Featured Artist: The Revivalists

Mountain Jam newcomers The Revivalists, with their N’Awlins roots, churn out the kind of funky rock that’s hip enough to get you moving, but so loaded with soul you can’t help but ease back and let the weight of the music roll over you.

Frontman David Shaw delivers his lyrics in such a way that, eyes closed, you’d swear he was a worn Southern street singer crooning the blues on his front porch — or, at the very least, some kind of new-age Dr. John. (Coincidentally, crooning on his front porch is exactly how the band’s founder and guitarist Zack Feinberg discovered him in 2007; within a few years, they were opening for the legendary Night Tripper himself, go figure.)

Shaw’s bellows are not without a liveliness, however, that perfectly complements the group’s adventurous riffs (handled by aforementioned axeman Feinberg, along with Ed Williams on the pedal steel guitar), clever bass (George Gekas), steady sax (Rob Ingraham), and hearty rat-a-tat-tat (band co-founder Andrew Campanelli). Multi-instrumentalist Michael Girardot rounds out the seven-member crew with funky fingerwork on the keys.

Regulars on the festival circuit, the Revivalists have performed with the likes of JJ Grey and Mofro and Trombone Shorty. Their debut EP — guided by Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Chris Finney — earned them editor’s picks in several categories on Listen to their newest album, last year’s City of Sound, here.

Below, check out the Revivalists at the 2012 Brooklyn Bowl during their cover of Eminem’s “Forgot About Dre.” Call us crazy, but perhaps they’ll reprise their sit-in with Jam-daddy himself, Warren Haynes, at this year’s Jam? (Nudge nudge, Warren…)
