Arts In The Quad: Dustbowl Revival

UC Quad
Music, Art, Food, Community and Clubs on the University Center Quad.

This installment of Arts in the Quad will feature the roots jazz of Southern California's Dustbowl Revival.

The band 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.

“A nine-piece band replete with tuba, washboard, accordion, fiddle, mandolin, trumpet and guitar joyously pumped out early 20th century standards and original tunes that would have sounded utterly at home within the hallowed confines of Preservation Hall in New Orleans’ French Quarter. ” - LA TIMES

“An old-time medicine show featuring the kind of roots music that normally isn’t my cup of twang, except it offered great bands like the Dustbowl Revival, whose Americana swing was so fun I went back to see them again the next day.” - ROLLING STONE
