When we bought the van in 2012, it had 34 miles on it. Now we’re over 200,000!

Hey errybody! Words can’t even describe how amazing the winter weather is down here in Florida… so I won’t even bother trying. Instead, here’s some snapshots of our time spent thus far in what is certainly one of the most unique states in the union:
Tonight we keep the party going with 3 sets of free music at Point Ybel Brewing Company in Fort Myers, FL. We’ll be playing 8 to late this evening so if you find yourselves with idle hands, fill them up with excellent beers and earnest cheers. See you out there!
Hey everybody! We got some cool news out of the DBRS camp this week, as yesterday saw us go live with our new street team effort. The ‘Dirty Bourbon Extended Family‘ (as it has been dubbed) serves to connect us with you awesome folks out there – some might call you the superfans- who are all about seeing, hearing, and supporting live music. Not only does it help us by creating a tight group of friends who can be our eyes and ears on the ground (helping us with flyers, social media sharing, etc), but it gives team members closer access to band news, merch discounts, and opportunities to score free schwag such as exclusive song downloads and tickets to DBRS shows.
If you are one of them folks who loves getting involved, loves supporting independent music, or even just loves being part of the team, please sign up! There’s no better way to stay up to date on the latest and greatest the DBRS has going. As a thanks for all who sign up, we’re hooking y’all up with a giveaway package – including an exclusive, otherwise out-of-print song download.

Otherwise, we’re excited to be playing in Knoxville tonight after a few days of amazing R&R in Wilmington, NC. The party’s at Barley’s tonight, where we’ll be playing 10pm-late. The show is free and the pizza is delicious. If you’re in the area, there no excuse for mission’ out!
Until the next time,
Damn y’all, last week was a great start to this September KUMITE! POW! POW! TOUR!! A big THANK YOU to everyone who took care of us in Nashville, Detroit and Milwaukee!! We had a blast and are looking forward to the weeks coming up. We’ve got plenty of dates in the Midwest just around the corner y’all, so check em out and spread the word. The Kumite! Pow! Pow! Tour is drop-kicking through a town near you!!
We are delighted to be playing ATOMGA’s first full length album release show! Denver’s own 10 piece afrobeat orchestra strives to make authentic, groovin’, socially conscious music that will keep your mind as busy as your hips. Also gracing the stage, Denver’s own Human Agency and Pete Pidgeon & Arcoda! Join us all at the Bluebird Theater in Denver for an night of music to remember. Show starts at 9.
Three truly amazing things ladies and gentlemen:
2) We have a new 6th member! Adam Lessnau will be joining us as a guest trombonist though the remainder of our Important Things Humans Should Know tour. The brass is booming big now baby. Come dig his chops tonight at the Foundry, or one of our other many tour dates on the left sidebar.
3) Noah’s 10 year beard is getting out of control. He’s only 9 months in, and it already covers bowties and has a tiny refrigerator cabinet were he keeps a conservative assortment of 8 oz sodas. Somebody make it stop…
Beyond excited about my recent score at Guitar Center. This stylish baby comes with a matching bag and stretchy mouth piece. I’m gonna use her for practice while on the road. I think I’ll call her Bessie.
In other news we play tonight in Cambridge Massachusetts at the Lizard Lounge. Doors 8:30, show starts at 9:30. It’s gonna be a great night.
