It has just been confirmed y’all, we will be opening up for the “Screamin’ Eagle of Soul,” Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires on New Years Eve!!
The concert will take place in Washington D.C. at The Hamilton!! It’ll be our debut at this fine venue, and we can barely contain our excitement!
Mr. Bradley’s music has been close to us since the beginning of our band. We listened to him constantly while we were at Loyola when his first album, “No Time for Dreaming,” came out. We were fortunate enough to see him live in Chicago at Millennium Park, and that was an unforgettable concert. He had jumped off stage and hugged each one of us! (We had shown up early to get front row seats)
And now folks, we have the proudest of pleasures to open up for a man who epitomizes what it means to be a true champion of love and perseverance. If you’ve never heard of him or his music please take some time and do so!
This is will be an incredible time y’all!!
Today is the final day folks. Less than 18 hrs to go on our Kickstarter campaign. Now – more than any other time – is the time for you to step up and become a part of this awesome project! We’ve poured so much love into writing, drafting and demoing these songs, selecting the perfect producer and professional studio, putting all our cards on the line for this new album – join us! Let’s do it together! Whether it’s $500 or just $5, do what you can, and together let’s make the dopest album ever – let’s break DBRS into the mainstream – and without the help of nefarious record companies and industry hacks telling us what to do. Let’s do it ourselves.

The Dirty Bourbon River Show
P.S. Headlining night one of the Big What? Festival in Mebance, NC tonight! Midnight! Hope to see you there!
Tonight marks the Dirty Bourbon River Show’s 200th show. It’s gonna be a special one; we’re playing a co-bill with our dear friends the Howdies. Ever heard of them?
The Howdies are a 4 piece dark bluesrock outfit tinged with rockabilly, punk, and the sounds of spaghetti westerns. They are 100% Louisiana made with 100% pure lightning, and we have done many shows with them in multiple cities/states before. Dig it:
Show starts at 8pm sharp at the Blue Moon Saloon in Lafayette, LA. IT’S GONNA BE A FUCKING PARTY.
200 Shows. Dig it:
Yeah, it gets pretty wild from here on out…
Here it is! The Free Love EP, a love story told in three acts. Don’t let the title deceive you, it’s not all about free love. it is a love EP that is free. Free as in there is no cost to make this newest hot slice of Dirty Bourbon magic yours to play at will. Go download it on our bandcamp site, cuddle up next to whomever it is you call yours and press play.
Also, it is Big Charlie’s birthday today, (yes this was all planned to happen in conjunction with our ringleader adding another year of wisdom under his belt), so if you happen to come to our show tonight (also Free) at Banks Street Bar located 4401 Banks Street NOLA give Charlie a holler, it would make his birthday.

Land of the free, right? We’re free to work and live as we please. We can live in any neighborhood, work any job, love whomever we choose. However this freedom is not free. And I don’t mean that in necessarily the same way your typical chart topping country act means it. I mean that the citizenry has worked for and earned it. Freedom is a right that is earned by tireless work and an unwavering focus on one goal. Freedom. So that we can walk the streets as we choose, buy and sell as we choose. But why work for freedom? Why push ourselves so hard to have the life we want for ourselves?
