Skirball’s Family Amphitheater Performances: Dustbowl Revival
August 2, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
This summer Skirball is putting on a summer concert series called “Family Amphitheater Performances.” Each weekend features a new band with a different sound and style that will take you and your family on a musical road trip across America.
Lauded as the “Best Live Band in LA” by LA Weekly, the Dustbowl Revival is a local collective that blends old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues, and the hot swing of New Orleans.
The Dustbowl Revival has been performing good ol’ Americana since founder Z. Lupetin posted a Craigslist ad looking for musicians in 2007. Once a small string band, the eight-member group now features a wide array of instrumentation, including fiddle, mandolin, trombone, clarinet, trumpet, ukelele, drums, tuba, organ, a bass made from a canoe oar, harmonica, washboard, and kazoo.
In 2010, their single “You Can’t Go Back to the Garden of Eden” won the Americana Song of the Year at the Independent Music Awards. Promoting the release of their first live album,With a Lampshade On, the Dustbowl Revival is scheduled to tour throughout Europe and North America this summer.
Performances at 12 pm and 2 pm.
