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 Revivalto a nationally touring, mainstage-ready band.
 
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…”.
