Dirty Bourbon River Show!
Friday, September 14

10 pm - $5 Cover

How We Became What We Are
In August of 2008 frontman and multi-instrumentalist Noah Adams drifted into New Orleans and quickly found himself enchanted with its wild and authentic, booming musical styles.

After recruiting New Orleans native drummer Dane “Bootsy” Schindler, they formed what would later become the Dirty Bourbon River Show, playing their first show at the end of the year under the moniker “Buck Johnson and the Hootenanny Kid.”

After picking up ringleader/vocalist Charles “Big Charlie” Skinner and multi-instrumentalist Wayne Mitchell, the Dirty Bourbon River Show began to grow into an interactive multi-genre variety hour-style band. Drawing from a rich diversity of musical backgrounds, they began in American roots music and branched out into folk, rock, blues, jazz, latin, gypsy, circus, and traditional New Orleans styles.

The Dirty Bourbon River Show made their debut at the legendary Tipitina’s during homegrown night on March 11th, 2009. After picking up bassman Jimmy Williams that summer, they embarked upon their first regional tour of the south. The contagion of their whiskey-soaked New Orleans eclecticism began to spread fast. That fall they recorded their debut studio album, Volume One.

Less than a year after their homegrown debut, the Dirty Bourbon River Show headlined Tipitina’s on February 5th, 2010, releasing their first full length LP.

Showing no signs of slowing down, for their second summer of touring the Dirty Bourbon River Show cut a second 30 min record called Free Love and caravaned around the south – gypsy style – giving it out for free. The contagion doubled.

That fall they finished up a six month burlesque residency as the house band and ringmasters of the Big Busk! – blending together a unique rock’n’roll comedia erótica variety hour heralded by the press as being a “genetically theatrical love affair.” Additionally, they continued touring the surrounding area – going as far as North Carolina with the Holy Ghost Tent Revival.

The Dirty Bourbon River Show began their third year with the release of a 3rd studio album – Volume II – at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans. It was their most ambitious record yet; the already-lush orchestrations of the band began to see even more multi-instrumentalism, large vocal and horn harmonies, and an elevated level of musical interplay between the members. To support its release touring increased…

As spring turned to summer the Dirty Bourbon River Show saw the departure of Wayne Mitchell, leaving the band to pursue a career in biomathematics. New Orleans native Matt Thomas (Kirk Joseph’s Backyard Groove, Something Delicious) replaced him as resident soloist, bringing to the table both tenor and baritone saxophone, along with clarinet and back-up vocals.

Now permanently aligned as a full-time professional touring act, Dirty Bourbon spent the 2nd half of 2011 extending the reach of their show further up the Eastern Seaboard and out into the Rocky Mountains. On 11/11/11 they released their 4th studio album – The Old-Timey AfroPop Jibberish Junction – attempting to give it away for free again like Free Love. They couldn’t keep enough copies on hand to quell the demands, and it had suddenly become obvious, now more than 200 shows later, that the Dirty Bourbon River Show was becoming something great…

Showing no signs of slowing down, Dirty Bourbon began the year by releasing their 5th studio album, Volume Three. To support it’s release they moved all of their stuff out of the 8th ward and into a storage unit and then took to the road, touring the country for four straight months.

The tour proved extremely successful, solidifying their circuit across the South, Southeast, Midwest, and expanding their reach further into new North Eastern territories. After taking a fortnight of rest with friends and family in New Orleans, the Dirty Bourbon River Show is now back on the road again for another 2 1/2 months, continuing their national expansion, set to return home on Halloween.

Possum Creek Bluegrass Band
Friday, August 31
10pm - $5 Cover

Possum Creek began as a jam among a few bluegrass pickers in the Wilmington, NC area. Soon people wanted the band for parties and weddings. The group eventually distilled down to a bluegrass power trio. Alex Ball On the fiddle and guitar, Jones Smith switching between mandolin, banjo and guitar and Ben Chontos rounding it out on the Upright bass.

The sound is tight with strong bluegrass energy, hot picking and proud singing. Possum Creek like to highlight their originals among the bluegrass favorites with a few outlaw country songs thrown in for flavor. The hard driving, barn burning music draws in music fans young and old alike. So grab your dancing shoes and a partner for a lively time whenever you see the boys from Possum Creek.


They’re back in the Haus Friday, 9/10/12!  Come see em!

From the suburbs of Philadelphia, with sounds infecting the East Coast and beyond, Long Miles brings you melodies from a light heart. The band likes to shine in their own way, bringing good vibes to people wherever they take the stage. With heroes like Phish, Umphrey’s McGee, Steel Pulse, and G. Love & Special Sauce, Long Miles strives to feed the need for the groovy, bouncy, feel-good tunes that make these groups so well known.

Long Miles has come a long way since their self-produced LP, 405 Productions, recorded in their freshman college dorm room in Charleston in 2009. They recorded A Philadelphonic EP with Chris DiBeneditto (G. Love & Special Sauce, Slightly Stoopid, the Movement) at Philadelphonic Studios in Philadelphia, with a November 2010 release. This March they released their latest album, Shades, recorded with Rick Beato (Trey Anastasio, NeedToBreathe, The Movement) at Black Dog Sound Recording Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.

Long Miles takes a major sonic leap forward with Shades. The album showcases their exploration of new reggae-tinged textures and jam band-influenced song arrangements, while continuing to define their signature blend of inventive lyrics and tight, dance-inducing rhythms. With tunes on the radio and consistent crowds at live shows, their potential to be a major influence on the scene can be found at every listen, and Long Miles is ready for the world.
