Dirty Bourbon River Show
The Dirty Bourbon River Show deftly melds sounds that range from hard-edged blues to Lisztian piano driven ballads to New Orleans brass into a result that is truly a blast of new energy into the musical landscape. Dirty Bourbon grabs hold of audiences, fascinated by their eccentricity and dexterity coupled with their ability to harken back to by-gone eras in music.Since forming in early 2009, the Dirty Bourbon River Show has released 6 studio albums and played over 500 live shows, fast earning them a stellar reputation for their tight, multi-faceted 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.
The Dirty Bourbon River Show is comprised of Noah Adams (vocals, piano, guitar, accordion, trumpet), Charles “Big Charlie” Skinner (vocals, trombone, wind toys), Matt Thomas (vocals, tenor, bari and Mississippi saxophone, clarinet), Jimmy Williams (bass, sousaphone) and Dane “Bootsy” Schindler (drums).
Their albums and live shows (both heavily intertwined) pair exuberant, syncopated lyrics with complex, harmony-rich songwriting and orchestration. They switch instruments mid-show (sometimes even mid-song), they all sing (except the drummer, of course), and they all have a penchant for theatrics (fireballs, group chants and stomps, whiskey pours – whatever the imagination calls for).
The Dirty Bourbon River Show is currently preparing for the release of their 7th studio album – Volume Four – and their national television debut at the 2013 Radio Television Correspondents Dinner in Washington this June.
“Jesus Christ. The best band in the world” – Chris Bopst, Original Founding Bassist for GWAR
“Genetically theatrical… appetite-whetting… a snow-globe carnival segueing seamlessly from kazoo- and clarinet-blown circus shenanigans to smooth-croon lounge, and finely fingered folk ballads to banjo hoedowns, jazzy sax solos and staccato piano jams” – Noah Bonaparte-Pais, Gambit Weekly
“Riotous… racuous… swashbuckling sea chanteys, paranoid polkas, and carnival jazz, often in the same song… now that’s my kind of party!” – Aaron Lafont, Groovescapes
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 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.
In May 2014 they released their debut album “On Our Way” produced by Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth. The album allowed the band to share the composite of their time together. The record incorporates harmonizing voices, fantastic instrumentation, and great solos.
