The Revivalists, Soul Track Mind

Friday, Jan 31 9:00p
The formation of The Revivalists was all about chance, but everything since then has been a combination of hard work, awesome music, and friendship. The septet has been playing nonstop since 2007, crafting a genre-hopping sound that rounds out traditional rock instrumentation with horns and pedal steel guitar and mixes the divergent backgrounds of its individual members with the humid, funky undercurrents of the band’s New Orleans home.

2013/14 Friday Intimate Series

Friday, Jan 31 7:00p
Intimate Concerts take place in a stylish home—the preferred up-close and personal setting for chamber music— the ‘original party music’ . Each concert is followed by a scrumptious reception along with an exclusive ‘back-stage-pass’ accessibility to the artists. The scene is festive and fun, and the music is to die for. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry… and we’ll do it all together. Very close together.
