“Bands On Bordeaux Encore” Tonight With Nathan Dean And The Damn Band


      Chadron’s Bands on Bordeaux summer concert series wraps up tonight with its Encore Concert featuring Nathan Dean and The Damn Band playing from 6:00-9:00 in Railroad Park at 1st and Main.

    The Encore Concert is sponsored by Chadron State College as part of its Move-In and Week of Welcome for new students. 

     The school encourages parents in town to help their students get settled in to come to the concert and get to know Chadron and some of its residents in an informal setting.

     This is the third time at Bands on Bordeaux for Nathan Dean and the Damn Band. The first was in 2015 and the second just last year. 

      Dean, the lone remaining original member of the group formed in 2005, says their primary sound remains 90’s country with lots of original music from their 4 albums plus plenty of cover versions of songs by groups from many musical genres. 

      As for the name, the group was originally Nathan Dean and No Quiet Hours, a reference to the “after parties” that often followed the band after the bars closing for the night.

      Dean says that after a few years, he began hearing people say “Oh, no – that damn band is coming back to town. My liver’s going to hurt” – and the name stuck.

     Chamber of Commerce Director Gabby Michna says that as always, there are food vendors, kids activities, and a beer garden covering the entire concert area. 

     Seating is limited, so everyone is encouraged to bring a lawn chair to Bands on Bordeaux for Nathan Dean and The Damn Band.
