Dirty Bourbon River Show & Holy Ghost Tent Revival

About 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 8 studio albums and played almost 800 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), Matt Thomas (vocals, tenor and baritone saxophone, clarinet), Jimmy Williams (bass, sousaphone), Dane “Bootsy” Schindler (drums), and Sandra Love (back-up vocals)

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)

About Holy Ghost Tent Revival:
Nine years, three genres, and four records into it, Holy Ghost Tent Revival's sound has emerged as something different than anyone might have expected. The music is now filled with three and four-part harmonies reminiscent of the Beatles in one section and Motown in the next. The drums, bass, and keys, are centered on a Stax-like groove, and the three electric guitars breathe dynamic into each song. All-the-while with organic horns that dominate but compliment, like the old Memphis soul horns or The Band in The Last Waltz. Forming in a dorm room in 2007, the band chose its name after a picture scrolled across a computer screen just a simple sign with the words Holy Ghost Tent Revival written on it. Someone saw the picture, shouted out those words and there was no going back. Birthed of a banjo-driven fireball of ragtime/swing energy, Holy Ghost Tent Revival's roots were formed by getting people moving on a dance floor. With their latest EP release, Summer Jelly, HGTR proved to be advancing and adding a new depth to their sound, and the fans were digging it. Now with female vocals, four part harmonies, synths, and a second trumpet, HGTR is marrying genres in a way that NPR describes as that of a soul-rock horn band that recalls 60s and 70s classic-rock influences such as The Band and The Flying Burrito Brothers. This new sound has inspired amazing acts like Lake Street Dive, Dr. Dog, Shovels and Rope, and Robert Randolph & the Family Band to share their stage with them and in turn has elevated Holy Ghost Tent Revival to a nationally touring, mainstage-ready band.
