Boston’s House of Blues was packed on January 13th with fans of all ages. Generally speaking genres of music/bands have an age group, or personalities they really vibe with and cater to. The Revivalists music is something that not only caters but is received by all ages, sexes and races. It was truly spectacular to see all different people unite under music.
As an eight piece rock band, The Revivalists are something truly original. From Steel guitars to a saxophone all the way to two drum sets. This symphony of sound makes something truly magical and moving.
The energy front man David Shaw brings makes it so you can’t help but dance along and let loose. He had a connection with the crowd that was truly genuine. David Shaw really turned on his groove on the third song, “ You and I”. You felt the energy of this song ripple through the crowd. Shaw spent a majority of their performance on the catwalk interacting with the crowd and really making them a part of the show.
When not on the catwalk, David Shaw also showed of his electric and acoustic guitar skills with songs like “Catching Fireflies” and “Oh No”. Ed Williams and George Gekas held down guitar and bass throughout the entire night, all while bringing energy, and genuine happiness. Rob Ingraham was on saxophone and brought some serious energy jumping around the stage and getting the crowd going. Andrew Campanelli and Paulet "PJ" Howard held down the rhythm section flawlessly throughout the night.
