The Revivalists will be returning to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO for a headlining performance at the storied venue on September 21st. However, the celebration will begin the Thursday before on September 19th at Denver’s Cervantes’ Other Side with an Official Red Rocks Pre-Party version of Live For Live Music‘s The Funk Sessions featuring several members of the band and additional guests (purchase tickets here).
The Revivalists bassist George Gekas will lead this rendition of The Funk Sessions along with bandmates Ed Williams (pedal steel), Zack Feinberg (guitar), Rob Ingraham (saxophone), and Michael Girardot (keys/trumpet). Joining the group will be drummer Alvin Ford Jr. (Pretty Lights Live Band) and keyboardist Todd Stoops (RAQ).
The New Orleans-based rockers have been hitting the road hard since their inception back in 2007. With the release of the Billboard #1 hit single “Wish I Knew You” in 2016 from the album Men Amongst Mountains (produced by Galactic saxophonist Ben Ellman), their career hit the stratosphere with no ceiling in sight. Just last month, the group even opened for The Rolling Stones in Jacksonville, FL.
As is always the case with The Funk Sessions, you never know who is around and will come down to sit in. This show has the makings of a very special evening, and is surely not to be missed.
In the meantime, those with a hankering for the funk can still grab tickets to the special August edition of The Funk Sessions featuring George Porter Jr. (The Meters) and Robert Walter (Mike Gordon, 20th Congress, Greyboy Allstars) alongside members of Turkuaz and The Motet on Friday, August 30th. Taking place following Phish‘s first of three performances at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, this special late-night jam is appropriately dubbed “The Phunk Sessions.” Grab your tickets for that show here.
