The Dirty Roots


Lead Guitar, Background Singer.


We are at the core a 4 piece band consisting of drums, bass, keys, guitar/vox doing mostly original material with some choice covers mixed in that round out the originals. Currently working up a 3-4 hour set made up of around 12 originals and 20+ covers to get out and play 3 set nights and make some scratch while pursing the original angle.

We are ISO a drummer that is steeped in blues that can jazz it up at times. Someone that has feel and dynamics and listens to the band while playing and can create a fat pocket for everyone to play in.

Also ISO or background singers that will be able to work out backing harmonies with us as well as improvise at times. Percussion abilities a HUGE plus. Potential to sing lead on some songs is there if it's the right fit!

Music mixes Muscle Shoals/Stax style soul with blues and vintage rock n roll. Think Booker T / Joe Cocker(think mad dogs) / Allman Brothers / Derek & The Dominos / Tedeschi Trucks etc.

Putting together full line up for several shows that will have 3 piece horn section(we have already in place) along with background singers/percussion and a lead guitar player that can do some rhythm playing as well. Backing vox a plus. Link is to live audio and a mashup video of some of our material we shot a couple years ago. Will be updating this with the new shows and booking heavy for the summer. Commitment only needed for upcoming shows but if you'd like to stay on longer and it works out we welcome that! We prefer that as we'd like to have a solid and set full lineup for the band!
