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 750 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), Jimmy Williams(bass, sousaphone), Dane “Bootsy” Schindler (drums), and Nick Garrison (trombone).

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 touring in support of their latest album “Important Things Humans Should Know”.

The Olate Dogs were the winning participants from Season 7 of America’s Got Talent, scooping up the $1,000,000 and headlining The Palazzo.

Led by Richard Olate and his son Nicholas Olate, the Olate Dogs are a high-energy, fast-paced theatrical act filled with doggie friendly and amazing pet tricks.

Richard grew up in South America in a poor family. A third generation circus performer, Richard has been in the spotlight since he was 12, and through hard work and constant struggle, he made it to the United States at the age of 33.

His dream to have his own dog variety show has come true as he currently has four completely different dog acts. Most of Richard’s dogs are rescues from shelters.

The Olate Dogs can be seen at NBA halftimes and touring the country making kids of all ages laugh and smile.

Over the past fifteen years, Michigan-based Davis has honed an impressive range of skills – songwriter, bandleader, guitarist, and vocalist among them – in the most honest possible fashion: night after night, song after song, show after show Davis simply delivered every performance as though his life depended on it. Investing himself in the American musical diaspora, he has explored the common thread connecting folk, blues, jazz, ragtime, and country forms – discovering his personal perspective as a composer in the process.

“My sound is rooted in the folk tradition,” Davis explains, “but it’s not folk music. Terms like Americana, roots rock, and heartland rock come up, but there’s so much more to it than that. I’m not a purist: I play with that American folk lineage, I play with those metaphors.” His versatility and ravenous musical curiosity has resulted in a divergent output, from his five albums with roots rock outfit Steppin’ In It to the vintage swing styles documented on the album he recorded with Shout Sister Shout.

Davis almost didn’t audition when the popular NBC musical showcase The Voice called. “I’d never even seen the show. Looking at music in a competitive way is totally against the way I was raised,” he says. “Collaboration is what it’s about. Music brings people together. So the competitive aspect of it was really foreign – to be judged like that.” From his first performance, Davis triumphed, and over the course of the season, his rootsy, sincere approach emerged as a refreshing alternative and propelled him all the way to finals.

“Looking back, it was good to be under the gun for a little bit, to look closely at the way I perform,” he recalls. “I didn’t think of myself as a singer before this happened – I thought of myself as a songwriter first. My goal throughout the whole surreal experience was to just maintain the respect and integrity that I’ve staked my career on so far. The amount of support I received from new and old fans has been mind-blowing. A lot of people were just happy that the kind of stuff I do reached the mainstream, and that I actually got an original piece of music [his stirring ‘The Workingman’s Hymn’] on the show.”

The unexpected gift of an instant national audience has given Davis a rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and he is careful when considering its implications and possibilities. “The people who have been with me for the past fifteen years understand this wide scope of American music that influences everything I do,” he says. “I want to show my new listeners this range – which wasn’t always on display on the show.”

The combination of his recent success and his long journey to get there is inspiring a new batch of songs, still in their “larval form,” as Davis puts it. But he’s still doing things as he always have: Walking into the studio with his guitar, his songs, and his band, counting off, and rolling tape – taking the performance live off the floor, with little post-production sweetening.

“More than anything else, it’s really important to me to show people that you don’t need to rely on studio tricks and cheats to make a great album,” he says. “The music I love is raw and organic and it’s perfectly flawed. If more people are listening, I’d like that to be highlighted a little bit more. That’s where I see my place: Playing music that’s a little more raw, that’s a little more organic, that lives and breaths. And also that’s timeless in some way.”

“More than ever,” Davis concludes, “I want to put everything I can into the music I write and the music I make. I’m proud of what I’ve done in the past, but this has made me look at my life and my work differently. And what it comes down to is the people around me: The people I’ve met, the people who supported me from the beginning and during The Voice – the people I’ve been around, the people I’ve been exposed to, the support, the community that surrounded me, my family – the way they sacrificed and helped set me up. I want to make the most of this.”
