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!
Man, still resting up after this past weekend’s CD release run. Had so much fun, met some new people, and saw some old friends. Have you checked out the new record yet? It’s available pretty much everywhere for only $9.99:
Tell your friends, tell your mama, we’re real proud of this one. We’ll be touring it all around America this summer, which I’ll tell you about in the minute.
In the meantime, what’s going on for Dirty Bourbon? What are we up to as of late? What’ve we got for that big ol’ horizon up ahead? Well, I’ll tell ya:
For the rest of this month we won’t be playing any shows. We’ll be training our new bari sax player – Matt “Slyfox” Thomas – and finish writing the songs for Volume III (our next album – the Old-Timey Afropop Gibberish Junction – is already written & tracked, just finishing up overdubs & mixing). Then, in May, we’ll kick off on the 5th for a super duper Cinco de Mayo partay with Glasgow & Vox & the Hound, followed by a month long tour on the eastern seaboard to support the release of Volume II – catch us with Blair Cimmins, Megan Jean & Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Then, come summertime, nother big NOLA show, then back to the east coast for another month. Then, this fall, we’ll be heading west to Colorado for another month tour! And then, we’ll come back home & release our 4th album – Old-Timey Afropop Gibberish Junction. Expect Volume III sometime around spring 2012.
So yup, we’ve got a lot of big things planned for the future.
And don’t forget – tell everyone you know about the new album! This beast’s spreading like wildfire, let’s keep that fire hot.
