Show Review: The Revivalists 8.22.14 Music Farm Charleston

This past Friday night show was one no one should have missed! New Orleans rock group, The Revivalist, lured many to Music Farm with their self-proclaimed performance of “danceable rock”. Carrying into the early hours of Saturday morning, the show was one non-stop hit after another and the crowd was more than happy to keep up. The Revivalist are known to put on an amazing performance, with songs teetering on heavy rock, smooth acoustic, and borderline electronic rock. The band does not limit itself to one particular sound, which accompanies their phenomenal gift of appealing to such a variety of individuals.

 

Opening the show for The Revivalist was none other than local artist Tyler Boone followed by The Black Cadillacs. Tyler Boone, a new and upcoming artist started the show promoting music from his newly released album “Familiar Faces”. The Black Cadillacs, a blues-based indie rock group from Knoxville, shortly took to the stage after Tyler Boone. The crowd quickly became absorbed by their performance; the perfect act to keep spirit’s up and the audience cheering. The Music Farm fans certainly hope to see these faces again soon!

Show Review: Donavon Frankenreiter

Surfer rock musician, Donavon Frankenreiter, put on a stunning performance at Charleston’s Music Farm this past Wednesday evening. Both Donavon and his opening performer, Makua Rothman, soothed the crowd with their folk-infused tunes and upbeat vibes. Donavon’s performance displayed thick vocals and masterful guitar work, which allowed the show to be enjoyed by those of all ages. Many his songs are about his wife and children, which shines through his stage presence. It was hard not to sing and dance along with songs like “Call me Poppa” and “Start Livin”. He has left all of us here in Charleston looking forward to seeing him again.

Dark Star Orchestra Show Review

IMG_3627 IMG_7738

Most would hesitate at the thought of someone covering the songs of rock legends., with few cover bands able to perform closely to the original music. Dark Star Orchestra definitely proved themselves to be one of the few.  Their renditions of the Grateful Dead’s music was done in a way that made one feel as if they were just feet away watching the late Jerry Garcia sing lyrics so many of us have fallen in love with and guitar riffs that will forever stick out in our minds.  Judging by the crowd dancing and singing along to every song at the Music Farm last night, Dark Star Orchestra is definitely one you do not want to miss next time they are in town.
