Reviver Entertainment Group invited radio industry members and special guests last weekend (Dec. 14 – 16) for a trip of gratitude and relaxation in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Appropriately named Reviver Fest 2018, the outing offered attendees exclusive hotel amenities as the label commandeered the entire Hotel Zamora for its guests for the waterfront excursion. Led by President/CEO David Ross and Executive VP/GM Gator Michaels, Reviver created this trip to thank industry reps for their support by offering a fun getaway as the year comes to a close. The gathering also gave attendees the change to hang with Reviver’s artists and songwriters and hear their music.

On Saturday, guests enjoyed a variety of offerings including spending time relaxing by the hotel pool, golf at The Mainland Golf Course, fishing in Tampa Bay, spa treatments at Spa Oceana, yoga on the hotel rooftop and kayaking in the hotel’s intra-coastal waterway.

Saturday night had plenty to offer as well with Reviver’s veteran hit-maker and No.1 singer-songwriter David Lee Murphy headlining the popular St. Petersburg’s outdoor venue, Jannus Live.

The free show also featured Reviver artists Tenille Arts, Josh Gracin, and Haley & Michaels. After the show, Reviver’s Regional Promotion Manager Dave Collins shared his gaming skills by offering a poker tournament for guests back at the hotel which lasted long into the night.
