Dustbowl Revival is an Americana Soul band with eight members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. Dustbowl is touring behind their self-titled, fourth studio album which spent three weeks on Billboard charts, hit #1 on Amazon Americana-Alt-Country, #2 on Amazon Folk, spent 16 weeks on the Americana radio chart peaking in the Top 20, and has spent one straight year on the Folk radio chart.
The band was founded in 2008 in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, California. Over the last five years Dustbowl has become known for their free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining their funk rhythm and brass section with a fast-picking string band section; opening for bands as diverse as Lake Street Dive, Trombone Shorty and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Rolling Stone hailed them as a great band “whose Americana swing was so fun I went back to see them again the next day.”
Dustbowl Revival is Zach on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, Liz on lead vocals and ukulele, James on bass, Josh on drums, Daniel on mandolin, Connor on fiddle, Ulf on trombone and Matt on trumpet.
Dustbowl Revival performs on Friday, July 12 at 9:30pm on the Main Stage.
