Dustbowl Revival

The Dustbowl Revival, an Americana band that combines the sounds of funk, bluegrass and soul into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party, brings its fiery brand of joyful noise to the Stowe Performing Arts’ Music in the Meadow series on Sunday, July 29, at the Trapp Family Lodge Meadow. Gates open at 5 p.m. for picnics and the show starts at 7 p.m.

The band features the rhythm section of drummer Joshlyn Heffernan and bassist James Klopfleish, trumpeter Matt Rubin and trombonist Ulf Bjorlin, founder and guitarist Zach Lupetin, mandolinist Daniel Mark, and fiddler Connor Vance. This ensemble lays the groundwork for the vocals of Liz Beebe, alternately playful and sexy, soaring and sultry.

The Dustbowl Revival formed in 2008 in Venice Beach, Calif., where they became known for their free-flowing, exuberant live shows that combine a funky rhythm and brass section with fast-picking strings, creating a soundscape that draws multiple genres together. Along the way, The Dustbowl Revival has evolved from its bluegrass and roots beginnings to a soul-infused blast. They are currently supporting their eponymously titled fourth studio album, which spent three weeks on the Billboard charts, hit No. 1 on the Amazon Americana-Alt-Country list and No. 2 on Amazon folk, and spent 16 weeks on the Americana radio chart. The Dustbowl Revival were recently named the Best Live Band in L.A.

Advance tickets are $30 until Saturday, July 28, at 3 p.m. at stoweperformingarts.com. Tickets at the gate are $35 for adults and $10 for age 5 to 17.
