Dirty Bourbon River Show
"A circus-like barrage of sound serving as entrance music for a magical mystery tour of whiskey-soaked French Quarter back alleys," â€“ Rory Callais, Offbeat
"Genetically theatricalâ€¦ appetite-whettingâ€¦ a snow-globe carnival segueing seamlessly from kazoo- and clarinet-blown circus shenanigans to smooth-croon lounge, jazzy sax solos and staccato piano jams" â€“ Noah Bonaparte-Pais, Gambit Weekly
"A rangy dreadlocked Jesus-esque cat in a black suit sported a massive Sousaphone as he laid down the bass linesâ€¦ One fellow moved from arch-top guitar to accordion to trumpet as the set progressedâ€¦ Brazen vocals, slippery sweet drumming and a horn attack like we've never seenâ€¦ Please come back boys," â€“ Craig Havighurst, Nashville Music City Roots
"Jesus Christ. The best band in the world," â€“ Chris Bopst, Original Founding Bassist for GWAR
Since forming in early 2009, the Dirty Bourbon River Show has released 5 studio albums and played over 400 live shows, fast earning them a solid reputation for their tight, diverse sound and high-energy performances. They can be found bringing their blend of "New Orleans Gypsy Brass Circus Rock" all over the USA, performing at festivals and respected venues year-round.
â€¨â€¨The Dirty Bourbon River Show is comprised of Noah Adams (vocals, piano, guitar, accordion, trumpet), Charles "Big Charlie" Skinner (vocals, trombone, wind toys), Matt "Slyfox" Thomas (vocals, tenor, bari and Mississippi saxophone, clarinet), Jimmy Williams (bass, sousaphone) and Dane "Bootsy" Schindler (drums).
Their fifth studio album, Volume Three, continues to push the boundaries of modern-day music, pairing reflective, syncopated lyrics with complex, harmony-rich songwriting. As a full-time touring quintet of highly versed multi-instrumentalists, the Dirty Bourbon River Show strives to change the way we think and feel about music.
The Brummy Brothers
Bluegrass music inspired by the people, experiences, and scenery of the American Northeast. The Brummy Brothers blend traditional styles, modern influences, and improvisation.
Their music is high energy, uplifting and surprisingly eclectic. Their use of varied tempos, textures, and vocal harmonies creates a sonic soundscape that is unique and appealing.
In January 2012, Andrew Morris (Guitar) and Russell Gottlieb (Banjo) joined brothers Dave (Standup bass) and Eric Brumberg (Mandolin) to form The Brummy Brothers. The four band mates write original bluegrass and jam grass music and tour heavily throughout the Northeast.
Their already strong following is quickly expanding along with their touring regions. Clubs, bars, and other various venues cannot wait to get The Brummy Bros into their establishments. Within their first year on the scene, The Brummy Brothers have already made a strong impression on the festival circuit as well, performing at several small festivals.
Fans just can't wait to, "Shake their BRUM!"
