It’s been nearly seven years since Chuck Ragan and his camaraderie of like-minded musicians celebrated his much-adored and lauded REVIVAL TOUR which merged the punk, alternative, and folk worlds. So it is with excitement and anticipation that Chuck Ragan and Revival Tour alums Dan Andriano (Alkaline Trio) and Dave Hause (The Loved Ones) are getting together to put on AN EVENING OF REVIVAL, a one-time “revival” of sorts of the much-missed tour. Set for Sunday, July 7that Solana Beach, CA’s Belly Up (143 S Cedros Ave, Solana Beach, CA 92075), it proves to be one of the must-attend shows of the season, if not year.
“Revival or, at least as we know it, has always been an inspiring way to play and hear music,” reminisces Chuck about the musical and cultural collaborative phenomenon that he helped create. “It’s where you’ll see songwriters joining forces and collaborating more than anywhere else. It simply brings all people together.”
Proceeds gathered from An Evening of Revival will be donated to Cast Hope, the 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization benefiting the youth of California and Western Nevada through free fly fishing programs. “Both Dan and Dave have been supporters of Cast Hope,” adds Chuck, who is a consummate fly fisherman himself. “They believe in the cause and they believe in the kids, and we’re more than willing to donate our time and talents for it… not to mention their dear friends that I’ve enjoyed sharing the stage with for years.”
