Live @ Paradiso, Amsterdam

Thanx to the following folks for a great “Let It Snow Tour” this December: our buddies in De Staat & their great roadcrew, the nice bunch of people that work at W2, MC Schaaf, Metropool & Paradiso, the party-cyco audience that came out to the shows, the maniacs who filmed the shows and put ‘em on YouTube, and – certainly not least – the BBR (for this tour) down-sized, wonderful roadcrew of Rob Roadie & Vicious Veltman.


New video comin’ up!

Friends! Last weekend we shot a video clip for the stone cold rocker ‘Turning The Tide’. Our friends of Odd Field Film did an excellent job, according to us. They are maniacs… Cracks in the ceiling! A Boozer’s Shoot-Out! You can see for yourself within time what we like about this new video, as it’ll be on YouTube as soon as December 8th.

Thanx for an awesome night at Doornroosje, friends. It was a SOLD OUT night!  YES. Sorry to the many folks who had come to nothing but a closed door. What a way to start our journey together.


We started 11-11-11 with a spray can or two, as you can see in this video:

Fresh from The Press


The first reviews on our debut album are being published as we speak. And it seems like the press digs it!


- Dutch rockzine Lust For Life honors the album with four out of five stars and says ‘this album is so tough, I just might get me a tattoo’. Sure thing! Zine will be instore tomorrow.


- Lords Of Metal (81/100) states that BBR ‘grasps the sound and feel of the Southern States, while making it sound fresher ánd heavier’. Must be the smell of Texas Pete’s BBQ sauce.


- According to White Room, BBR ‘will blow its’ own Texan whirlwind’. Now that’s a nice one! How do they come up with that…?



If you want to read some more about BBR, here are two (Dutch) interviews for y’all: 3voor12 & Ugenda.


Thanx, press folks! More comin’ up. Take care, BBR

Pre-album Gigs | 2008-2011

Sneak peak

We’re getting closer to the 11-11-11 releaseparty and that means you can almost get your hands on this little piece of R’N'R!

Almost fifty minutes of Southern R’N'R, eleven BBR originals. What about the out-of-limits speedster Doin’ Fine, the mastodontic boogie Exit Spoiler, the slide-grindin’ In The Balance and of course BBR’s anthem to keep y’all psyched: Stay Hungry. Psychedelics, ballads and acoustics are also featured allover the record.

Just one thing: PLAY IT LOUD!!

For those who can’t make it to our releaseparty: pre-order it thru Although we prefer you go to your local albumstore and pay less for your pre-order. Saves you a penny for a cold beer.

Video-launch-BBQ-matinee for invited

BBR organised a BBQ for some friends last Sunday. It was our way of thanking the folks that helped us over the years. Plus it was a nice way to present our video of ‘Bright Light City’ to some people we wanted to welcome in our team. Of course this matinee was drenched with gallons of Texas Pete BBQ Sauce, beer and whiskey. The headaches are silent witnesses.
