I just learned of a dieselpunk band: "April Smith and the Great Picture Show."
The describe themselves as:

April Smith has been described as “a loose-lipped, cocked-hip gal whose music and mien could buoy the Titanic.” That said, her Brooklyn-based band, April Smith and the Great Picture Show, is making a splash with their new album, Songs for a Sinking Ship. The band: April Smith (vocals, rhythm guitar), Marty O’Kane (guitar, uke, accordion
), Mike Bryan (keyboards), Steve Purpuri (bass
), Nick D’Agostino (drums).

Awesome band! In a first moment I was though Jack Terricloth's band "The World/Inferno Friendship Society", but Jack's head is not too much hairy.

Larry, I just listened to April Smith and I like them. I also noticed they're touring with Tally Hall (of Banana Man fame), who have a few decidedly diesel songs in their playlist as well.
