To band—which features David Shaw, Rob Ingraham, Ed Williams, Andrew Campanelli, Zack Feinberg and Michael Girardot of The Revivalists, Khris Royal of Rebelution and Dark Matter and Eric Vogel of Nigel Hall Band and Big Sam’s Funky Nation—is being billed as the New Orleans Jam. The group will play two gigs at the end of September, with one show at Pandora’s in Grayton Beach, FL on Saturday, September 28 and another show at the Funky Blues Shack in Destin, FL on Sunday, September 29.

The concerts will be a part of the 30A Throwdown, which is taking place in the area that weekend. The event also features a cookoff, tournament and, as previously reported, another show from New Orleans favorites The Soul Rebels and Good Enough For Good Times on Friday, September 27.

This is super exciting, super good news! My wife and I had heard a song or to by The Revivalists on Sirius radio but weren’t real familiar with them. We were in the incredible city of New Orleans to see Eric Clapton and spend a few days soaking up as much NOLA as possible. The Clapton show ended early enough that we decided to see what was going on at Tipitina’s and man did we hit the jackpot! Gallactic was hosting a benefit for a displaced musician and the stage was packed with talent. That was the night my wife realized her favorite Galactic song was sung by David Shaw of The Revivalists and Maggie Koerner. That was also the night we discovered The Revivalist and the incredible vocals of Mr. Shaw! It only took a few verses of “Hey Na” and we would be forever hooked! We started searching for the next show that was close and found out The Revivalists and Galactic were playing at the Wanee festival, we made haste to get our tickets and arrange child care!! Needless to say we were not disappointed! The Revivalists were amazing. The vocals of Shaw, Mr. Campanelli banging out the beat, Ed making his slide scream and dance, Zack rip licks left and right, George Gekas laying down smooth effortless bass and Rob’s saxophone singing sexy tenors for our ears made our Friday! That night it rained and our tent flooded and now we are expecting our 3rd child!! If these guys come anywhere near you, you must go hear them. They are what music is all about and I thank them for that. Can’t wait for the 2 shows listed above as this is were we live!! #endlessjams
