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 9 studio albums and played over 900 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 Big 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, trombone), Matt Thomas (vocals, tenor and baritone saxophone, clarinet), Nick Garrison (vocals, trombone, piano), Jimmy Williams (bass, sousaphone, flute) and Scott Graves (vocals, drums, percussion).
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 10th studio album “The Flying Musical Circus”.
Dr. Bacon is a party band blending incredibly diverse instrumentation with equally diverse musical genres. Dr. Bacon features acoustic, electric and resonator guitars, harmonica, bass, saxophone, trombone, percussion, vocal harmonies and more. This instrumentation allows the band to play everything from bluegrass standards and originals to classic 90's hits, drunken shanties and raucous party tunes to beautifully intricate ballads and instrumentals. The Dr. Bacon live experience is truly a musical spectacle. Bringing the audience on a musical journey that lulls and spikes in energy, caressing ears with lush musical beauty and whipping crowds into a tribal down-home romp, often within the same song. The sheer diversity ensures that no matter what genre of music you identify with most, you will hear something that resonates.
