The Dirty Bourbon River Show — and seriously, it's a show — regularly labels its music "New Orleans Gypsy Brass Circus Rock," and it couldn't be more accurate. The five-piece band (all insanely talented multi-instrumentalists) pushes for a sound that wraps the eclectic, iconic, and always strange nature of New Orleans into one alcohol-fueled set. The band formed in 2009 and has already released eight albums — clocking in at two per year since 2010 — and each album is a whirling, brass and accordion-filled trip through dark streets and back-alley bars. DBRS ringleader, and occasional trombone player, Charlie Skinner once told me that his "goal as an entertainer is to take you away to that special place where you kind of feel like you're in New Orleans for a little while. You can let loose, you can party, you don't have to give a flying f*** about what's going one."
