Imagine Louis Armstrong jamming with Bob Dylan and Fats Waller on a front porch in 1938 -- that's The Dustbowl Revival.  New Orleans swing and brass band traditions with bluegrass, jug-band, gospel and swamp-blues.  Fiddle, mandolin, accordion, tuba, trombone, trumpet and clarinet, with plenty of kazoo and washboard for good measure.  

 

By popular demand, Old Town Music Hall is thrilled to welcome back The Dustbowl Revival.  We recommend reservations of either one of these two Easter Sunday performances (see reservation information below).

 

"In a city like Los Angeles, home to musical stars in nearly every known genre, handing out the Best Live Band title is not easy. But the free-thinking local collective Dustbowl Revival's upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear."   -- LA WEEKLY
