On Saturday, The Revivalists performed their set on the main stage during The Peach Music Festival at Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pa. The performance included a surprise sit-in when the band was joined by Brandon “Taz” Niederauer on the seminal track “Wish I Knew You.” Watch the fan-shot video below.
The single-set performance got underway with “Criminal” off their 2012 album, City of Sound. Then, David Shaw led the group through 2015’s “It Was a Sin” before working through “You and I.” “Oh No” came next, ahead of “Concrete (Fish Out of Water)” and “Fade Away.”
The band continued their set with 2010’s “Catching Fireflies,” which appeared on their self-released studio album, Vital Signs. Next, they jumped into a tune from 2018’s Take Good Care and landed on “Celebration.”
For the next number, the band welcomed Niederauer to the stage to lend his talent to The Revivalists’ chart-topping hit, “Wish I Knew You.” The member of Trouble No More had previously played with the band prior to their Peach Music Festival sit-in, and notably during a show at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl in 2016, when the young guitarist joined in during “Forgot About Dre.” Saturday’s guest appearance included a tight guitar solo played by Niederauer.
After their guest left the stage, the single set performance continued with a take on “Don’t Look Back” ahead of the set closer, a high-energy take of The Who’s 1971 track, “Baba O’Reily.” Following Saturday’s show, the band will head to Canada for a handful of performances before making their way to the West Coast.
