Crowfield and Dirty Bourbon River Show coming to New Bern!

Friday, September 7th at 9pm. $10 – tickets on sale now!

Crowfield (Charleston, SC) roots rock! The Sweet Sounds Of Crowfield – Band Brings Album Release Party and High Energy Show To New Bern, NC.

Crowfield is set to play New Bern, NC, for the first time in several years on Thursday September 7th, 2012 with an album release party at Broad Street Social Club.

Crowfield blends Infectious, charismatic rock with elements of Americana, alt-country, and pop and has been captivating audiences across the U.S. with an engaging stage presence and insightful and poignant lyrics. Frontman Tyler Mechem formed the band that would come to be known as Crowfield when he relocated to Charleston, SC in 2005 from Indiana. In 2008, they caught the ear of acclaimed producer Rick Beato (Shinedown, Needtobreathe, Crossfade, Trey Anastasio, Stuck Mojo, Charlie Mars). Crowfield’s debut album “Goodbye, Goodnight, So Long Midwestern” (Ten Star Records) soon followed and won the band a legion of fans with it’s stripped down focus on rock and alt-country.

Crowfield’s third album features a return closer to the band’s original sound. The album, also produced by Beato, features everything from ethereal acoustic solo numbers like “Measure of a Life” to soaring radio ready tracks full of horns and strings like “Catching Up” to the rock of “Mistake” and “Black Hills.” Formerly signed to Universal Records, Crowfield is full of broad commercial appeal and is currently on tour across the United States.

Dirty Bourbon River Show (New Orleans, LA) a damn good time…

Wednesday, September 12th at 8pm. $6

New Orleans combo Dirty Bourbon River Show calls themselves a “gypsy-folk-circus-rock band. Their exotic, carnivalesque stage show backs up the claim. The lineup features five skillful musicians who don’t mind swapping instruments from time to time: Noah Adams (vocals, chordophones), Dane “Bootsy” Schindler (percussion), Big Charlie Skinner (vocals), Jimmy Williams (bass and tuba), and Matt Thomas (woodwinds). They first congregated in 2008, initially playing under the moniker Buck Johnson and the Hootenanny Kid. They eventually evolved into an audience-interactive revue, playing a mix of musical styles — from folk, blues, and jazz to Latin, gypsy, and the most eclectic elements of the New Orleans underground.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
