Meet The Dirty River Boys — The Best Live Band in Texas [AUDIO]


“If I’d asked my customers what they wanted, they’d have said a faster horse.” Henry Ford is credited with saying that in regards to the innovation, and revolution of the automobile. What he was getting at is people obviously can’t understand the necessity of something they’ve yet to use, see or even imagine.

A couple weeks ago, I didn’t understand that I’d been being cheated, at every concert I’d ever been to. But no more.

A Dirty River Boys concert is more than a concert, it’s an event. Before I had seen their live show I had only heard tales of their high energy, Chinese fire-drill (as Rita Ballou says) of a concert. But the tales and rumors in no way prepared me for what I saw. But I think I can descibe it in one word — indescribable.

Live music is now ruined for me.

From here on out, at every concert I go to, I’m going to expect a stand-up bass, more banjo, more harmonica, Chinese fire-drills and everyone tag-teamin’ on lead vocals. And no drum set needed, just a snare.

I don’t even hesitate to say this, The Dirty River Boys are the best live band in Texas.

The guys stopped by Radio Texas, LIVE! for their East Texas radio debut, check out where they came from, and hear the song I’ve had on repeat in my truck the past two weeks “Union Painter.”

Love that song. LIKE the guys on Facebook and check out their website.

Now, if only I had a way of bottling up one of their shows to share with you the spectacle and roller coaster ride that it is — oh wait, I do. It’s called YouTube. Check it out.

And that doesn’t even come close to doing them justice. All I can tell ya is next time they’re in or around your city, be there.
