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.
