Prepare for a taste of New Orleans, when the Dirty Bourbon River Show comes to Boone Sept. 19.

“You can expect a lot of good old-fashioned rock, bluegrass and folk,” said front man Charlie Skinner. “We play everything and more. We will give people enough to get them out of their seats and up dancing. Once people see how much fun we are having, they will get up.”

The band’s current lineup met through Loyola University New Orleans’ music network.

“Basically, we were all musicians at the time, and we all wanted to be in a band and be on the road,” Skinner said. “We all went to Loyola at the time, but a lot of us didn’t know the other ones while in school.”

Skinner said the band draws its influences from a wide range of genres.

“We listen to a lot of different music,” he said. “We have jazz, classical, punk, ska and metal backgrounds. We’ve studied different kinds of music, and that really shows.”

What Skinner enjoys most about being in a band is simple: the love of performing and travelling.

“We are an American band,” he said. “You can’t choose which country you were born in, but I’m really glad I was born in America. One day, when we have the money and the following, which I believe we will, we would love to travel around the world. We’ve played in 35 states so far. We love to travel across the country.”

Out of all the places he’s toured at while in the Carolinas, Skinner said Boone is one of the band’s favorite stops.

“Boone is a wonderful part of our North Carolina circuit,” Skinner said. “Anytime that we are in North Carolina, we feel as home as we can be. Boone has always been really good to us. We’ve made a lot of friends in the area, and it is a city that never fails to impress us.”

The Dirty Bourbon River Show performs at Boone Saloon Thursday, Sept. 19, at 10 p.m. Cover costs $5, and only those 21 and older will be admitted.

Boone Saloon is located at 489 W. King St. For more information, visit http://www.dirtybourbonrivershow.com.
