Dusty 45s @ The Griffin House

Dusty 45s @ The Griffin House – Wednesday, May 3, 2023!
We are thrilled to announce the kickoff of our 2023 Benefit Concert Series with the Dusty 45s .
Please join us on Wednesday, May 3rd from 6:00-8:30pm for a lively night of music with Seattle base band, Dusty 45s .
The Dusty 45s have inspired and fired up crowds for over two decades to the delight of fans and critics alike. With their signature style and unique sound, the band is a consistently powerful and energetic player in the Americana field. Sax, guitars, bass, vocals, rhythym and energy to boot!
We strongly believe that supporting our local community is not only our responsibility, but our duty as a local business. For that reason, this concert is a not for-profit event. We aim to cover costs, support our musicians and give the rest to local schools and organizations in the greater Columbia River Gorge community. Last year, we happily supported the Lyle School Art and Music Department and Safe Space ! The beneficiary of this concert will be announced at the show.

About the Artist:
The Dusty 45’s were founded in 1997 by charismatic singer/songwriter, guitarist and trumpeter, Billy Joe Huels. Huels’ songs draw inspiration from the roots of rock, rhythm and blues, honky-tonk and jazz. The band also consists of Kohen Burrill (drums), Robin Cady (upright bass) and Rod Cook (Lead Guitar).
The Dusty 45s have toured extensively. They backed Rock and Roll Hall of famer, Wanda Jackson many times, including when they joined her for Adele’s “21” tour in 2011. The band has shared the stage with Brandi Carlile, Lyle Lovett, John Prine, The Ventures, Lucinda Williams, Leann Rhymes and Dick Dale, to name a few. In 2007, Huels received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Buddy Holly at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre. In 2019, he interviewed PBS “Country Music” documentarian, Ken Burns, at Meany Hall in front of a sold-out audience.
The Dusty 45s have released 7 recordings. The 2014 album, “Live and On Fire”, showcases the best of their bold and brassy sound recorded live at the Triple Door in Seattle, WA. Huels and the band are currently working on a new recording, to be released in 2022.
