Dirty Honey played their first headline concert at the world famous Troubadour in front of a sold out home crowd.. There were fans that drove from afar as Las Vegas and Phoenix to see “their favorite band”. It twas’ a mix of lean groovy riffs, heavy bass rhythm’s and awesome vocals that amalgamates Aerosmith’s “Raunch” and “Zeppelin-esque’s” compelling hooks. It was swingin’ from beginning to end! Sure to satisfy any connoisseur of rock and roll. Dirty Honey borrows from the hybridization of Chess and Sun “era” samples, without ever sounding pretentious. For the record they don’t sound British… They lack the delicate folky preciousness… They lack the obsession for blues master’s authenticity. They lack that larger than life ego- driven persona of Brit rock bands. They are truly an authentic American band.. sounding as though they are the best fuckin’ bar band in your town.. cranking out nasty hard-edged rock and roll.

It’s their live performances where they shed much of their influences and have developed their own trademark sound that’s bathed in grease and layered in grit. There “ain’t” no stage too big for Dirty Honey!  They went through their entire catalog, which I can say is more like a “greatest hits” than a freshman effort.  Opening with “Scars” and slidin’ into “Break You” which got the crowd “ hot & sticky”… They even covered Aerosmith’s “shake your ass” classic, “Last Child”…Their encore started with their #1 rock airplay track, “When I’m Gone”.. (which is the very first #1 song from a band not signed to a label )…  But it was..“Rolling 7’s”, their  current radio smash, that sent the audience home.. There’s nothing quite like this song when performed live..It could very well serve as the blueprint for Dirty Honey’s legacy…

Unlike rap and hip-hop, EDM and pop….Rock and roll has redemption… If you missed The Troubadour gig then you have the chance to see them at The El Rey Theater at the end of February. It’s all about absolution in rock and roll and Dirty Honey will take you there..
