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.
Possum Squad is an amalgamation of youthful energy and older wisdom. These Lancastrians play a wide variety of predominately original material made to induce swaying of the hips, waving of the arms, and general dance behavior. They do this with electric guitars, cello, upright bass, and a thick rhythm section. Get excited for powerhouse vocals from Phoebe Radcliffe, unbeatable vibrato and tone from Emma Rast, cool and even bass lines from Luke Harnish, sage-like beats from Tommy Leanza (Wild Hymns and Inca Campers), and some raw, shredding guitar work from Jordan Rast (Second Hand Suits). They come together under the veil of the possum, the elusive source of inspiration to us all.
