The spirit of the West is alive and well in the music of West Coast-based band The Dustbowl Revival. With eight members, their high-spirited mix of bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, swamp blues, piercing brass blasts, and the hot swing of the 1930s has made them one of the hottest roots music bands on the West Coast, and garnered them praise from the likes of tastemaker radio station KCRW, The Los Angeles Times and LA Weekly.
The Dustbowl Revival has blossomed into a traveling collective featuring instrumentation that includes fiddle, mandolin, trombone, clarinet, trumpet, banjo, accordion, tuba, pedal steel, drums, guitars, a bass made from a canoe oar, harmonica and plenty of washboard and kazoo for good luck.
$20 Advance; $25 at door.
