The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it a string band-brass band mash up. Maybe it’s swing-grass or good old Americana, however you spin it, Dustbowl creates and curates infectious, joyous music – a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.
After winning Americana song of the year from the Independent Music Awards (Tom Waits judging), getting tapped to play top festivals like High Sierra, Floydfest, AmericanaFest and The Hudson River Revival and opening for bands like Lake Street Dive, Rebirth Brass Band, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Trombone Shorty, the band has become a barnstorming touring machine. They will go international for the first time in 2015, joining The Winnipeg Folk Festival, Naked Song Fest (Netherlands) and Bergenfest (Norway) where they will team up with Tori Amos, First Aid Kit and Jackson Browne.
Founder Z. Lupetin came west from Chicago in 2007 and placed a humble Craigslist ad to get the circus started. The group has grown steadily from a humble string band playing up and down the west coast, into a traveling mini orchestra featuring instrumentation that often includes fiddle, mandolin, trombone, clarinet, trumpet, ukulele, drums, bass, harmonica and plenty of washboard and kazoo for good luck. They have settled into an eight piece touring group – rattling ceilings and sometimes bringing their grinning sound into the street.
They have recorded their first mostly LIVE album “With A Lampshade On” at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall and LA’s famed Troubadour and released it in July 2015 through Signature Sounds Recordings.
