The Dustbowl Revival is an Americana and Soul band with eight full-time members who combine the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into genre-hopping, time-bending concerts that new fire out of familiar coal. The band was founded in 2008 in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, California.
The band released their fourth studio album in 2017 with Grammy Award winning producer and Flogging Molly founding member Ted Hutt. While the band launched with an old-time style and deeper bluegrass roots, they recently departed toward a more modern soul sound, still with their mixture of New Orleans swing, Americana, blues, and roots-rock.
Over the last five years Dustbowl has become known for their free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining a funk rhythm and brass section with a fast-picking string band section. They’ve opened for a diverse roster of bands including Lake Street Dive, Trombone Shorty, and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band; toured China as a guest of the state department; and headlined festivals including Delfest, Floydfest, and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. The band garnered attention with their music video for “Never Had to Go,” which featured famous actor Dick Van Dyke and garnered over 10 million cumulative views.
The Dustbowl Revival brings their newest sound – the place where funk and folk meet – to an audience in Steamboat Springs.
