The Firewater Tent Revival comes from a small fishing village, located just outside of Jacksonville Florida known as Mayport. Not quite Bluegrass, not really Country or Rock, this “High-Energy String Band” performs music that playfully entertains a crowd with storyteller-style lyrics and bluegrass instrumentation. Done "jam band" style with a rock and roll attitude, Firewater simply makes you want to dance. They find themselves in high demand with a schedule filling out fast, and have become staple fixtures at live-music venues throughout Jacksonville such as Fly's Tie Irish Pub and Bold City Brewery.
The group recorded their first EP "Sinkin' Boat" in February 2015. Two months later in April, Firewater played their way into the hearts of Jacksonville's public, where they were voted to win 3rd place in the popular crowd funding festival "One Spark."
"When it ain't fun to do anymore, it's over" is the perspective that the band maintains, and since 2010, fun is exactly what it's been. The typical fan finds themselves staying an extra hour or 2 and ordering another round because "Firewater is playing til close!"
