The Revivalists are an American rock/soul band formed in New Orleans in 2007.
The Revivalists began when guitarist Zack Feinberg met frontman David Shaw. Shaw fatefully encountered Feinberg
when he happened to be riding his bike. Feinberg, taking a different route than usual, found himself
riding past Shaw who was singing a song called "Purple Heart" on his front porch.
The two struck up a conversation and got together later that day to play music.
The duo began playing with Andrew Campanelli, a drummer Feinberg had met at Tipitina's.
Within a week, the earliest version of the band played their first show at Checkpoint
Charlie's Laundromat/Bar on Esplanade Avenue. By the time they got a chance to play at
Tipitina's a few weeks later, the name "The Revivalists" appeared on the bill for the first time.
