The conversation will be followed by a special performance. Comprising of eight full-time members, The Dustbowl Revival are known for their unique sound that combines New Orleans funk, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. The band is currently on tour in support of their self-titled, fourth studio album, which spent three weeks on the Billboard charts, hit No. The band was founded in in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, Calif. Over the last five years, Dustbowl have toured over days per year and become known for their free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining their funk rhythm and brass section with a fast-picking string band section —- opening for bands as diverse as Lake Street Dive, Trombone Shorty, and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The band also reached a larger audience with their music video featuring Dick Van Dyke that went on to garner more than 10 million cumulative views and be featured in an HBO documentary. While the band have been known for their old-time and bluegrass roots, they have departed from those styles and evolved more into modern soul music.

Lupetin with typically soulful, understated charm. It's practically a mission statement, a declaration of the purpose that animates the band's fourth album from start to finish: Dustbowl Revival wants to cheer you up. Over the course of 13 songs, the Los Angeles-based ensemble works in a wide range of musical styles, most of them accentuating the positive. All of the songs here feel less rootsy than the band's earlier work, and generally less fun. For all of its positivity, the album doesn't quite capture Dustbowl Revival's spirit. Compared to that scene, this set sounds subdued. The talent is there, and the positivity is laudable, but it just doesn't match the gusto of their earlier work. Shows Good Morning America.
