Three truly amazing things ladies and gentlemen:
1) We’re playing in Athens, GA tonight at the Foundry as part of our Important Things Humans Should Know CD release tour. Grab your tickets here. Show starts at 8pm – we’re playing 2 sets.
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.

We’re back on the road and ready to hit it hard. Our tour starts of in beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida at The Ale & The Witch. Show starts at 9.

Here is a exclusive stream of the opening track “Ezmerelda”, courtesy of our good friends over at 9Bullets.net:

Here is the tracklisting:
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:
We’re back at one of our favorite places in South Carolina, the Pour House in Charleston! The night will start off with the B.B. Creeps at 9:45, Dirty Bourbon kicks off at 11. It’s going to be a good time. As always, Bill Murray, we put you on the guest list.
After a some much loved time off, we’re getting back on the road for a little run through the South (we’re trying to get as much Sun as we can before January..)
Up first… You guessed it – Jackson, Mississippi!!
C’mon out to the Iron Horse Grill to spend an evening with yours truly! We’ll be playing 3 sets tonight from 9 to 12, so make sure you get there with enough to get some grub and a brew or two!
We’ve got plenty of dates this month so check the calendar and spread the word!!
Yup, that’s right folks! The Dirty Bourbon River Show is coming to Knoxville tonight! Get your dancing shoes on ’cause we’re hitting the stage at Barley’s Taproom at 10pm for 2 sets of pure unadulterated wildness. Come get some.
Ladies and gentlemen,
I thought about it for a while, and figured you beautiful people might find some of the random moments in our camp entertaining/interesting/revealing, so I’ve decided to start grabbing little snippets of our adventures around the country and in NOLA and sharing them with you. Let me know how you like it! A little piece of the DBRS world from the perspective of yours truly…
Also, tonight we return to Albuquerque’s own Low Spirits! The show kicks off at 10 pm with a night of whiskey-drenched musical goodness. Come do your Saturday right!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The touring lifestyle is a roller coaster ride full of ups and downs, which requires patience and grit to get through the trials between the good times. Sometimes you’re flat broke; sometimes you have to sleep on tile/concrete/wooden floors; sometimes you spend mind-numbing, endless hours in the van to play a new city, and sometimes the whiskey is gone… The payoffs, though, can sometimes be so rewarding that your decision to do this whole, crazy godddamned thing is validated a hundred times over!
Yesterday was one of those days, my friends. We left Cambridge early to play our little hearts out at the sold out Green River Festival in Greenfield, MA, and had the time of our lives! We were honored to share the bill with greats like Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Norah Jones, the James Hunter Six, and our personal heroes, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band!
We played our set to a great audience, second line paraded a bunch of cardboard fish-bearing children and parents around the grounds, and sat in with the Dirty Dozen! We had such a good time that we decided to share some pics from the festivities with you. The tour is kicking off right, and we’ve still got almost 2 more months of shows to do, so keep your eyes out! We’re coming for ya.
Ah, what a day. We aren’t done with the northeast just yet, though!
Tonight we’ll be debuting at Rochester, NY’s Lovin’ Cup with the talented Amanda Ashley! The doors open at 6, and Amanda Ashley kicks things off at 7. Come make our last night in the northeast for this chunk of tour a party!
This evening we’ll be going on into the Wolf Hills (as named by frontiersmen Daniel Boone after a wolf encounter) to come be a part of the Abingdon Blues and Funk Festival. Its free, and the music kicks off at 6pm with Jesse Dee, and then DBRS’ll close out night round eight. It’s gonna be a street par-tay.
Less than 2 weeks to go on our Kickstarter! Only at 37% 😦 ~ We were hoping to be at at least 50% by now, as we’re already 3/4’s of the way through the campaign… if we don’t meet the goal, we don’t get the money! Please check it out, help us make this record! Passing the tip jar round at shows now, gotta make it happen, spread the word y’all, gotta lot of good tunes going on this next one! We’ll be sure to play a bunch of ‘me tonight too!
