Tonight’s the night folks, and it’s a very special one at that! Truly, it is a night for celebrating!!
Yes, if you’re in New Orleans and are looking for a late night party filled with wild and wonderful music, then D.B.A. on Frenchmen St. is where you want to be!
Tonight will be a memorable one folks. A night of firsts and lasts, of introductions and farewells. We have a new album, a damn good album, to finally release! We have new members to introduce. We have new songs to debut! We will have more people on our stage tonight than every before, and the sound will be HUGE!! Tonight will also mark the passing of the torch from Mr Charles “Big Charlie” Skinner to the lovely Sandra Love! We got it all, baby, we got it all!
and about this new album….
For the past year we have been working vigorously to create something new and exciting for ourselves and for you. Now, we have a record that is by far our best, and it’s time for you to have it too.
IMPORTANT THINGS HUMANS SHOULD KNOW!!
Yes folks, tonight will mark the beginning of a new and exciting time in the Dirty Bourbon River Show. New songs, new people, and a new album!
Come on out to One Eyed Jack’s in the quarter and get down for a good cause. Luke’s House is a free clinic in New Orleans that serves those without access to healthcare. So come on out and get some brass and party with a purpose.
Red Wolf Brass Band starts the night off at 6:30, Panorama Brass Band will keep the party going at 7:30, and Dirty Bourbon closes it out at 8:30.
The album will be released worldwide on April 7th, 2015 via our website, iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify, Amazon, blah blah blah, and all those other hunky dory little download & stream sites. Additionally, we’ll be having a hometown release party on April 4th at DBA on Frenchmen if you want to come grab a physical copy early.
Can’t make it to New Orleans?
Don’t you worry, we’ll be doing a 4 month national tour to follow. We just posted 16 new dates on our sidebar, with many more pouring in everyday! Don’t see your city there yet? Don’t worry, we’re coming for ya!… Also, on or before the album’s release, our wonderful Kickstarter donors should be receiving their sweet gift packages in the mail. Again, so so so much thanks to everyone who made this project possible – we wouldn’t have been able to make it this dope without you.
So, did you get what you were looking for? Because if not, here’s a little icing to top it all off – a live rendition of “Ezmerelda” we just finished with our friends over at the Sugar Shack Sessions:
Come one, come all, to new free festival called Fools of April. Hosted by Loyola University & Crescent City Radio, the event will take place in the West Road Parking Garage on Loyola’s main campus. There’s plenty of beer, food, & awesome student bands, with Dirty Bourbon closing out the event at 6:20pm. Come get down on this awesome grub, drank & musica!
Check out this awesome footage! Full set, flying cameras, fancy clothes, 1080HD, the works! Special thanks to Ashley Sampson and Lea Lintern for hooking it up. Here’s five of our favorite picks and then a link to the entire performance at the end:
After all the instrumental beds and overdubs were complete, Wes, Noah, and Boots went back into the studio to mix the new tracks. Since watching three guys sitting in chairs for hours on end isn’t very exciting, here are some cool murals from the Mirliton Festival site in the Bywater!
We’ve finished up all of the instrumental beds for the new album! It was great getting back into the studio and working with Wes, one of the best recording engineers around New Orleans. We’re really looking forward to how this new one turns out. Stay tuned for more updates.
It is time for yet another chapter in the rich and ever-transforming history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. On December 31st, 2013 we will be releasing our 8th studio album – “Accordion Anthology” – via digital download on our Bandcamp Site. A special edition 180 gram vinyl will follow. Produced by Buck Johnson and the Hootenanny Kid and recorded in New Orleans over a five year period at Piety St. Studios, The Music Shed and Loyola University, “Accordion Anthology” features a new accordion-based arrangement of one song from each of DBRS’s past studio albums, intertwined with new, unheard, unreleased material.

To accompany its release we will be performing a special live show on NYE at the Maison on Frenchmen St in New Orleans – We’ll hit at 10pm and play until the New Year comes. Following a special ball dropping countdown ceremony, guests to follow include fellow New Orleanian gypsy stomp mafia band Debauche and annual host DJ Jubilee. VIP Balcony Tickets and more information Here.

Fulfilling our promise of releasing 2 LP’s a year for our 1st four years as a band, this 8th studio album and the accompanying live show at the Maison marks yet another great achievement in the history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. We can’t wait to share it with you. Ad Astera per Apera.
