    The Dustbowl Revival

    The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it string band-brass band mash up. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938. It’s infectious, joyous music – a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.

    Named “Best Live Band in LA” by The LA Weekly, each Dustbowl performance promises to be a white-knuckle ride through the history of American folk music that rarely stays just on the stage. Call it the new old-timey dance hall sound made fresh by some of the best soloists in the business. After placing several songs on ABC and Fox and having tunes featured in independent films like “Made In China” (winner of SXSW) winning Americana song of the year from the Independent Music Awards (Tom Waits judging), playing festivals like Outside Lands and Live Oak and opening for bands like Rebirth Brass Band and Trombone Shorty, the band began barnstorming  more extensively across the USA.

    Founder Z. Lupetin came west from Chicago and placed a humble Craigslist ad to get the circus started. The group has grown steadily from a small string band playing up and down the west coast, into a traveling mini orchestra featuring instrumentation that often includes fiddle, mandolin, trombone, clarinet, trumpet, ukelele, drums, tuba, organ, a bass made from a canoe oar, harmonica and plenty of washboard and kazoo for good luck.

    With their latest record Carry Me Home rising on the Americana charts, the band is slated for a big 2014. A European tour is in the works. They will be recording their first live album at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall and LA’s famed Troubadour and have toured the Midwest and East coast.

    Janet Klein

    The enchanting and effervescent chanteuse Janet Klein performs obscure, lively and lovely tunes from the 1910’s, 20’s and 30’s. Joined by some of her LA based band members, The Parlor Boys, you’ll be treated to spirited and inspired renditions of early hot jazz, Tin Pan Alley, vaudeville, ragtime and other rare and rustic gems. Janet Klein has been performing her special brand of song fare since 1996. Her own unique vocal style reflects the old fashioned sweetness and titillating charm of bygone singers like Ruth Etting, Josephine Baker, Lil Armstrong and Mae West. Born in California, Klein has always felt a strong affinity to the music and culture of the early twentieth century. In addition to being a classically trained pianist, she also plays a mean ukulele and has a voice as sweet as a robin’s song on a sunny, spring morning. Be sure to take a peek at her ukulele as it is a one-of-a-kind instrument beautifully adorned with cherry blossoms. Her band, THE PARLOR BOYS, are all gents who avidly collect old recordings from 78 rpm records and are immersed in the pursuit of capturing an authentic vintage sound and musical style. Janet and her band regularly perform at historic theaters in Hollywood and Los Angeles and other landmark venues throughout the United States. Their CD release “Living In Sin” was voted in the Top Ten Jazz and Pop Critic’s Award Poll of the Village Voice. The band has returned from their fifth tour of Japan including the Internationally Renowned Fuji Rock Festival, in conjunction with their 7 have just debuted in Australia as part of the Cabaret Festival of Adelaide and will be appearing at the Ukulele Hooley Festival in Dun Laoghaire Ireland in August 2013. Once a year they perform at the grand 1927 Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite, and monthly at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood, Cicada Club at the historic art deco Oviatt Building downtown Los Angeles, and the Old Town Music Hall, El Segundo.
