Dirty Bourbon River Show
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 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 (fireballs, 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”
Sparkle Pony
Sparkle Pony
Sparkle Pony is fun, refreshing, creative and difficult not to love. This little Bluegrass, Newgrass and Folk quartet has quickly earned the reputation for being one of the most well-polished, high quality bands on the Philly Folk scene right now. Super tight harmonies, ripping solos, great arrangements over well-crafted original songs is what to expect when you hear Sparkle Pony play live. A guaranteed crowd pleaser!

Lead singer Valentina Raffaelli, from Tuscany, Italy is a true vocal powerhouse and brings a unique take on an old familiar style.

Lewin Barringer on guitar, the "well-seasoned" pro has played with everyone from Randy Travis, to Peter Rowan, Blues Traveler and G. Love & Special Sauce and is one of the best rhythm guitar players in the area.

Nick Salcido on bass, is one of the finest and hardest working upright players on the Philadelphia music scene today.

There's a rotating cast of players like Sarah Larsen (Hurricane Hoss) and Rob Dwyer (Kalob Griffin Band)… you never know when they'll show up, so you better come to ALL the shows to find out!
