There is a California bluegrass-ish group out there called The Dustbowl Revival. They recently got Dick Van Dyke to help them shoot a video, and the result is magical.
Here’s what their web page says about The Dustbowl Revival:
The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it a string band-brass band mash up. Maybe it’s swing-grass or good old Americana, however you spin it, Dustbowl creates and curates infectious, joyous music – a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.
And of course everybody remembers Dick Van Dyke from The Dick Van Dyke show, and Mary Poppins, and all the other things he’s done. And he’s always been an amazing dancer.
He’s now 89 years old, and doesn’t appear to have slowed down at all.
I don’t know how The Dustbowl Revival got him to do the video, but his presence makes it really fun.
Here’s a still from the video.
The man still has it. And those tiles look pretty fun to dance on, too.
Here’s the video. Have fun watching it (and listening, too).
