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 (?reballs, 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”. more >>>
Ellis Dyson & the Shambles expertly blends old-time influences ranging from Piedmont murder ballads, to Dixieland, to big band swing. The result: whiskey-soaked, foot-stompin’ songs that bring party music of departed eras to crowds both young and old. The Shambles have made waves with their theatrical and explosive live shows and masterful musicianship that electrifies every audience. Bursting with exuberance and effortless expertise, this playfully hootin’ and hollerin’ act is guaranteed to bring the ruckus.

Ellis Dyson & the Shambles consists of Ellis Dyson (banjo, vocals), Nathan Huvard (acoustic guitar), Jonathan Ng (fiddle), Adam Maloney (upright bass) Danny Abrams (soprano/alto/baritone saxophones, vocals), and Matt Hall (trumpet, vocals). The band has come together through a series of fortuitous meetings in Chapel Hill, N.C. Beginning as a saxophone and banjo duo, the band has grown into a freight train string band with a flashy horn section more >>>
