The Revivalists (#601H) Duration: 56:13 STEREO TVPG

This alt-rock jam band surged out of Bayou Country in 2007, led by the intoxicating David Shaw and were named by Rolling Stonemagazine as one of 2016's "10 Bands You Need to Know." Shaw's searing vocals together with Zack Feinberg on guitar, Andrew Campanelli on drums, Ed Williams on pedal steel guitar, George Gekas on bass, Rob Ingraham on saxophone, and Michael Girardot on keyboards and trumpet energize fans with their eclectic Southern mix of jazz-funk grooves, blues-rock grit, and warm melodies on "Soulfight" (featured on the TV series NCIS: New Orleans), their No. 1 radio hit "Wish I Knew You" and more.

Snarky Puppy (#603H) Duration: 57:24 STEREO TVPG

Bassist and composer Michael League's improvisational pop musician collective defies categorization but never disappoints an audience, as eight of its members bring an evening of music exploration and massive jams to Infinity Hall Live. From fan favorites like "Shofukan" to "Grown Folks" from their latest Grammy-winning album Culcha Vulcha, the performance provides viewers with an immersive experience enhanced by handheld cameras on the stage capturing the woo hoo-worthy solos of this self-described "pop band without vocals."

Blind Pilot (#605H) Duration: 57:55 STEREO TVPG

A staple of TV soundtracks, the six-piece indie band Blind Pilot, showcases their hyper individualistic approach and musicianship in an intimate concert with songs including "Half Moon," "Three Rounds and a Sound," and "Oviedo." The Portland, Oregonians' refreshingly modern take, with front man Israel Nebeker, debuted with a bicycle tour in support of their first album. Blind Pilot brings upright bass, banjo, dulcimer, vibraphone, and trumpet together with traditional drums and keyboards for a unique contemporary sound.
