Austin's own Reckless Kelly return with their 8th studio album, "Long Night Moon" on September 3, 2013. The album is the follow-up to 2011's Grammy Nominated "Good Luck & True Love," which took home four Lone Star Music Awards, and sent three singles to #1 on Texas Radio. Produced by band members Willy & Cody Braun, along with Lead Guitarist David Abeyta, Long Night Moon was mixed by Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris), and features additional instrumentation from legendary steel guitar player Lloyd Maines, as well as Bukka Allen (piano, organ) and Jeff Plankenhorn (dobro).

When Willy Braun, frontman and principal songwriter for the band began writing songs for Long Night Moon, he quickly found a theme emerging. “About halfway through writing this record, I noticed that almost all of the songs I was writing, whether they were songs about the road, life, or love, had something to do with traveling. It started as an accident and I decided to just go with it. Before we knew it, there was a definite theme.” It’s honest, original and constantly evolving. The group is known for their explosive live shows and a passion for making albums of substance. Long Night Moon is no exception to this rule.

The Dirty River Boys
You can tell a lot about a group of musicians by the name they give themselves.The Dirty River Boys make music with the type of sound and texture that is soaked in the realities of the hard-scrabble city they call home in the far west Texas desert. Members Nino Cooper, Travis Stearns, Marco Gutierrez and newest member Colton James on standup bass/banjo have become quickly renowned for their rousing live shows which feature the boys winning four-part harmonies and stout acoustic instrumentation.
Fans clamored for the release of the band's first two EPs, Long Cold Fall and Train Station, and buzz for their first full-length LP which is deafening. The live intensity of the Dirty River Boys is difficult to duplicate in a studio environment, but these Boys make that transition seamless. It take determination and talent to make waves when you come from the dust and dirt of El Paso, but the Dirty River Boys are continually proving they are up to the challenge. By utilizing traditional folk instruments with rock and bluegrass arrangements, they are blazing a trail paved by their own, unique style of music.
The Dirty River Boys style blows away any preconceived notions of what acoustic music can be. Harmonicas and fiddles cut melodies that blend with furious licks spilling from guitars and mandolins alongside explosive percussive rhythms all combined to create a whirling dervish of musicality.


"From the moment they took the stage, no one was able to take their eyes off the Dirty River Boys. Their unique blend of musical
styles and energy is almost overwhelming. A combination of being able to play any number of instruments very well, music you can relate to, original lyrics, along with a stage show that is high energy, makes for an evening you will not forget." -John Dickinson, The Iron Horse Pub

"The Dirty River Boys have done what seems impossible: they have combined timeless roots-music and country sensibilities into a mesh of haunting melody, searing performance energy and DIY attitude. For those who enjoy a little danger in their entertainment choices, the Dirty River Boys fit the ticket nicely." -Chris Mosser, 98.1 KVET Austin

"[I]f need be I will testify in court that the future of recklessabandonwildassnomercyrock&roll is in good hands with the Dirty River Boys"
-Ray Wylie Hubbard
