“Honestly, the Big River Get Down and The Revivalists are what put RiversEdge on the music map as a destination,” Helms said, “…Big River Get Down, David Shaw, The Revivalists and The Revivalists management and their agents have done a lot to help Hamilton and RiversEdge as a music venue.”
Traditionally, Shaw has served as Hamilton’s mayor for a day on the day of the festival. In honor of Shaw and his band, the City has been nicknamed Jam!lton on that day.
Headlined by The Revivalists, the 2019 Big River Get Down line-up also featured Chris Gelbuda, Neal Francis, Southern Avenue, Brent Cobb, and The War And Treaty.
The 2019 event marked the fifth year for the annual Big River Get Down and the eighth consecutive year that The Revivalists have performed at RiversEdge. Shaw graduated from Hamilton High School in 2001. He currently resides in New Orleans.
