The Revivalists
The Revivalists
Since forming in 2007, The Revivalists have rightfully earned their reputation as the next breakout band from the music capital of New Orleans. The group's blend of soulful, syncopated rock and earnest songwriting comes to life through a meticulously crafted and ever-evolving live performance. In 2011 they were named Best Emerging Artist at Gambit Magazine's Big Easy Awards, and were nominated for Best Rock Act in 2012.

With the seed being planted during jam sessions at Tipitina's Sunday Music Workshops, where drummer Andrew Campanelli and guitarist Zack Feinberg first met, the band found its frontman by pure luck when Feinberg heard David Shaw singing on his Birch Street porch. Fueling the rhythm section, Campanelli's college friend, George Gekas, became the bassist. Feinberg later invited saxophonist Rob Ingraham, the two realizing their incontestable dynamic while taking music classes at Tulane University. After a fortuitous meeting at French Quarter Fest, Ed Williams joined on the pedal steel guitar. The newest addition to The Revivalists' cross-generational rocking goodness comes from multi-instrumentalist Michael Girardot. Having played sporadically with the band since 2009, he has grown into an integral part of their live show.

The Revivalists incessantly tour on the national level, often times supporting giants like Rebirth Brass Band and Galactic. They're also proud to have opened for notable acts JJ Grey & Mofro, Dr. John, and Trombone Shorty. Additionally, they have established themselves as an engaging festival act, gaining notoriety at CMJ (NYC), DeLuna Fest (Florida), Voodoo Music Fest (New Orleans), Hangout Music Festival (Gulf Shores, AL), The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage Series (Washington, DC) and the legendary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. At the latter they grabbed the attention of Rolling Stone Senior Editor, David Fricke, who later called their performance, "a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee."
Tyler Boone Band
Tyler Boone Band
Challenge: Find a more genuine, harder working musician than Tyler Boone. Actually, just go ahead and give up because it is not going to happen. Growing up in the Lowcountry, Boone first became enamored with the subculture of Charleston's punk/metal scene, before eventually expanding his musical palette to include the blues/pop-laced influences that are sprinkled throughout his more recent releases.

Recently signing with Coast Records for his latest release "Familiar Faces" (May 20th, 2014) have been touring up and down the East and West Coast non-stop in support for this record. Featuring such artists as Mark Bryan from Hootie & the Blowfish as a vocalists and mandolinist.

Opening up for such acts as Platinum record selling artist Edwin McCain and Zach Myers from Shinedown. Grammy award winning artist such as Christopher Cross, Hootie and the Blowfish, Mark Bryan, American Idol Winner Lee DeWyze, American Idol Finalist Elise Testone, Band of Horses, Old Crow Medicine Show, Manchester Orchestra, The Revivalists, Minus the Bear, The Avett Brothers, I-Nine, Ben Rector, Sol Driven Train, Alpha Rev, Ghost Owl and even The Dirty Guv'nah's, Boone is well on his way to becoming a major act himself.

Tyler has been nominated as Singer of the Year, Singer/Songwriter of the Year & Song of the Year "Home" in the Charleston City Paper Music Awards 2013
