Dust Bowl Revival @ Redondo Union High School Auditorium
Apr 4 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Over the past few years, The Dustbowl Revival has been making a name for itself with a vibrant mix of vintage Americana sounds. Critics have proclaimed that this eclectic eight-piece would have sounded utterly at home within the hallowed confines of Preservation Hall in New Orleans’ French Quarter (Los Angeles Times) and their upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear (L.A. Weekly). Rob Sheffield, in Rolling Stone, hailed them as a great band whose Americana swing was so fun I went back to see them again the next day. Their new eponymous album, however, finds the Los Angeles-based ensemble evolving and refining its music. Their always-joyous sound now reveals a more soulful, funky side that exudes deeper emotions and taps a more modern vibe. This exhilarating new sound jumps out on the albums opening tracks, Call My Name and If You Could See Me Now. Drummer Joshlyn Heffernan and bassist James Klopfleisch lay down a righteous groove that trumpeter Matt Rubin and trombonist Ulf Bjorlin supercharge with their big blasts of horns. Featuring a guest spot by multi-Grammy-winner and fellow genre-bender Keb Mo, this track serves up a timeless slice of sweet, silky soul music. The evolution in the bands sound has been very much an organic one. Since Signature Sounds released their last album, With a Lampshade On, the Dustbowl Revival has been out on the road, winning over audiences with their free-flowing, joyous live performances. After playing more than 200 shows a year during the last four years, the Dustbowl Revival came to realize that they had outgrown the confining label of a retro-minded band playing music from a bygone era and needed to move in new directions. 2017 marks the tenth anniversary of The Dustbowl Revivals formation. It was back in 2007 when Lupetin, a Midwestern transplant to Los Angeles, posted an ad in Craigslist in hopes of creating a group inspired by brass band and string band traditions. Over the years, the group has been an inclusive outfit that frequently shifted in size before solidifying in its current eight-piece lineup. Website: https://www.dustbowlrevival.com
