The Revivalists aren’t a traditional New Orleans group. While they certainly incorporate brass instruments in the true spirit of NOLA, this seven-piece inches closer to indie rock than most groups out of The Crescent City, and David Shaw’s soulful vocals pair well with Ed Williams’ pedal steel guitar for a Southern blues feel.
It’s not easy to pin down The Revivalists’ sound to any one genre, and they are a live act that is more than worthy of your ears and eyes. The Independent hosted the fast-rising group last Saturday, and Marc Fong captured plenty of breathtaking moments.
