We got a real special one today, my absolute favorite so far. After our second set at Blissfest, we were charged with heading the Children’s 2nd Line Parade. Right before we were supposed to start, a little badass came up to me and told me she wanted to play my horn. I was excited to see what she could do and she did not disappoint. She has some mighty lungs in that tiny frame. Without further ado, it is my utmost pleasure to introduce to you, the most adorable dancer/ukulele player/budding tubist, Zoë!
P.S. Gig tonight at Bastille Days Festival in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Come join us at the Cathedral Square Stage. Show starts at 7.
What’s up everyone!? Man oh man have we been having an absolutely amazing time up here in Michigan! The shows have been going great, and our time in between has been excellent too. We’ve been able to visit some of the most beautiful lakes and local hang out spots, and we’ve got plenty of good memories and photos to take home with us!
Legs Inn Bar
Flint Field Horse Park
Yeah y’all, it’s been beautiful to say the least, and tonight is our last night in Michigan! So if you’re in the Three Rivers area, come join us at the Riviera Theatre tonight! We’ll be kicking things off at 8pm! Tickets are $10 at the door so get in early and get you some good seats!
Also, it has come to our attention that we need more fun, fan shot media. So if you’ve got some videos/photos from the Dirty Bourbon River Show, share it with us!!
This gem comes from our friend Corrie G. in Lansing! Thanks Corrie and well done!
While we’re next to all this clear water in Michigan, the horns felt it necessary to record this quick bit in a lake. Charlie Parker’s Donna Lee for yo ass!
Today, with our stomaches swirling around all that delicious beer from Short’s Brewery, we make our way over to Williamsburg, MI (near Traverse City). Tonights hit is at Flint Fields Horse Park and Farm 7-10pm. Lets hope these horses know how to party as much as this guy:
Ladies and gents,
Tonight continue our stint in Michigan for a night of beer and revelry at the Short’s Brewing Co. We had a blast here last summer, and we plan on bringing the party once again! We’ll be kicking off 2 full sets of goodness at 8pm, and it’s FREE! Come get grab a pint or five of great local brew and shake yr ass with DBRS. Now, here’s a drunk baby… probably not far from what we looked like after our show last time…
Glenn Miller: Basso Profundo, Grammy winner, Not the Trombonist/Jazz Composer, Capable of shaking the ground with the power of his voice alone.
Growing up singing in choir, Glenn was relegated to support roles, unable to sing leads because his voice was simply too manly for the leads.
As he grew up and more people discovered the power of his voice, he quickly became an in demand Basso Profundo. His absolutely ridiculous range allowed him to sing notes most mere mortals can only dream of. In his 2015 Grammy winning recording of a Russian Eastern Orthodox Church standard, Do not reject me in my old age, Glenn sang the super low Contra G!
Glenn Miller is a true badass with a voice worthy of the title Basso Profundo. What I would give to have a voice like that…
P.S. We’re at Blissfest in Harbor Springs, Michigan today and tomorrow! Our first set starts at 8.
Yeah buddy!! We had a most excellent night yesterday in Chicago! Schubas was jumping last night thanks to everyone who came out and partied with us!!
Today, we’re heading out to beautiful and magnificent Michigan to rock the walls at the Tip Top deluxe in Grand Rapids tonight with Chuck Whiting and the Tip Rail Ramblers!!
We’re excited to be in Michigan for the next week with plenty of awesome shows coming up so check the calendar and spread the word!!
First show back after a little 4th of July breather, we kick off the rest of the month tonight at Schuba’s in Chicago. We love this city, and we’re happy to move up the chain of venues to this respectable establishment. Ladies bring ya fellas, it’s Thursday, we know you’re thirsty. Check our support for the night, introducing The Claudettes!
Suzy got blown off stage by a strong gust of wind in Crested Butte, CO and she landed on her bell. It really sucked, but it could have been much worse.We had a few days off back home so I got my horn fixed by Stafford Agee, trombonist for Rebirth Brass Band and an excellent human being. I can’t thank him enough for taking time out of his very busy schedule to help make Suzy whole again.
Step One: Hit it with a hammer.
Step 2: Roll out dents
Step 3: Magnetic dent removal
So much better. Stafford is the man. Now it’s time to get to Chicago.
Ladies and gents,
Tonight we return to Lamberts in Austin to round out the June leg of our 2016 Summer Tour! Doors are at 9:30, and 2 solid sets of music with yours truly kick off at 10pm.
Can’t wait to knock out another great show in Austin, then kick back for a few days in the good ol’ Dirty Dirty! See you next month on 7/7 in Chicago at Schuba’s!
Until then, sit back, relax, and enjoy a simpler time when stuff like this was mainstream music…….
