A Nightburner Christmas

Beyond the Storm

Fresh off the press...featuring songs played in, and inspired by, the bands experiences in Memphis. In January of 2013 Kevin Purcell and the Nightburners loaded up the "tin can truck" and headed south to take "Memphis by Storm." Purcell and his band of misfits did just that! Being one of just a few bands to make it all the way to the finals on there first trip down. The band made it to the final  9 in a battle of the blues bands that started with close to 150 acts!!! Well now going into 2014 They are once again heading to Memphis for round two, there is some unfinished business....they have yet to WIN
