Righteous Revival

RIGHTEOUS REVIVAL is a group of musicians that first played together over 40 years ago.  They reunited in 2014 to play original Christian music.

Their approach is unique.

They took the blues/rock genre they cut their teeth on in the 1970’s and incorporated it into the songs they now perform.  The result: a fusion of contemporary Christian music and “classic rock”.

They have been nominated for “Group of the Year” by the prestigious American Christian Music Association.  Their song, “Jesus Satisfies”,  has also been nominated as “Song of the Year” by the Association.

They also perform southern gospel favorites and covers of songs by well-known contemporary Christian artists.

They will be appearing at the Chicken Festival in London, Kentucky on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 7:45 p.m.

Their newest extended play CD is now available for sale.  Anyone interested in purchasing a copy can leave a message on the band’s Facebook page.  Other single songs are on sale online at bandcamp.com.  Just search for “Righteous Revival”.  Copies of their CD will also be available for sale following their Chicken Festival performance.

David Adams

David’s love for music started when he was a youngster and his passion for it is displayed every time he performs. When David is not on stage he serves as Executive and Worship Pastor for Ignite Church in Richmond and works for Forcht Bank. David believes that basically everyone has one thing in common and that’s music. Music changes people and has an effect on them and that effect is what draws out passion in his music.
