Holy hell! We had a wild night at the Real Watersports Invitational in Waves, NC – Big shout out to everyone who came out and took care of us last night. If only we could stay just one more night for the Bikini Fashion Show!!
But alas, we have even BIGGER things on the horizon y’all! Tonight in Greensboro – we’re gonna be blowing the roof off the Blind Tiger and we’ll have some help! That’s right folks we’ve got a 3 band bill lined up with the our good buddies Ellis Dyson & the Shambles AND Dr. Bacon!

Dr Bacon / Ellis Dyson & The Shambles / Dirty Bourbon River Show
It has been a strange and wonderful adventure thus far in the Dirty Bourbon River Show! So much has happened and there is so little space and time with which to explain it all.
When we last left off, our heroes had just flown across the world for what would be a most victorious trip overseas. The band, trimmed down to just a 4piece, performed in some of the coolest and most absolutely beautiful places that the Swiss region had to offer. To quote Bill Murray, “We came, we saw, and we kicked it’s ass!” But seriously folks, it was an amazing feeling to not only be so well received but to also be so well taken care of. We truly couldn’t have done it all without the help of some very special people out there – you know who you are! Each night we were surrounded by good vibes with delicious food in our bellies and comfortable beds to rest our weary heads! Needless to say, we’re already working on return plans for next year!! Stay tuned!
Now that we are back home though folks, it is time to move forward and embrace the many changes that life brings. With that we must say farewell to one friend and welcome another. Our recent guest vocalist and dance machine Ms. Sandra Love will be stepping off the Dirty Bourbon train and a one Mr. Nick Garrison will climbing aboard. Nick is a tremendous trombonist and really just an all around cool dude. We enjoy his playing and his company and are sure you will too. As for Ms Love, well first we want to express how grateful we are for all the good times and the great times! She’ll be dancing and singing herself crazy down here in New Orleans. If you come visit, maybe look her up!
BUT WAIT!!!! THERE’S MORE!!
Lots more in fact, for we have a BIG SUMMER TOUR in the works! A summer filled with two months of nonstop Dirty Bourbon music and revelry! Big festivals, bacon festivals, and more and more club dates being booked everyday! Yes folks we’ve got a BIG SUMMER TOUR planned that’ll take us back to familiar territory and unfamiliar too! North Carolina, Colorado, Michigan, and Wyoming to name a few! We’ve already posted some of our dates so check the calendar and start spreading the word!!
DIRTY BOURBON IS COOKING UP SOME MOUTH WATERING,SPINE TINGLING SH!T Y’ALL!
The concert will take place in Washington D.C. at The Hamilton!! It’ll be our debut at this fine venue, and we can barely contain our excitement!
Mr. Bradley’s music has been close to us since the beginning of our band. We listened to him constantly while we were at Loyola when his first album, “No Time for Dreaming,” came out. We were fortunate enough to see him live in Chicago at Millennium Park, and that was an unforgettable concert. He had jumped off stage and hugged each one of us! (We had shown up early to get front row seats)
And now folks, we have the proudest of pleasures to open up for a man who epitomizes what it means to be a true champion of love and perseverance. If you’ve never heard of him or his music please take some time and do so!
