New Orleans born The Revivalists brought their blend of funk, soul and rock to Roswell Riverside Sounds. The 7-piece band consists of 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).
The band was formed by a chance meeting of David Shaw and Zack Feinberg. David was on his porch on Birch Street in New Orleans playing acoustic car and singing an original song called “Purple Heart.” The two struck up a conversation. From this first conversation in August 2007 a friendship blossomed and eventually The Revivalists were formed.
Once the sun set, lead singer David Shaw thrilled the ladies with this energetic topless performance. This crowd pleasing energy had the usually casual suburban crowd packed in to the stage, dancing and pulsating to the sounds of Purple Heart, Shot of Tears and others. The Revivalists performed songs from their 2010 album Vital Signs and their 2008 self titled EP, The Revivalists.
