Folk Bands and Artists
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 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 (?reballs, group chants and stomps, whiskey pours – whatever the imagination calls for).
“A circus-like barrage of sound serving as entrance music for a magical mystery tour of whiskey-soaked French Quarter back alleys,” – Rory Callais, OffBeat
“Genetically theatrical… appetite-whetting… a snow-globe carnival segueing seamlessly from kazoo- and clarinet-blown circus shenanigans to smooth-croon lounge, jazzy sax solos and staccato piano jams” – Noah Bonaparte Pais, Gambit Weekly
The band are currently preparing for the release of their 10th studio album “The Flying Musical Circus”.
