable melodies around funky, shape-shifting jams as energetic fans latch on and get down to their grooves.
This band has an innate talent for finding the balance in the tricky dichotomy of a hooky chorus and an indulgent jam. The overall effect is inspiring, and, most importantly, never boring.
