The Revivalists On World Cafe
The Revivalists' name can be interpreted a couple ways: Yes, the band keeps older forms of music like blues and R&B alive, but its spirited performance also recalls a gospel revival.
It's no surprise that the group came together in New Orleans. The Revivalists' members got together in 2007 and have played 150 dates a year ever since. Last year brought a reissue of their second album, City Of Sound, which they'd put out themselves in 2012. The reissue includes an extra live disc.
