      EVENT DETAILS
      The Dustbowl Revival


      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. This Stax-style soul builds to a pair of showstoppers: Good Egg and The Story. The former is a dynamic number that showcases Liz Beebes sexy, full-throttled vocals as well as Bjorlins dirty trombone solo. On The Story, Beebe teams with band founder Zach Lupetin for an emotionally charged love song that features some infectious interplay between the horn players and the string-men (mandolinist Daniel Mark and fiddler Connor Vance). The albums first single, Busted, also exemplifies the sonic leap taken by the band. Spotlighted by Beebes slinky jazz vocals, the song mixes traditional American music styles, like the blast of R&B horns and the in-the-pocket drums, with some inventive touches, such as a mandolin plucked like a hip-hop inspired piano, and the upright bass and fiddle played through wah-pedals. The group has said that recording Busted was like a door opening for them to create something familiar yet stylistically fresh.
