Dirty Bourbon River Show
Southenglow

Add to your calendar
Date: June 20, 5:30 pm
Location: Red Mountain Park, CB South
Details: 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 bygone eras in music. Since forming in early 2009, the Dirty Bourbon River Show has released nine studio albums and played over 750 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.

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).

The Dirty Bourbon River Show is comprised of Noah Adams (vocals, piano, guitar, accordion, trumpet, trombone), Matt Thomas (vocals, tenor and baritone saxophone, clarinet), Jimmy Williams (bass, sousaphone), Dane “Bootsy” Schindler (drums), and Nick Garrison (trombone).

The Dirty Bourbon River Show is currently touring in support of their latest album “Important Things Humans Should Know” and kicks off our summer concert series with a Southenglow show in CB South.

Alpenglow concerts are held rain or shine. They are free and open to the public.
