Dirty Bombshell


Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums.


Dirty Bombshell is an all-originals collaboration between J.D. and Bradley Neil, two lifelong friends with years of musical work together. A modern take on cock-rock bands like AC/DC, Poison and Roth-era Van Halen, Dirty Bombshell is currently supporting their debut album and songwriting for a second album.

The band's primary goal is to consistently deliver goosebump-inducing, transcendent live concert experiences for our audiences and ourselves. A subsidiary goal is to write top-flight hook-pop hard rock songs that provide the foundation for achieving the primary goal.

The path forward is to take the band concept and first-album songs as a foundation, and experiment with the universe of live show behaviors that are consistent with the band's artistic vision, and find out which of those behaviors leads to goal achievement.

As part of that journey, in the longer term Dirty Bombshell expects to add a dedicated cock-rock arena-party frontman (ala David Lee Roth, Steven Tyler, Bret Michaels or Freddie Mercury). In the meantime, the band is fully functional with J.D. singing and playing bass.

In the shorter term, we would like to add at least one guitarist.

An alternate live configuration we're exploring puts Bradley on guitar, so if you're a drummer who might be a good fit, get in touch.

As you can see there are several opportunities for you to be a part of this journey. If you meet the basic requirement of being a talented, compelling live performer, we'd like to talk to you. If you see a way of fitting yourself into this mix, you should love this kind of music and want to be part of a group that seriously Brings It live. We currently gigging as a duo for smaller gigs and as a power trio with a guest guitarist for larger gigs.

We're easy to find on the web if you search for the band Dirty Bombshell and ignore the book with the same title. We don't have a Band Mix pro account. Find us and get in touch!
