If you’re looking for an exciting act with unparalleled energy—an act that is not just "going through the motions" but feels genuine joy and love when entertaining and playing music—look no further. Revival is a versatile and dynamic act, specializing in the soul of Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin, the feel-good Motown of Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, Classic Rock from Billy Joel to the Beatles to the Stones, and New Orleans party music that comes complete with parades.

Revival is not your typical wedding band. These musicians are the cream of the crop from the NYC area, not washed-up bored-looking dudes who had to settle for weddings. Attention to detail, an incredible song list that spans decades of great music, high energy, and a state of the art sound system (with multiple crew members dedicated ONLY to making it sound amazing) are just some of the things that separate them from all others—and the difference is huge!

Happy Birthday - Traditional (or N’awlins version) Hava Nagila/The Hora - Traditional  
I don’t how you guys do it but what you do is magic. Thanks for giving us memories that will last for the rest of our lives. From the second line parade into the tent to the last encore your energy, connection with the guests and sheer professionalism blew us all away. So many people told me it was the best wedding they ever attended! ”
- Brian Boyle (Father of the Bride), Staten Island, NY
If the LRO is available on your wedding date, stop your search. If they aren't available, change your wedding date! I can't possibly endorse something as highly as I endorse this band for your wedding. They were extremely professional in catering to our requests and just straight KILLED the performance… If you're even remotely hesitant in hiring these guys, please ask for my number…”
- Michelle Boniface & Harry St. John, Darlington, MD
This band is extraordinary. Here are some of the reasons why they are the best you will find: 1. They love playing weddings. Not true for a surprising number of wedding bands. 2. They play their own gigs with their own music under a different name. That means they're finishing each other's musical sentences and they're always in fighting shape as a band. 3. The sound gear they bring is way beyond what you've seen. 4. Their song list is great… their arrangements are intricately charted and rehearsed. 5. Communication leading up to the wedding was diligent and thoughtful. They were a huge influence on the feel of the whole thing, the single most important component of the reception, by far. Everyone loved them and many said they were the best they'd heard. How emphatic can I be? How about this: don't make the mistake of choosing another band.”
- Ben Grant & Sarah Curtis, Rye, NY
Guests have not stopped talking about how awesome you guys were. From my 85 year old grandfather to my 15 year old sister no one left the dance floor while you guys were on stage. Not only were we impressed with the music, but you guys were always responsive, on time and very accommodating no matter what we wanted...”
- Cyndi & Justin Holohan, Stowe, VT
LRO made our wedding day absolutely perfect beyond our wildest dreams. Regardless of age, musical taste, or dancing skills, every person was up out of their seat dancing all night long. David went above and beyond from beginning to end. Whether it was working on the set list, learning songs, being prompt and professional, or putting on the best show I have ever seen, wedding or not, they were world class through and through...They made every step of the process easy, fun, and seamless..”
- Sarah & Michael Hund, Bristol, RI
Musically they blew us all away! The dance floor was never empty while they were playing. Many band members joined us on the dance floor with their instruments at several points during the party which was lots of fun. And they even recorded the set and sent us the MP3s via dropbox a month later. How cool is that?! ”
- Kate Houlihan & Chad White, Amenia, NY
