Dustbowl were formed in Athens Greece (May 2006) by Nick Fysakis (Guitar), Giotis “The Shoeshine Boy” Petrelis (Drums), Lydia Grammatikou (Bass, Vocals) along with DD Dynamite (Vocals, Guitar until Dec. 2010) and Big George (Vocals 2006-09, 2011-14).
John “Hardy” Houstoulakis (Pedal Steel Guitar, Guitar) joined the band in 2008.
Makis Dremetsikas (Guitar, Banjo, Vocals joined in 2014) and Panos Birbas (Vocals, Guitar joined in Jan. 2015) fulfilled the current line-up.
Dustbowl built their own flavor of Americana & Alt. Country-Rock: “Mother – Earth Rock” as they called their new “Great Fandango” album and project. They weren’t concerned about fitting in or being a part of what anybody else was doing but the “rebellious and deviant chain gang & the dust bowl refugees”!
