Characterized as "explosively intoxicating," Greensboro, North Carolina's Holy Ghost Tent Revival cannot be pigeonholed into any popular genre. Melding brass with banjo, guitar, bass and drums, this five-piece ensemble boasts an eclectic mash of instruments and styles -- a musical alchemy all their own.
It is this transcendent energy that continuously propels Holy Ghost Tent Revival to play the heart and soul of a North Carolina-born, genre-defying new groove. With a penchant for crafting thoughtfully playful lyrics and graced with exceptional musical skills, there are seemingly no boundaries for this group as they travel the country spreading the magic of their heart-throbbing, foot-stomping, good-time music.

  • ‎"Nimbly frolicking from one song to the next, Holy Ghost Tent Revival of Greensboro, N.C. crafts old-timey newgrass-tinged folk pop marked by upbeat banjos, perky horns and wildly harmonizing vocals -- overall, it's chipper, charming, blithe-spirited good time music..." -Creative Loafing Tampa
  • "The songs, ... are actually tightly crafted pop gems with timeless melodies, great harmonies, and subject matter that more often than not circles around the craziness of love, all delivered with an immediate and organic rush of joy." -allmusic.com
  • "Take a pinch of plucky banjo, a dash of euphonium euphoria, a heaping helping of rowdy Americana and a whole lotta shakin’ and you’ve got something approximating the feverish frenzy that is a performance by Greensboro, North Carolina’s Holy Ghost Tent Revival." -Seven Days
