The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, swamp blues and the hot swing of the 1930’s to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their inspired live sets, the Dustbowl Revival boldly brings together many styles of traditional American music. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show meeting Louis Armstrong’s Hot Seven Band in New Orleans or Bob Dylan and Fats Waller jamming with Mumford & Sons on a front porch in 1938.
Growing steadily from a small string band playing up and down the west coast (hundreds shows in the last two years), DBR has blossomed into a traveling collective featuring instrumentation that often includes fiddle, mandolin, trombone, clarinet, trumpet, banjo, accordion, tuba, pedal steel, drums, guitars, a bass made from a canoe oar, harmonica and plenty of washboard and kazoo for good luck.
With an enthusiastic and growing national following, DBR released their first LP “You Can’t Go Back To The Garden of Eden” to rave reviews. Their tune “Dan’s Jam”, received Americana Song Of The Year honors by the Independent Music Awards (Tom Waits, Ozzy Osbourne judging). The group has placed songs in several independent films and TV projects including “Made In China” (IFC) which won SXSW, and in an upcoming episode of FOX’s AMERICAN IDOL. National radio play includes LA’s KCRW and KCSN, Austin’s KGSR, SF’s KPFA and Seattle’s taste-making KEXP.
Their EP + vinyl 7’’ "Holy Ghost Station" was released in the summer of 2011 under the auspices of Raymond Richards with Rockets Red Glare (Local Natives) and in 2011-12 Dustbowl played with artists as diverse as The Rebirth Brass Band, Best Coast, Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers and more, hosting shows from Chicago to Seattle, Anchorage and San Diego as well as playing festivals like Outside Lands, Lightning In a Bottle, Make Music Pasadena and The New LA Folk Festival.
2013 has a new album Carry Me Home (produced by Eric Lilavois) on the way. Merging their vintage style with a hip, lose-your-troubles-and-start-moving vibe, the record perfectly encompasses the band’s upbeat message. Seeking to travel more widely in 2013, the band will be playing Mountain Song Bluegrass Cruise to The Bahamas (Punch Brothers, David Grisman) as well as venturing to Arizona, Colorado, Oregon and beyond.
Better Than Bacon
Better Than Bacon is a rock band based out of Fort Collins, Colorado.
We've traveled more than 20,000 miles over the majestic mountains and raging rivers of Colorado, finding favor among festivals, ski towns, juke-joints and the late-night party scene, as well as from venue owners and fellow musicians.
Our music packages well-crafted tunes with punchy grooves, gritty vocals and sizzling guitars. Blend in buttery harmonies and jazz sensibilities, and out comes the "Greasy Rock 'N' Roll with Old Soul!"
We'll be sticking around the Front Range for most of October, working on new material and finishing up our debut album! Stay tuned to the news section for more info and check the calendar for some Denver and Fort Collins dates before we hit the road again at the end of the month!
We can't wait for mud season to be over and to get back into the POW-dah!...ski season right around the bend...
Once the snow starts flying, we'll be making stops in some of our favorite places: Crested Butte, Telluride, Snowmass, Vail, Steamboat, Keystone and a host of other high-altitude throw downs! Stay tuned to the calendar....
Keep it Greasy!
