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.
It is time for yet another chapter in the rich and ever-transforming history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. On December 31st, 2013 we will be releasing our 8th studio album – “Accordion Anthology” – via digital download on our Bandcamp Site. A special edition 180 gram vinyl will follow. Produced by Buck Johnson and the Hootenanny Kid and recorded in New Orleans over a five year period at Piety St. Studios, The Music Shed and Loyola University, “Accordion Anthology” features a new accordion-based arrangement of one song from each of DBRS’s past studio albums, intertwined with new, unheard, unreleased material.

To accompany its release we will be performing a special live show on NYE at the Maison on Frenchmen St in New Orleans – We’ll hit at 10pm and play until the New Year comes. Following a special ball dropping countdown ceremony, guests to follow include fellow New Orleanian gypsy stomp mafia band Debauche and annual host DJ Jubilee. VIP Balcony Tickets and more information Here.

Fulfilling our promise of releasing 2 LP’s a year for our 1st four years as a band, this 8th studio album and the accompanying live show at the Maison marks yet another great achievement in the history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. We can’t wait to share it with you. Ad Astera per Apera.

Hello folks! Hope everyone stuffed their faces yesterday – I know we all did. Now that Thanksgiving’s past I figured we’d give you a little update for how we’ll be finishing off the year…
Throughout the rest of November we’ll be finishing overdubbing Volume Three at the Music Shed here in New Orleans. Then, come December, while Vol. III’s shipped off for mixing and mastering, we’ll be hitting the road once again for a few little short trips here and there, East and West… Six new showdates just posted + more to come! —–>
Oh, and this Sunday we’ll be making a big little announcement with a whole host of prizes available for those who participate.
We have strings! Today we invited my old orchestra buddies James Hausmann, Sam Craft and Jack Craft to record some overdubs. This session was incredibly fun. The string parts sound fantastic. This is going to be a great record.
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re into day 3 at the Music Shed, and already laid the bed tracks for every song! To regale with our studio escapades, we bring you more pictures, including Big Charlie’s rendition of the Fat Samurai!
