Last night (Wednesday, February 8th) the New Orleans-based jam-band The Revivalists brought their electrifying live performance to Los Angeles, with a show at Hollywood’s Fonda Theatre.
The seven-piece band rocked the venue with their Southern mix of jazz-funk grooves, blues rock grit, and warm melodies.
This was part of their Still Feeling Good From Yesterday U.S. headlining tour. In the past year the band has performed on Conan, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and TODAY as Elvis Duran’s Artist of The Month with Kathie Lee and Hoda.
The members of The Revivalists include Ed Williams (pedal steel guitar), David Shaw (vocals), Zack Feinberg (guitar), Rob Ingraham (saxophone), George Gekas (bass), Andrew Campanelli (drums) and Michael Girardot (keys & trumpet). Each of them are incredible musicians and very impressively showcased their skills last night.
For roughly an hour and a half, the band played songs from their entire catalogue. The crowd especially enjoyed when they performed songs of their 2015 collection, “Men Amongst Mountains.” Their set included “Bulletproof,” “Monster,” “Move On,” “Catching Fireflies” and their smash hit “I Wish I Knew You.”
Before singing their anthemic “Keep Going,” The Revivalists front-man David Shaw briefly mentioned the current political climate.
“I know there’s a lot going on right but you know what we are going to do…. We are just going to keep on.”
The show included lots of opportunities for sing-alongs and at one point, front-man, David, gave the mic to a few eager concert-goers in the front to sing the chorus.
The Revivalists brought such a lively and happy energy to the Fonda. The audience made up all ages were incredibly happy to be out late enjoying music on a Wednesday night and kicking up their heels.
