Coming to HBG: Alt rockers The Revivalists

The Revivalists

Another major musical act will land in Harrisburg soon, as the Revivalists have an early spring date set at The Forum.

Harrisburg University (HU) today announced that the New Orleans-based eight-piece bluesy rock band will play in the beautifully restored theater in March, part of a major East Coast and Midwestern tour.

Fronted by singer and guitarist David Shaw, the Revivalists were formed in 2007, soon gaining a reputation for powerful songs with sharp hooks that combine contemporary sounds with guitar- and brass-based rock reminiscent of the 1970s and ‘80s.

The band’s most recent single, “All My Friends,” from their 2018 album, “Take Good Care,” reached No. 1 on the adult alternative chart. In 2016, a previous single, “Wish I Knew You,” also reached the top spot on that Billboard chart.

In addition to Shaw, the band consists of Zack Feinberg [guitar], Andrew Campanelli [drums], George Gekas [bass], Ed Williams [pedal steel guitar], Rob Ingraham [saxophone], Michael Girardot [keyboard, trumpet] and PJ Howard [drums, percussion].

The HU concert series increasingly has attracted major acts to Harrisburg. On Nov. 30, the globally acclaimed acoustic duo, Rodrigo y Gabriella, will play the Forum, and, on Dec. 20, roots icon Jason Isbell will stop by for a concert.

The Revivalists will play March 4 at the Forum Auditorium, 500 Walnut St., Harrisburg. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. For more information and tickets, visit the concert series’ website.
