Relix dubbed them 'Summer Stars' and Michael Bialias profiled their festival run for the Huffington Post and No Depression.David Fricke of Rolling Stone calls their show, “A Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee” and The Horn in Austin proclaims, “Between frontman David Shaw's infectious vocals and frontman antics, a powerful horn section, and the uniquely atypical presence of a pedal steel guitar, The Revivalists are delivering a freshly interesting sound to increasing audiences around the country.” Jessica Novack of the Syracuse New Times agrees, “For The Revivalists, it seems to be one part organic impulses and one part meaning it with every bit of every spontaneous performance that makes their blend of New Orleans-infused funk, rock and soul work.”Grab a free download of "Criminal," from City of Sound, over at Diffuser and be sure to check out the Daytrotter session.
