The value of a robust local music scene towards building a vibrant local community cannot be measured in numbers alone. Music inspires, comforts, creates a pleasant atmosphere and often informs us. There is also a significant positive impact to the local economy when local venues regularly hire local musicians.

¡Revíva! has made a name for themselves in the Albuquerque music scene through their inspiring lyrics, unique sound, and positive vibes. Forming in the fall of 2009, they have turned ears with their original Burqueño/Reggae/Rock rhythm and lyrics, both in English and Spanish that touch the soul. Keep pace with ¡Revíva! click here!
Consisting of seven members; Glenn “Buddha” Benavidez (Bass), Cody Jones (Percussion), Danny “The Harp” Garcia (Keys/Harmonica), Ragon Espinosa (Drums)Brian Shonerd (Keys), Jerel Garcia (Guitar) and Chris Brennan (Vocals/Song writer). They started performing at small local venues for friends and family, but have quickly staked their claim as one of New Mexico’s premier bands. They have played at venues such as Sunshine Theater and Hard Rock Pavilion and are a mainstay at the Launchpad and local pubs. Reviva has opened for the likes of The Wailers, Ozomatli, The Expendables, Fishbone, Tribal Seeds and The Dirty Heads. One of their biggest achievements so far was being voted to play main stage at Edgefest 2012; beating out over 100 bands for the honor. This accomplishment was really a testament to the dedicated fan base Reviva has formed in their time as a band.
¡Revíva!‘s mission as a band is to revive themselves and others through the healing power of music and to give back and help those in the community. They aim to spread positivity and inspire change in the way people think and act. Perhaps the greatest act of selflessness is evident in the actions of lead singer Chris Brennan, who dedicated two and a half years of his life to join the Peace Corps.
