Cal Poly Arts presents a dynamic Fremont Theater concert, filled with vintage American classics that have a bold new sound in a fun, free-wheeling musical evening.
Two of today’s defining American roots groups – DUSTBOWL REVIVAL and HOT CLUB OF COWTOWN – join their creativity for “ACROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE,”
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of The Band, the artists will be showcasing their own songs plus a special tribute to “Music from Big Pink” and “The Band.”
Eclectic octet Dustbowl Revival blends folk-Americana and Stax-era soul into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party. With strings, brass, dueling vocals and more, the winners of “Best Live Band” by L.A. Weekly exemplify everything shows should be: “hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear.”
Joining them is Austin-based trio Hot Club of Cowtown, which delivers hot jazz and Western swing light and tight, “like tumbleweeds made of velvet.” Inspired by European hot jazz and vintage American roots music, these Texas Western Swing Hall of Famers have shared stages with Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and Roxy Music.
Tickets are $42 general admission, sold exclusively online through EVENTBRITE.COM or in person at Boo Boo Records, 978 Monterey Street in San Luis Obispo. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
