It’s good to be back in good ol’ Winchester, VA, and boy are we excited to wrap up this Summer Tour with our Vaudeville Revue at the always lively Bright Box. Tonight’s entertainment is sure to be an unforgettable experience with comedy, burlesque, and hip-shaking good music!
That’s right, and it’s all happening tonight at the Bright Box. There are only a few tickets left so move quick. Showtime is 8 pm!
As we continue our travels, we find more and more stunning works of street art amidst the crazy hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you find yourself in these cities, see if you can find these pieces.
Hope you enjoy!

Tonight.. we’re back in the Mile High City – Denver, CO – performing at the grand Oriental Theatre. We’ll be joined by the sinister celtic-rock pirates – Potcheen! Doors open up at 7:30!!
Today we make our Portland, Oregon debut and we couldn’t be happier to share the stage with our longtime friends, Portland natives, and phenomenal musicians, Jay Cobb Anderson and Mimi Naja from Fruition! Come out to the Alberta Rose Theater for a night of fine pickin’, singin’, and lots of brass. Mimi and Jay will start off the night at 9, Dirty Bourbon kicks off at 10.
This week we will take a look at one of my favorite recording artists – Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass.
With over 72 million albums sold worldwide, Alpert’s musical accomplishments include five No. 1 albums, nine Grammy awards, fourteen platinum albums, and fifteen gold albums. He is the only recording artist to hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop chart as both a vocalist and an instrumentalist.
It is a personal mission of mine to collect all of the Herb Alpert and Tijuana Brass albums, and so far I have 11 out of 24 albums. His music puts me in a good place, and I hope it does the same fore you!
Whipped Cream and Other Delights – Whipped Cream
South of the Border – Adios, mi Corazon
Lonely Bull – Lonely Bull
Tonight we’re performing in Eugene, OR at Sam Bond’s Garage!! Show time is 9 PM with a $7 cover. See y’all there!
Well folks maybe I can be of service. See yesterday Jimmy went off to the huge Musical Instrument Museum here in Phoenix and came back with all sorts of photos for us. Looking through his shots of various world percussion from various countries really set me back in my chair – I’ve got so much to learn! So I began digging.
As I searched around for different world drums and sounds, I came across a website I will probably be spending a majority of the remainder of the year scanning through. Its catalog of artists is literally that grand!
WOMAD, World Of Music, Art, and Dance, is an international festival bringing together artists from all over the globe, and all of their featured artists deserve high praise. It’s an organization I hope that we can be apart of someday.
Please check it out and let me know what you think. Let me know who you’ve listened to. And of course let me know if you find some hip-shaking, heart-pounding rhythms.
Here’s what I’ve been listening to today! Enjoy and share!!
I thought about it for a while, and figured you beautiful people might find some of the random moments in our camp entertaining/interesting/revealing, so I’ve decided to start grabbing little snippets of our adventures around the country and in NOLA and sharing them with you. Let me know how you like it! A little piece of the DBRS world from the perspective of yours truly…
Also, tonight we return to Albuquerque’s own Low Spirits! The show kicks off at 10 pm with a night of whiskey-drenched musical goodness. Come do your Saturday right!
It’s a double header today! After waking up bright and early after our show in Grand Junction, we’ve made it to Park City, Utah’s Park Silly Sunday Market for a couple of early sets on this beautiful day. Then, tonight we debut in Salt Lake City at the Piper Downtown Pub for a night full of music kicking off at 9 pm.
So if you’re around, come hang with us! In the meantime, enjoy a tour down the History Lane of Saxophone!
This weeks edition of BBR features master guitarist, Chet Atkins. However, this is not a feature on his widely known and praised sophisticated Nashville sound, but rather on his Spanish style abilities.
The Other Chet Atkins is a record unlike any in Mr. Guitar’s catalog – an entire album with no electric instruments or country music – only Latin folk music and Spanish style guitar playing. I bought this record in Houston, Texas at Sig’s Lagoon in Midtown and must have listened to it at least 3 times that night. Everything on this album is beautiful, especially the cover artwork done by Gerry Powell! I own a few other Atkins records (love them all) and was so excited to see and hear this one. It’s without a doubt my favorite.
“The Peanut Vendor”
“Yours (Quiereme Mucho)”
So if you ever come across this record, do yourself a favor and get it! I’d also recommend you get something sweet to sip and someone sweet to kiss too!
