Thank you everybody that has chipped in to help out with our recent robbery in ST. Louis – thanks to our family and friend’s generosity we have already raised $545 in less than 24 hours
Click the above picture to help chip in! We are currently working on replacing the stolen items, and will post an itemized list of replacements for accountability once they have been acquired! Have already found an accordion case, just need to get a GPS, Garment bag & clothes for Matt now! Boy, does he stink…
PS Show tonight in Columbia, MO at Roxy’s
Ad Astera per Aspera
What a crazy day it’s been St. Louis. This weekend, crackheads broke into our van and stole Noah’s accordion & handmade accordion case, our Yeti GPS, and all of Matt’s clothing. WTF?
We immediately scoured all the surrounding pawnshops & 2nd hand music stores – and strangely enough – we found the accordion had been pawned at a local music shop. We have now recovered the accordion, but what has not been recovered (& probably never will be) is the case, the GPS, and all of Matt’s clothing – his suits, his vests, his pants, his ties – even his skibbies – which totals to over $1,000 in loss (not including the skibbies).
And this really sucks. We are full-time touring musicians, and barely make enough as it is…
Want to help? Click the donation button below, and kick in a dollar, a hundred, or if you’re feeling frisky, a $1000 – whatever you have helps – if you’re broke like us don’t worry about it – just tell a rich person instead
Much love – & please don’t smoke crack
Tomorrow night (6/5/13 7-10pm) at the National Historic Museum the Dirty Bourbon River Show will headline the 69th Annual Radio & Television Correspondents Dinner in Washington D.C. Other entertainment includes Washboard Chaz Blues Trio, the Storyville Stompers Brass Band, jazz pianist John Royen, Mardi Gras Indians, and guest Chef Emeril. Yup, Emeril.
Unfortunately, the event will not be broadcasted on CSPAN this year as originally scheduled. This is the 1st year it will not be – for some reason CSPAN deemed this year’s programming to be “not a news event” – whatever that means… is it due to the “New Orleans” theme? Who knows… But well be sure to post pics & video of the event as soon as we have it; these new red suits we rented are something to be seen!
Attention skilled, knowledgeable, objective writers of the internets! We need your help! Our wikipedia page has fallen out of date, and you’re not supposed to alter your own page (because, aside from wiki guidelines, it’s just plain vain) so we need your help!

Please remember there are certain guidelines to follow on wikipedia so the page doesn’t get flagged. Any help is much appreciated – help us make our mark in history!

Oh No! Noah’ s thinking of quitting the band and starting a solo career… he wants to give everything he worked so hard for up and start making god awful R&B music about his romantic woes and anatomical problems. Here is a sample of the kind of crap he wants to start making:
Please discourage him from quitting the band and embarking on a solo career in the comments section above – It is just a plain bad idea and he needs to be told so. Thank you.
