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!
I’m trying to count up how many times we’ve performed in Asheville, that’s including busking as well, and we just can’t be sure anymore. We’ve been back so many times it feels like a home away from home. We’ve had the opportunity to play around the city at different bars, clubs, corners, and brew halls, and tonight we’re adding a new spot to the list.
We’re excited to make our debut in such a beautiful place and hope you can join us!
We are also incredibly thrilled to officially announce that our total amount raised for our Kickstarter project is exactly $10,600. To everyone who shared, supported and donated, we did it, folks! But really you did it, and in return we, along with Craig and everyone at The Living Room, will sweat and bleed to give you the best record we can. You have opened a huge door for us, and we’re gonna be charging through with guns blazing!
Today is the final day folks. Less than 18 hrs to go on our Kickstarter campaign. Now – more than any other time – is the time for you to step up and become a part of this awesome project! We’ve poured so much love into writing, drafting and demoing these songs, selecting the perfect producer and professional studio, putting all our cards on the line for this new album – join us! Let’s do it together! Whether it’s $500 or just $5, do what you can, and together let’s make the dopest album ever – let’s break DBRS into the mainstream – and without the help of nefarious record companies and industry hacks telling us what to do. Let’s do it ourselves.
We dit it!!!! We’ve hit our $10,000 goal with 64 hours to go! But we’re not done yet ladies and gentlemen! Our budget has become clearer now that we’ve signed on a producer (Craig Schumacher) and scheduled professional studio time (Living Room Studio, New Orleans, LA) and all things considered, this project is going to cost us about $20,000 start to finish. We’re fully prepared to put in whatever we have to ourselves (we don’t have much) but we’d like to see if we could raise just a little more here on Kickstarter in these final few hours…
And so, if we can hit $12,000 here on Kickstarter before early Friday morning, then we’ll pledge to you to record this album on tape and do a vinyl release of it as well. Meeting with Craig and reviewing the equipment at The Living Room, he’s really excited to do some bussing to tape and treat it like a record, but tape & vinyl costs mucho money, and we just can’t do it in our current state…
But – if we can hit $12,000 here – then we can – and we will! So, it’s up to you folks… wanna see a vinyl version of this new album? Then let’s push just a little further… only $2,000 more to go – let’s do it!!!!
Oh, and we’ve reduced the $5,000 package to just 2 grand. For 2 grand you could have the Dirty Bourbon River Show perform in your house. Or your bar. Or your son’s bar mitzvah. Think about it.
We’re getting down to serious crunch time here folks… We have less than 76 hours to raise $2,410 dollars for our Kickstarter Campaign, and if we don’t, according to Kickstarter Guidelines, we won’t get any of the money! We’re so close (3/4’s of the way there) but yet so far, and so we need your help now more than ever…
Want to take your commitment to the music of DBRS to the next level? If so, you should explore our $500 donation option – which comes with all sorts of cool rewards – Backstage access to a Dirty Bourbon concert, lots of hand signed swagger, songs before the album even drops, all sorts of amazing stuff. There are only three of these rewards available, and 1 has already been taken.
If you are in such a position, please consider this donation amount. If we can get 2 $500 donors before the end of the night, we’ll be at 85%! As the night ends and we get dangerously close, this would be so so cool…
Watching that ticker tick… Let’s do this good people!!!! Here is the link:
We need your help! Yes, you!!! We have only 4 days left to go on our Kickstarter campaign to raise $2,715, or we won’t get any of the money! If you haven’t yet, please check out our project HERE and come be a part of something awesome! Now is the time! Crunch time baby! Let’s make it happen!
PS Next three backers of $50 or more will get a free vinyl shipped to them tomorrow. Do it!
Yes folks it has been done. Thirty-five years and 813 pieces later, Mark Temperato, who goes by the stage name RevM, has built the world’s largest drum kit!
Some of the parts are as far as seven or eight feet away from each other, but he’s able to hit each piece from his throne, which is impossible to see from the front.
…I can’t imagine how much money he’s spent….
I can keep track of how much money our Kickstart has raised…and as of now we are still behind schedule…we have 5 days to go folks, and we really need your help! We’ve got a producer and a studio all set…please continue your support and help us make this next album a reality!!
Noah would like to tell you all something about his guitar:
“This is my guitar. I have played her on the road for years. She earns my bread, keeps me clothed, keeps me fed, makes people dance, makes people happy. She is my baby.
“I am fortunate enough to spend my life playing this guitar with an amazing band some of you may have heard of – the Dirty Bourbon River Show. My band and I are currently trying to raise funds to record our next album, and we are way way behind… we have less than 10 days to raise $6,000, or we won’t meet our 10k goal, and wont get any of our funding….
“And so, to the next person out there that donates $1,000 to our project and brings us up to 50% funded, I will give you my guitar. Straight up. I’ll even clean her up, put some more dope-ass parts in, set her up, and string/tune her to your preferred action / gauge / etc and then you can have my baby. I’ve played her full time for over 3 years. And now, I want her to go to a good home.
How would you like a copy of our brand new limited edition hand-signed Dirty Bourbon River Show vinyl for free, delivered right to your door?
“Whaaaa?” you’re probably thinking… “What do I have to do?”
Its simple folks! Follow these 2 easy steps:
1) Visit our KICKSTARTER page. If you’ll notice, we’re only at 23%, and we only have 24 days to go :(… So, for the next 24 hrs only, if you pledge $50 or more to our cause, we’ll mail you copy of the vinyl this week. Shipping included. Not kidding. Oh, and you still get all the kick starter rewards too when the next album comes out (First edition pressing of the new album on CD + hand-signed letter of thanks + free sticker + digital download of a new song from the record [prior to public release]!) Now that’s a lot of swagger.
2) Once you’ve pledged $50 or more, simply visit our FACEBOOK PAGE and private message us your name, pledge amount, and the address you want your vinyl shipped to (lower 48 only, sorry folks).
Oh, and there’s one final catch: only the first 24 pledges will receive a vinyl!
24 hrs only! Happy pledging!!!
Love, The DIRTY BOURBON RIVER SHOW
UPDATE: as of 7:30pmCT, there are still vinyls to be claimed! Grab yours now before its too late!
