Sons of the Soul Revivers

Aug 13, Sunday - 12pm Noon
Blues/Big Easy Stage

Descendents of the group the Soul Revivers, Sons of the Soul Revivers boast an unmatched blend of family harmony built from more than 20 years of singing together. These Bay Area natives have been featured alongside some of the brightest names in gospel.

They’ve won Best Quartet by the Bay Area Gospel Academy Awards Association six times, and have performed such leading gospel figures as the Canton Spirituals, the Mighty Clouds of Joy, the Jackson Southernaires, the Gospel Keynotes, the Soul Stirrets, Lee Williams, and Keith Wonderboy Johnson.

In 1989 they recorded their first album, It Should’ve Been Me, which led them on their first promotional tour throughout Tennessee, Ohio and Indiana. In 1992, they were featured on the first Bay Area taping of The Bobby Jones Gospel Hour. During the winter of 1997, the Sons completed their first European tour. The following year, the Sons released their first live recording, Help Me Lift His Holy Name! They followed it up in 2001 with I’m a New Creature, recorded at the Center for Creative Arts in Fairfield, CA. The album was re-released in 2006 with a companion DVD.

In January 2008, the Sons released Golden Nuggets, which continues to reflect the Sons’ unique blend of family harmony as they share songs that will have listeners focused on Jesus, the Cross, and Heaven. The Sons of the Soul Revivers are committed to being His servants, ministering in music and pressing on to lift up the name of Jesus.
