What’s up y’all? The sun is shining and it’s looking like another beautiful day in Colorado, and I’ve got a stack of new records on my lap.
Yeah y’all, it’s been a good haul so far, there’s more too but I don’t have enough lap space! I’m excited about all of em too but especially for that ZZ Top record – it’s a live one from their concert in New
Orleans at The Warehouse!
Tonight we’re in gorgeous Gold Hill and performing at the Gold Hill Inn! Showtime is 9pm! It’s sure to be a hot and sweaty one! See y’all there!
Tonight the Dirty Bourbon River Show kicks off our Colorado tour in the beautiful mountain town of Gold Hill.
We drove straight up the dirt road side of a mountain and plunged straight into downtown. As we walked into the venue, a collective “Wahhh!” rang out amongst the band as we saw this hanging up behind the stage:
As it turns out, this town was not only home to, but was once presided over by a New Orleans music legend. That’s right, in the late 70s, New Orleans’ favorite washboard player was the mayor of a beautiful Colorado mountain town!
Washboard Chaz is a monster of a musician and a joy to be around, Dirty Bourbon has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with him and the Tin Men (our favorite trio ever) numerous times in New Orleans.
So come on out to the Gold Hill Inn and help us bring New Orleans back to Gold Hill, and pay tribute to our friend who’s hundreds of miles away!
Show starts around 9:00 right in the middle of town at the historic Gold Hill Inn
