Dust­bowl Re­vival to show its soul­ful, funky side at Night­fall.

FRI­DAY

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF RE­PORT

Over the past few years, Dust­bowl Re­vival has been mak­ing a name for it­self with a vi­brant mix of vin­tage Amer­i­cana sounds. The eight- piece band’s eclec­tic mu­sic ranges from Western swing to Dy­lan-in­spired folk, gospel to Chicago blues, big band to mari­achi-fla­vored marches.

But with the re­lease of its self- ti­tled al­bum last sum­mer, Dust­bowl Re­vival re­vealed a more soul­ful, funky side. Fans at Night­fall on Fri­day, June 1, will hear this when Dust­bowl Re­vival head­lines the free sum­mer con­cert in Miller Plaza. Priscilla and Lit­tle Ric­kee will open at 7 p.m.

Most of Dust­bowl Re­vival’s songs are writ­ten and com­posed by Zach Lu­petin, har­mon­ica, gui­tar, ka­zoo and vo­cals. Liz Beebe, Daniel Mark, Matthew Ru­bin, Ulf Bjor­lin, Josh Hef­fer­nan, Connor Vance and James Klopfleisch com­prise the rest of the band.

The evo­lu­tion in the band’s sound has been an or­ganic one. Since its last al­bum, “With a Lamp­shade On,” the Re­vival has been on the road, win­ning over au­di­ences with its free- flow­ing live per­for­mances. Af­ter play­ing more than 200 shows a year dur­ing the last four years, the mu­si­cians re­al­ized they had out­grown the la­bel of a retro band play­ing mu­sic f rom a by­gone era and needed to move in new di­rec­tions.

To help them achieve that mu­si­cal vi­sion, the band turned to Grammy Award-win­ning pro­ducer Ted Hutt. He pro­duced Old Crow Medicine Show’s 2014 re­lease “Rem­edy,” which earned Hutt the Grammy. With Hutt’s as­sis­tance, Dust­bowl Re­vival cre­ated what they have called “the tight­est, funki­est thing we’ve ever at­tempted.”

See why Dust­bowl Re­vival was named by L.A. Weekly the city’s Best Live Band in 2013. Night­fall, pro­duced by Chat­tanooga Presents, will be held rain or shine.

There will be no Night­fall shows on Fri­days, June 8 and 15, so as not to con­flict with River­bend. Shows re­sume June 22 with Hive The­ory.
