After being canceled twice by Covid, our first West Coast tour was a complete blast! The 5-week trek had us playing around 20 shows in 9 states, and it was all fantastic. Demand was so high, and then reception so good, that we're now exploring a 2nd west coast tour later this year... possibly in September! In the last 3 months Django has swam in the Gulf, Atlantic, and Pacific for the first time; we played mountain tops, wine country, pot country, a rooftop in Reno, a flatbed in Utah, big stages and cozy corners.
We met thousands of great people, reconnected with old friends, and enjoyed hundreds of tasty beers of all styles. We cruised in the RV through the Donner Pass and white-knuckled a few other narrow mountain passes, and battled gale-force winds in the high desert, and had a near-miss tornado in the plains.

UPDATES FROM DENNIS & BRAD
January 24, 2024
Well, we've rested up, worked up some new music, and have most of 2024 booked... and just in time, because we've already had enough of this midwest winter stuff! Luckily we kick off the Winter Tour Feb 2 in Jacksonville, will spend all of February playing all over Florida, and then we'll wrap up the winter back in Ohio for a few gigs and a run of special shows St. Paddy's Day weekend.
The new Winter Tour shirts are now in stock. They feature a brand new design for those of us who love beer at the molecular level, and you can grab them online now, or of course grab 'em at the shows! If you do buy online, we still haven't picked our new payment vendor (forgot all about it, honestly), so in the mean time you can pay either via PayPal (which also takes credit cards), or pay via Venmo @dennisohagan and put your order info and mailing address in the notes section.
Then it's on to Spring Tour, which will be fantastic... starting off in Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Delaware, then all over Virginia and North Carolina, including a run of beach shows, including another visit to the fantastic Ocracoke Island! The official Spring Tour itinerary will be announced in early March, so STAY TUNED!

We wish all our friends, fans, and followers a wonderful holiday season, and best wishes for 2024!
As you know, we take some time off from the road this time of year to get a little rest, work up a bunch of new music, and work hard at scheduling another fantastic tour for 2024! If you have any breweries you'd like us to play, please drop us a line ASAP, and we'll try our best to get them on the schedule (also doesn't hurt if you tell them about us).
In January we'll be playing a handful of shows around Ohio.... beyond that we'll be kicking off the 2024 tour with our annual month-long Florida in February run, and we'll hope to see ya out there!
November 18, 2023
We'll be rolling into Memphis shortly, kicking off our last major roadtrip of the year. We play Memphis tonight, then head down to Louisiana for a run of shows over the next week in Baton Rouge, Hammond, and New Orleans (and we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving in New Orleans again, which is always incredible!).
After that, as has become our tradition, we'll spend December and January sticking close to home, healing after a crazy year of heavy touring and playing a few select shows in the OH/IN/KY region. Then we kick off the 2024 tour with our annual Florida in February month-long run of beach brewery shows.
BREWERS: we are currently booking all of 2024, so if you're interested in booking a date on our schedule contact us ASAP. The earlier you book, the more flexible we can be in getting you an ideal date. In addition to our usual stops all over the U.S., in 2024 we also plan to extend the tour into Canada (Montreal, Toronto, Nova Scotia) and possibly Central America (Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica)... or if anyone has suggestions on breweries you think we should play, feel free to drop us a line on the form at the bottom of the website!

Wow, the New York/New England tour was spectacular this year! We kicked things off in Buffalo and played several fantastic breweries across upstate and the Finger Lakes (Liquid State Brewing in Romulus was a lot of fun... we were joined onstage by Elvis...), just as the leaves were really starting to pop. We returned to play another fun night at Hero's Brewing in Rochester, and while there were blown away by House of Guitars, the world's largest music store. Of course we also dug into New Yawka food, most notably some fantastic meatball heroes. Our return to the cozy Foothills Hops Farm Brewery had us playing to big family party, as well as a whole crew who returned wearing the shirts from our last visit ;-)
New England was amazing, and spectacular. We couldn't have timed the trip any better... the fall foliage was psychedelic in colors, yet the weather mild and wonderful. We visited some old friends by returning to Mill River Brewing in St. Albans and Kingdom Brewery way up in Newport, and made new friends at the wonderful GoodWater Brewery in Burlington, and Stowe Cider in (wait for it...) Stowe. The final weekend of the tour was like a dream, playing Stowe on Friday, the magical Boothbay Craft Brewery, Taphouse, and RV in Boothbay, Maine (way up on the coast) on Saturday, and then what seemed like a fall festival at the Brew Barn on the gorgeous Red Apple Farm in Phillipston, Massachusetts on Sunday. Of course, along the way we also got our fill of fresh lobster in Maine, amazing chowders, and fantastic steaks and smoked turkey, brisket, and ribs. All this crammed into just 3 weeks.... is there any mystery why we'd need a little break once we got home? We can't wait to get back to New England... in 2024 we'll be doing it in August, so we can take more advantage of the beaches.
This winter, as has become our tradition, we will be relaxing our schedule. We will be playing Memphis, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans the week of Thanksgiving, but other than that we're playing a few shows closer to home and taking some time to relax, and work on a few other projects (Brad's band, Freak Mythology, will be releasing their 2nd album and launching it at an album-release party at Madison Theater in Cincinnati on Nov 10. Tickets are available now thru Ticketmaster!).
We'll be kicking off 2024 with out annual Florida in February tour, spending the whole month down there, and then we'll be spending the year playing some familiar routes, and switching some things up and and playing some parts of the country we haven't been to in a while... and you may want to make sure your passports are in order, there may be some international shows happening later in the year.... just sayin'.... Montreal... Nova Scotia....
