Reviva is more than just a band, it is a way of life. Literally, the word “Reviva” in Spanish translates to “relive”, or “revive”. Our mission is to revive justice, peace, and original music in our local and global community. When you leave a Reviva concert, we want you to feel refreshed, renewed, and reenergized. That’s because we’ve spent five years together perfecting our lyrics and sound in an effort to be the original voice for the voiceless. We sing about real stories that happen to real people, from American adolescent self-esteem issues, the Lost Boys of Sudan, PTSD rates in our troops, to innocent Afghanis who have lost their families and livelihood over a misguided war for oil. We tell the truth about life, love, and even death itself, and do it through incredible live performances from some of Albuquerque’s top professional musicians.
Now, with eight members, Ragon (drums), Buddha (bass), Rick (keys, vox, and melodica), Cody (mystic percussion), Jerel (guitar and vox), Brian (keys), Chris (vox) and Diles (efx and sound), we are currently reviving ourselves and our music. With Chris back, we are about to finish our second album, La Verdad, with our producer Colin ‘Diles’ Hazelbaker at Central Root Studios in Albuquerque. Our fans should expect more of a reggae and latin influence, as Chris spent his time in Nicaragua in a community where Reggae and country music blend with Latin-style dance music to form a very unique sound. We want our fans to dance away their problems as they jam to the new tunes coming out of our voices and instruments. Fans should also expect to hear more lyrics in Spanish, as well as Jerel, Buddha, and Chris harmonizing on vocals, as they have been working towards a more complete sound.
It is also time for Reviva to make the jump outside of New Mexico. While we are proud to be from the Land of Enchantment, we are ready to share our music with other states in the Southwest. We have already played with some of the biggest national bands such as The Wailers, Ozomatli, Tribal Seeds, Incubus, and the Dirty Heads, and at some of the biggest locations in New Mexico, like Sunshine Theater, Hard Rock Pavilion, Route 66 Casino, Taos Ski Valley, and Santa Fe Brewery. We plan to hit the road this winter, with new songs, a new sound, and more energy. As Bob Marley said, “time alone, time will tell”, but we are all believas in Reviva, and feel that one day, with hard work and little luck, we are going to change the world, from within.

Rock 'n' roll, country soul from Austin TX
All Ages / Bar with ID
Amarillo-born Cody Jasper may wear boots covered with Texas soil, but his rock ’n’ roll passions stretch way beyond its boundaries, influenced by characters named Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke and Waylon Jennings. In fact, Jasper’s love for Waylon led him directly to Waylon’s son, who showed him how to graft outlaw country together with rock and turn it into audio dynamite. “If it wasn’t for Shooter's music,” Jasper says, “I would still be trying to decide if I was country or rock ’n’ roll.” Fortunately, he doesn’t have to. On Cody Jasper (Feb. 18, 2014), his debut album, the 24-year-old singer and guitarist delivers a hot mix of southern-infused rock, blues and soul, peppered with outlaw country, fanned by guitar-god flames and impassioned by the gospel heart of Stax’s finest. He keeps a little Texas tradition with him, however, in the form of a 1959 Epiphone Zephyr tube amp that belonged to his great-grandfather, who played guitar with Bob Wills.
Jasper, 24, who moved to Colorado while still in his teens to join rock band The Wildbills, toured the states as their vocalist and lead guitarist before moving to Austin. The album track “Someday” dates back to that period; all but two of the album’s cuts are his own. “Black Cadillac” and “The Deal is Done” were written with Nick Jay, who produced the album and contributed bass, keyboards and backing vocals. Working at Nest Recording in Dripping Springs, outside of Austin, Jasper bottled lightning on songs such as the slide-driven “Cherry Pie,” the aching ballad “Mona Lisa” and the sweaty crunch-rocker “Evil Woman.”
