The show is over and we are on the road to New Orleans. We have been away for a long time. It feels good to head back home.
For our last day in Colorado we decided to hike up to Inspiration Point, an 11,200 foot mountain on the outskirts of Creede. Once we got up there, we caught our breath and blasted some brass band music over the entire town. Colorado is a beautiful and wonderful place. We are sad to be leaving but we will definitely be back. Thank you Colorado!
Show tonight in Boulder, CO at the Southern Sun. Details here.
Show details for our New Orleans Homecoming Show (it’s been 2 months!) released today. It’ll be at the Maison on the 30th w/ some very special guests – peep the fbook event here.

Midnight: E Company ~ NOLA Jazz Soul Funk to bring you to the moon. Also a quintet, and just as dynamically heavy as the first 2 acts, E Company packs memorizing melodies with tight, intricate beats and fat syncopated grooves that put a smile on your face and a stranger’s hand firmly on your ass.
Do not miss this shit. These three amazing bands will light you the fuck up. Come get some.

Good times in Jackson, MS last night. But so much has happened since then and when we last talked. Hmm, let’s see… where to begin?
The six of us (Me’n’Charlie’n’Bootsy’n’Jimmy’n’Matt & Clay) arrived homeless back in New Orleans at the end of June from our S/SE tour. Bootsy left for Europe for a month, and the remaining five of us found a nice, cheap, big place in the Marigny to lay low for a while. We now live at 1234 Fake St:
We’ve been getting by, hustlin’, bustlin’ & busking (catch us today in Jackson Square and on Frenchmen late afternoonish, getting a slow start) & playing club gigs when we can pick up a drummer (Dave Shirley from E Company has been a godsend ringer). Catch us at Moe’s BBQ in Daphne, AL this Friday, and at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen Street this Saturday with E Company and the Alex McMurray Band. This show is going to kill…
Also, we’ve picked up a manager – the venerable miss Jaime Coggins. From Holy Ghost Tent Revival (of whom she also manages) to P-funk to Jaco Pastorius to Roberta Fleck, her taste is direct and without falter, and her judgment – keen and sharp like Japanese folded steel. She’ll be handling most of our business end from now on, I’ve updated our contact section should you need to contact her regarding gigs, private parties for the Queen of Atlantis, etc. Here’s a little Leonard Cohen / Dr. Dog mash-up to honor our new union:
Looking forward, we’ve got some big things planned for the rest of the summer. Bootsy gets back from Europe at the beginning of next month, and then the 6 of us will be hitting the road hard (check the sidebar for dates ->) – got another South/Southeast tour (TX, LA, MS, AL, TN, FL, SC, NC, VA) this August, then, come September, we’re headed to Colorado…
Big things in the horizon my friends…
It’s a funny thing, how life moves at such an incredible pace.

P.S. Our 4th album is fully recorded and currently being mastered by Bhob Rainey (who also did Volume Two, a true gentlemen of sound). Me’n’Charlie just finished hand-drawing the cover art ourselves this weekend. Peep it:
Tonight prepare yourselves for the best damn free show you’ll see on Frenchmen all summer long. Hosted by the Maison de la Music & Openhouse Music, It’s going a little something like this:
10 pm (Front Stage)
Megan Jean & the KFB. Guit, upright, stompbox, banjo & washboard-slangin’ Charleston Gothic Blues duo. This shit will kick your ass.
11 pm (Back Stage)
Back (literally, today) from a month long tour of the S & SE, Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. New, unheard songs, burlesque interlude, fire, whiskey pours & more, it’s going down tonight ladies & gents.
Midnight (Front Stage)Atlanta, GA’s Blair Crimmins & the Hookers. Variety Hour Dixieland rock – stuff that makes you boogie. Don’t miss this one folks. The Maison (508 Frenchmen), 10pm tonight – and best of all, the show is free.
Yur damn right.
