The Dustbowl Revival:
The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, CA-based folk orchestra playing a raucous brand of ethnic roots music. An ever-evolving collective of up to twelve musicians including washboard, trumpet, tuba, clarinet, trombone, banjo, mandolin, pedal steel, blues harp, kazoo and more, Dustbowl’s riotous dance-your-ass off sets bring you on a tour of traditional American music with a thoroughly modern twist. Think Dylan and The Band meets The Devil Makes Three meets Satchmo down in New Orleans. “Bluegrass-swing like the Blue Ridge miners from the 1920’s heading into town for dancing and drinking.” –MUSIC SPECTRUM

The Record Company: The Record Company is a rock/blues/roots trio based in Los Angeles. Steeped in the classic sounds of Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker along with the raw rock and roll of The Stooges and The Yardbirds, The Record Company have burst onto the scene in a very short time.
Their live show has quickly become acclaimed throughout North America and has drawn capacity audiences from Los Angeles to Montreal. With their new EP Superdead, the band has been receiving strong airplay at AAA and college radio throughout the United States and Canada and have been featured on L.A. Weekly, Time Out L.A. and XPN/The Key amongst others.
While never trying to simply emulate the great masters, the band have found their own fresh take on the music and can best be described as a group giving a 21st century nod to a timeless art form.
Mojo Stone: Old-school, soul-rock band, Mojo Stone, is gaining its reputation as one of the best live bands in Los Angeles. Harnessing and re-contextualizing elements of folk-rock, rockabilly and soul in the service of a full-frontal rock assault, these troubadours have entertained audiences in venues across the country; from Denver to Manhattan, San Francisco to Nashville.
“Having the opportunity to tour and road test our music has allowed us to evolve,” says lead vocalist, Natalie Meadors. “playing to different folks in different states, writing on the road, being open to its influence...that's what you hear in our music.”
This L.A. based-band has an impressive track record, finishing a month-long southern tour in 2011promoting their first E.P., Hatchet, a sold-out record release show at Silverlake’s Bootleg Theater this past March, as well as a brand-new sophomore E.P., Strange Honey, produced by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros sound engineer, Matt Linesch. Such accomplishments landed them as The Deli Magazine’s L.A. artists of the month this past February.
Despite the band’s accomplishments off-stage, their live show proves to be their crown jewel, with incendiary performances reminiscent of the Rolling Stones and Big Brother & The Holding Company. Don’t miss out on the experience. Visit mojostone.com for tour updates and other news.
