- Event Details
The Joe Krown Trio is a killer combination of three legendary New Orleansmusicians who have been playing together since 2007. Joe Krown Trio brings the soulful vocals of Walter with the big sound of the Hammond B-3 (which Joe also plays all of the bass parts on the B-3) and the masterful drumming skills of Funky Meters drummer Russell Batiste Jr. Three albums later and winner of the 2009 Big Easy Award for “Best Rhythm and Blues Band” they deliver a high energy live music performance.
Since forming in 2007, The Revivalists have rightfully earned their reputation as the next breakout band from the music capital of New Orleans. The group's blend of soulful, syncopated rock and earnest songwriting comes to life through a meticulously crafted and ever-evolving live performance. In 2011 they were named Best Emerging Artist at Gambit Magazine's Big Easy Awards, and were nominated for Best Rock Act in 2012.
The Revivalists incessantly tour on the national level, often times supporting giants like Rebirth Brass Band and Galactic. They're also proud to have opened for notable acts JJ Grey & Mofro, Dr. John, and Trombone Shorty. Additionally, they have established themselves as an engaging festival act, gaining notoriety at CMJ (NYC), DeLuna Fest (Florida), Hangout Music Festival (Gulf Shores, AL), The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage Series (Washington, DC) and the legendary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. At the latter they grabbed the attention of Rolling Stone Senior Editor, David Fricke, who later called their performance, "a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee."
Uncle Bruno: "Uncle Bruno owes a heavy debt to New Orleans funk and jammers Galactic, but the local (group)'s roots extend deeper, to the bands of jazz fusion pioneers like Billy Cobham and Herbie Hancock" ------ Jim Caligiuri, Austin Chronicle
