  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) November 08, 2014 - ABOUT PREACHERMANN AND THE REVIVAL
    Preachermann and The Revival is a ten member New York based band that blends rock, gospel and funk to create an original and engaging sound that Preachermann has dubbed ATOMIC SOUL. In addition to Preachermann's birthday, PATR will be celebrating the band's accomplishments from the past two years, including two residencies at Shrine World Music Venue, Williamsburg Music Center, a successful fundraiser at The Cutting Room, The Greene Space and Tammany Hall in New York City. Most recently, the band earned a spot representing Manhattan in the semi-finals for the annual Battle of The Boroughs at The Greene Space. The band's live performances combine the expansiveness of stadium rock with the visceral effects of juke joint blues sessions. Nicknamed 'The Afro Band' by a longtime fan, Preachermann and The Revival never fails to deliver the uplifting message and danceable cuts concertgoers have come to expect. As Preachermann says, "Walk in with your burdens, and leave with a smile. Are you ready for church?"

    At a time when the art of the live performance is losing ground to homemade internet videos, and neophyte music groups are being awarded record deals without ever having wooed a single live audience, New York City's Preachermann testifies to the tried and true formulas for achieving lasting success in a 'here today gone tomorrow' culture: hard-work, talent, perseverance, charisma, and humility. His voice, lyrics and stage performance stand on soul-shoulders as varied as the Isley Brothers, Lenny Kravitz, Ritchie Havens, Bob Dylan, Al Greene, and James Brown, and yet all of these influences bow to his own remarkably deep and refined endowments. Among those in the know, Preacher's live performances - the sheer spiritual splendor of them - are among the few must-see underground gems in New York City. In addition to earning artist-in-residence status at the venerated downtown staple, the Bowery Poetry Club, Preachermann has thrown down in legendary venues like CBGB, The Knitting Factory and Joe's Pub, and in avant-garde art scenes such as the Kitchen, all to critical acclaim and ever-widening popular appeal.

    The next step - Beautiful, Exciting, New, Intriguing, Talented, Alluring = B.E.N.I.T.A. Benita Charles is a moment in space and time that should be preserved for eternity. She possesses an unparalleled love for the stage and the art of performing, and her electrical dynamic vocal charged signature style of singing is more than just a gift for your ears. It will please your heart as well. Her musical influences are Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Tony Braxton, Anita Baker, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Teena Marie. Not one to wait for opportunity, she created her own vehicle to express her music through a one - women live show called "Moments In Love," in Greenwich Village, NYC which will later become the inspiration for her first CD with the same title. Other productions include, The Benita Charles Show: The Gift and The Benita Charles & Friends concerts for Make Music New York and the September Concert (September 11th) events.
