David Shaw of The Revivalists will be hosting the “Big River Get Down presented by Miller Light” on September 7th at RiversEdge Amphitheatre in Hamilton, OH. The event is a special one for Shaw, the charismatic frontman of chart-topping rock band The Revivalists, as it’s turned into a national destination for fans across the country as he gives back to his hometown community that has given so much.
Marking the fifth anniversary of Big River Get Down, this year’s event includes “An Evening with David Shaw” on September 6th, an intimate solo acoustic performance part of the JAM!LTON VIP Experience package (you can find details HERE). On September 7th, the event will feature a headlining performance by The Revivalists with additional performances by The War And Treaty, Brent Cobb, Southern Avenue, Neal Francis, and Chris Gelbuda. All proceeds from the festival will be donated to the City of Hamilton’s 4th of July fireworks and RiversEdge Concert Series. Since its inception in 2015, David Shaw’s Big River Get Down has donated more than $80,000 to these events and has helped attract other talented musicians to perform free concerts at RiversEdge Amphitheater.
