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.

Bio: The Dirty Bourbon River Show is a gypsy folk circus rock band from New Orleans. Drawing from a rich diversity of musical backgrounds – with 4 musicians playing a revolving set of instruments and a ringmaster – the Dirty Bourbon River Show has been catching America’s eye with its wild, wayward music.
"The excellent offering [Volume One] aptly captures the crazed, carnival atmosphere and foolhardy banter that have made them [DBRS] fast favorites on the New Orleans indie front, and in addition to the infectious and outlandish shenanigans, there are plenty of welcomed surprises."
