The Revivalists… Amen, I’m a believer (

I had the opportunity to meet and see an amazing group of cats do their thing this past weekend at Tractor.

I have to say it is very cool to listen to a record all the way through (twice) and be totally moved and delighted. It was even cooler to jump in my rig and drive down to Ballard a few hours later to hang out and interview the very musicians that made the record.

They performed  a solid and moving set. This band is great on record but live is where one really gets to experience The Revivalists

You won’t meet a nicer group of guys with a ton of talent. They will be my guests on a upcoming episode of SMI Radio in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, you can check out my show recap by clicking the below link. Also, you can  listen to their music at:
