DSO Winter Tour & New East Coast Dates

Kicking off last week, the First tour of the year is underway and headed through the midwest, down south and west Texas bound. Tonight the band is in Madison, WI at The Barrymore Theatre. Then it's on down the ol' Mississip to St Louis before heading to Indianapolis on Friday and Columbus and Cleveland for the holiday weekend. After a tour of the 'Buckeye State' it's on to the 'Bluegrass State' with a stop in Covington before a weekend run through North Carolina with 2 nights at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte. Rolling deeper into the south the band makes stops in Birmingham, AL and Oxford, MS before another 2 night run at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta. The onset of March signals the final stretch of the tour with a westward run stopping over in Mobile, AL, New Orleans, Houston, Dallas and Austin.

For the duration of this tour our friend Jeff Mattson will join DSO on lead guitar and vocals. Having honed his chops with years on the road with The Zen Tricksters, Phil Lesh & Friends, and the Donna Jean Godchaux Band, we are thrilled with the talent and spirit that Jeff brings to the table, and to the band. We are having a blast...Saddle Up and catch a ride on our Southbound Winter Tour!

Tickets and more info available on our Tour Dates Page.

Upcoming Ridgefield Playhouse Shows

Tonight at The Ridgefield Playhouse...Madeleine Peyroux -- Tonight, Tuesday, June 23rd at 8:00 p.m.

Madeleine-PeyrouxThe smokey vocals of Madeleine Peyroux are coming to The Ridgefield Playhouse with her earthy new album called Bare Bones.  Peyroux has achieved critical success with her signature "postmodernist coolness" (LA Times).  The New York Times has praised Peyroux as having "a Mona Lisa voice and a personality to match....you can read whatever emotions you want in her sly, enigmatic interpretations."

Working with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Peyroux will donate $1 from each ticket sold to a local charity through the NCADV.  This is not the first time Peyroux has raised money while out on tour, having done similar fundraisers on her past 5 North American tours.
