"9 years, 3 genres, and 4 records into it, Holy Ghost Tent Revival''s sound has emerged as something different than anyone might have expected. The music, now filled with 3 and 4-part harmonies reminiscent of the Beatles in one section and Motown in the next. The drums, bass, and keys, now centered on a Stax-like groove, and the 3 electric guitars now tastefully breathe dynamics into each song. All-the-while, the organic horns don''t dominate but compliment, like the old Memphis soul horns or The Band in The Last Waltz.

Forming in a dorm room in 2007, the band chose its name after a picture scrolled across a computer screen just a simple sign with the words Holy Ghost Tent Revival written on it. Someone saw the picture, shouted out those words and there was no going back. Birthed of a banjo-driven fireball of ragtime/swing energy, Holy Ghost Tent Revival''s roots were formed by getting people moving on a dance floor. With their latest EP release, Summer Jelly, HGTR proved to be advancing and adding a new depth to their sound, and the fans were digging it.

Now laced with female vocals, 4 part harmonies, synths, and a second trumpet, HGTR is marrying genres in a way that NPR describes as that of a soul-rock horn band that recalls 60s and 70s classic-rock influences such as The Band and The Flying Burrito Brothers?. This new sound has inspired amazing acts like Lake Street Dive, Dr. Dog, Shovels and Rope, and Robert Randolph & the Family Band to share their stage with them and in turn has elevated Holy Ghost Tent Revival to a nationally touring, mainstage-ready band."
