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

Durty Nellies, 180 N Smith St, Palatine, IL

WE'RE BACK ON STAGE FRIDAY NIGHT NOV 12TH to reignite the stage at Durty Nellie's after 2 decades, returning to our old stomping grounds where we played to sold-out crowds all through the 1990s. The Nightburns shows were so popular back then, that more than a few times, the Palatine Fire Department showed up to clear out the overcrowded concert hall!

We'll be playing some of our original tunes, as well as all the classics you know and love, Plus A Slew of New Songs You're Sure To Dig.

And if that wasn't enough...

OUR BACKBURNER HORN SECTION WILL BE JOINING US ON STAGE... Mitch the Lip on Trumpet and Rob Calabro on sax for a night of smoldering blues with a Rockin' Horn Section!!!'

So Make Your Plans to Be at DURTY NELLIE'S Friday Night November 12th! See You There!

Nellie's Gastropub & ConcertHub Stage. Nellie's has been a friendly, neighborhood tavern since 1972. Serving the Palatine community for over 45 years, this new location opened its doors in 2003! Nellie's is also known for the most extensive beer selection in the area.
