The Dirty Dozen Brass Band & the Last Waltz Ensemble Return to the Pour House

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , on April 15, 2014 by Lowcountry Boil

1920266_10152050975589565_1081741604_nThe Dirty Dozen & the Last Waltz Ensemble team up for a special night at the Charleston Pourhouse on Friday, April 18th. Doors open at 8pm with LAST WALTZ kicking it off at 8:45pm, DDBB horns will join the Last Waltz Ensemble followed by a full DDBB show. 

To describe how the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has arrived at its 35th Anniversary, trumpet player Gregory Davis employs a tried-and true New Orleans-centric analogy: “It ends up being like a pot of gumbo – you drop in a little okra, drop in a little shrimp, you drop in some crabs. Before you know it, you’ve mixed in all these different ingredients and you’ve got a beautiful soup. That was our approach to music early on and it still is today.”

Started in Atlanta, The Last Waltz Ensemble is a musical group that progressively plays the music of Bob Dylan and The Band.  The group is an amalgam of the best players in the nation presenting the legendary and timeless music of the super-group, THE BAND, whose influence is still felt in music nearly 30 years after its last performance.

Tickets: $17 advance ticket, $20 day of show

The Last Waltz Ensemble Returns with the Music of Bob Dylan and The Band

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2011 by Lowcountry Boil

If you are a fan of live rock music, then there is a good chance you have seen Martin’s Scorsese’s classic documentary, The Last Waltz, which was billed as the last performance from notorious rock group The Band among many other special guests including Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Muddy Waters and Neil Young. While that show was legendary and lives on in many DVD collections, you have a chance to enjoy the music as The Last Waltz Ensemble recreates that night by bringing the music of Bob Dylan and The Band to the lowcountry again on Friday, July 1st at the Charleston Pour House.

When asked why the magic, mystery and music of The Band continues to resonate thirty-four years after the demise of the group, The Last Waltz Ensemble’s instigator and front man Kris Gloer responded, “That’s like asking why Shakespeare has lasted so long. It’s a timeless example of old world elegance and modern day hooliganism jelly rolled into a wafer thin mint and topped with Richard Manuel’s high harmony.”

It’s simple to see why singer/guitarist Gloer and his band mates, Jessica Sheridan (vocals), Benji Shanks (slide guitar), Mark Kramer (acoustic guitar/vocals), Eric Reed (bass/vocals), Jason Fuller (keyboards/vocals) and Will Groth (drums/percussion), continue to pay homage to The Band. The revolutionary energy of the group’s final breath at The Winterland Ballroom in November of 1976 has perpetually propelled The Band’s music in front of new audiences. Gloer and company, as The Last Waltz Ensemble, are happy to spread the music to established fans and young converts.

The Last Waltz Ensemble recently completed another tribute to Bob Dylan and The Band’s tunes with New Orleans Jokerman, an effort recorded in New Orleans and Atlanta with many of the finest musicians in each city. The LWE took a pull of Dylan and Band tunes and seasoned a fine gumbo with the zest of The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, George Porter Jr, members of The Neville Brothers, The Radiators, Blackberry Smoke and even the great Francine Reed from Lyle Lovett’s Large Band fame.


“It was a dream come true. Working with the Dirty Dozen, George Porter Jr and the rest of the NoLa crew was refreshing and inspiring,” remarks Gloer. “Those guys know who they are, so when you bring an idea to the table you’re going to get an authentic response. The collaboration was a moment of surreal testimony and was everything we hoped for and more.”

The Last Waltz Ensemble is a musical group that progressively plays the music of Bob Dylan and The Band bolstering a play st of over one hundred Bob Dylan, The Band, and related songs, covering music from all eras of the artists’ careers. From The Hawks to the Basement Tapes to The Last Waltz to later recordings, the group uses vintage equipment and borrowed arrangements, and incorporates guest performances by friends from regional and national acts.

Give them a listen here.

James Justin & Co. Release Dark Country

Saturday, May 21th at the Pour House was the official release party for the latest James Justin & Co. CD, Dark Country. The band hit the ground running and the stage did not seem large enough to contain the energy, talent and enthusiasm of the band as a whole and specifically, lead vocalist and guitar player, James Justin Burke. Burke’s music is fun to get down to, but there is also rich storytelling and emotions in every tune.

Duffy Lewis of had this to say about Burke and his band: With their eclectic mix of musical styles, James Justin & Co. represents the best of the burgeoning genre of Americana. “Americana is here to stay. I hope it becomes bigger than rock ‘n’ roll,” says band leader Justin Burke. Rooted in various forms of American music, “Dark Country” is reminiscent of legendary musicians John Prine and Neil Young, with a smattering of Jim Morrison, and resembles contemporary artists, The Avett Brothers—but Burke is creating his own unique style of Americana music, where rock ‘n’ roll meets folk music.

James Justin & Co. follows their 2009 debut album, “Southern Son, So Far,” with “Dark Country,” due to be released nationally in July. “Dark Country” delivers a driving Southern rock beat, mixed with the haunting, sometimes sentimental strings of bluegrass, country, and folk. Add the power of brass horns and throw in an organ and piano, and J. J. & Co. cannot be pigeon-holed.”

The band will be touring for the next several months to promote Dark Country. If these guys are in your area, go to them! You will not be disappointed.
