With this turning of the year, it is finally time to say goodbye to a dear friend and founding member – the one, the only – Dane “Bootsy” Schindler”:
Bootsy will be handing over his sticks to another very young and talented drummer, a one Mr. Scott Graves:
Bootsy’s been there since the beginning, and it will be incredibly tough to see him go. But he’s gonna guide Scott into a new chapter with us, and I know Scott will be a killer replacement:
Many big things coming this year. Stay tuned. Ad Astera per Aspera.

Okay folks, it’s a been a while, hell it’s been months. But worry not because not only do we have BIG things coming, but I’ve been doing some serious record collecting. So let’s get into it!
As you know Mother’s Day just passed, and boy do I have so much to be grateful for because of my Mom. However, today’s record comes not from her y’all, but from my Aunt Pat. She had stored away a box of records in her garage and my little cousin just happened to discover them on Sunday. 10 years they’ve been sitting in there! Well, my Aunt is one of the coolest women I’ve ever known, and without a second thought said, “Have em!” I mean we’re talking Beatles, Elton John, Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Al Hirt, and today’s record choice – “Mister Naugahyde”himself, the Emperor of the Universe – Mr Ernie K Doe!!
Now you wanna learn some New Orleans music history, y’all? Read up about this man cause he’s about as good as it gets when it comes to New Orleans characters and entertainers. I’m serious too. LEARN ABOUT HIM. He was a a true New Orleans native with swagger that will never be matched y’all. From his singing to his time as a local DJ on WWOZ, he never failed to wow and stun listeners.
My Aunt Pat gifted me with his music this past weekend, and I’m still giddy that I own this record. So now I’m sharing it with you because damn it’s just so good when you can hold a piece of your hometown’s musical history in your hands and listen to it and share it with others.

Love Your Mommas and Keep Listening.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It has been a strange and wonderful adventure thus far in the Dirty Bourbon River Show! So much has happened and there is so little space and time with which to explain it all.
When we last left off, our heroes had just flown across the world for what would be a most victorious trip overseas. The band, trimmed down to just a 4piece, performed in some of the coolest and most absolutely beautiful places that the Swiss region had to offer. To quote Bill Murray, “We came, we saw, and we kicked it’s ass!” But seriously folks, it was an amazing feeling to not only be so well received but to also be so well taken care of. We truly couldn’t have done it all without the help of some very special people out there – you know who you are! Each night we were surrounded by good vibes with delicious food in our bellies and comfortable beds to rest our weary heads! Needless to say, we’re already working on return plans for next year!! Stay tuned!
Now that we are back home though folks, it is time to move forward and embrace the many changes that life brings. With that we must say farewell to one friend and welcome another. Our recent guest vocalist and dance machine Ms. Sandra Love will be stepping off the Dirty Bourbon train and a one Mr. Nick Garrison will climbing aboard. Nick is a tremendous trombonist and really just an all around cool dude. We enjoy his playing and his company and are sure you will too. As for Ms Love, well first we want to express how grateful we are for all the good times and the great times! She’ll be dancing and singing herself crazy down here in New Orleans. If you come visit, maybe look her up!
BUT WAIT!!!! THERE’S MORE!!
Lots more in fact, for we have a BIG SUMMER TOUR in the works! A summer filled with two months of nonstop Dirty Bourbon music and revelry! Big festivals, bacon festivals, and more and more club dates being booked everyday! Yes folks we’ve got a BIG SUMMER TOUR planned that’ll take us back to familiar territory and unfamiliar too! North Carolina, Colorado, Michigan, and Wyoming to name a few! We’ve already posted some of our dates so check the calendar and start spreading the word!!
DIRTY BOURBON IS COOKING UP SOME MOUTH WATERING, SPINE TINGLING SH!T Y’ALL!
