American roots band, Dustbowl Revival, mashes the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues and roots music into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal! Over the last five years, Dustbowl has become known for free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining a funky rhythm and brass section with a fast picking string band section—opening for bands as diverse as Lake Street Dive, Trombone Shorty, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

While the band has been known for their old-time and bluegrass roots, they have departed from those styles and evolved more into modern soul music. Now, with Producer Grammy Award-winning Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys) who collaborated on the recent album, Dustbowl Revival brings it on, in the good company of neo-Soul contemporaries such as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and St. Paul & The Broken Bones.
