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!
Here’s a link to the Kickstarter:
KICKSTARTER – DBRS
Oh, an isn’t this amazing?:
If you’ve been sitting around wondering – “Hey, you know I wish those Dirty Bourbs would release some new material already!! It’s not enough they have all that music (on Bandcamp and iTunes)!!”
Well guess what?? We got something for you!!
The good folks over at Daytrotter Studios have posted up our session, as well as a magical illustration of yours truly!!
Now, if you’re digging those 4 new tracks and are curious as to when the next album is coming out, well guess what?? You can decide – sort of!!
As you may know we are in the middle of raising money for our Kickstarter which will go to producing our next album!! We have the music, a great title and a vision for our cover – all we need is more MONEY (and support and love and kind words)!!
So… While you’re listening to our Daytrotter session, make your way over to our Kickstarter page and put some money in the box-ah (for a sweet prize)!!

Mixing is all done! All that is left is the mastering. Once the mastering is done, the only thing left to do is pressing. Almost there! Now for something completely different…
here is a picture of Jimmy that a badass little kid made!
The first round of mixing is complete! After a day of working in the studio, Wes, Noah, and Bootsy are getting the album ready for mastering. We’re almost there! And now without further ado, the most beautiful nurse in St. Augustine, FL, Kat!
After all the instrumental beds and overdubs were complete, Wes, Noah, and Boots went back into the studio to mix the new tracks. Since watching three guys sitting in chairs for hours on end isn’t very exciting, here are some cool murals from the Mirliton Festival site in the Bywater!
We’ve finished up all of the instrumental beds for the new album! It was great getting back into the studio and working with Wes, one of the best recording engineers around New Orleans. We’re really looking forward to how this new one turns out. Stay tuned for more updates.
Day five is over! We returned to Piety after a day of rest and finished up the instrument overdubs and started laying down vocals. Things are coming together nicely.
Day four is over. We’re done with most of the overdubs! We have been working really hard so we are taking a day off. We start vocals and finishing touches Tuesday.
Day three is over! We finished tracking all the songs for Vol. IV. Nothing left except for instrument overdubs and vocals. It’s getting close…
Day two is over! We made some more progress and knocked out a few new tunes. Things are looking good.
