We are a week away from our inaugural performance in Russia. The Dirty Dozen will be headlining the St. Petersburg Day Festival in front of the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia on Saturday, May 29th. Very few international concerts have been held at this historic site, as we join the likes of Madonna, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones ... not bad company, we'd say.
A bit of history for you, the Palace Square is the central city square of St. Petersburg and the former Russian Empire and was the home of many Russian Czars ... we'll be bringing the sweet sounds of New Orleans into the square for the first time for tens of thousands of Russian citizens.
We are honored, to say the least.
We're heading back to Live Oak to kick things off at the Suwanee Springfest tomorrow night before heading to Georgia for shows in Macon and Athens. The show in Macon is being presented by the folks at 11th Hour at the Cox Capitol Theatre. The band will wrap this weekend up with an evening at the Melting Point. Come on out and join us for some great music ... don't be bashful ... come by and say "hey."
