“would have sounded utterly at home within the hallowed confines of Preservation Hall in New Orleans’ French Quarter” –Los Angeles Times
“upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear”
“a great band whose Americana swing was so fun I went back to see them again the next day.” – Rolling Stone
Los Angeles-based octet The Dustbowl Revival seamlessly blends New Orleans jazz, bluegrass, and folk music into a joyous, old-school sound. Taking equal inspiration from Django Reinhardt and Western swing styles, country trio Hot Club of Cowtown has developed a reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity that places its members “at the very top of their game” (New York Times). Together, both groups celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Band, performing music from The Band’s classic albums “Music from Big Pink” and “The Band.”
Hot Club of Cowtown
Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, the Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand. Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent), remaining “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time” (New York Times). The band’s musical alchemy has been described as “another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” (The Times, London), while American Songwriter observed that “the excellent three players of this band could be doing anything but have chosen to honor the greats of jazz and swing with their sound.” The Belfast Telegraph calls the Hot Club of Cowtown “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game,” and the New York Times, in a live review the trio as armed with “an arsenal full of technique and joy.”
