Dirt River Radio (aka The Dirties) are a 6 piece band from Melbourne known for heartfelt Australian rock ballads cranked with Rock-a-Billy swagger, Gypsy Romps, Celtic sea shanties and smoldering dirty Soul, these guys truly stink of Melbourne.
With a line-up of two guitars, bass, drums and the magnificent `Dirtettes’ on backing vocals, ‘The Dirties’ have evolved from humble St Kilda beginnings into a world class rock n roll outfit (two European tours under their belts). Their classic sound will deliver to you a swag of heartfelt tunes and at times brutal snapshots of reality, they’re also renowned for their wildly volatile, no punches pulled live shows and when you get to know them, true gang mentality.
2017 see’s their best incarnation yet with members from Electric Mary & 28 Days and their third album, ‘Sun City White’ out Apr 29th explores issues spanning from personal demons to the plight of humanity.
Their stand out song “All my Friends” is a regular track on radio playlists around the globe as well as inspiring many a crowd chorus at gigs. A triumphant ode to friendship, this song affects listeners deeply and frequently finds itself appearing at both weddings and funerals.
The Dirt River Radio troubadours have shared the stage w Jim Ward (At The Drive In), Carlos Santana and Chris Isaak among many others that never fail to win over each audience.
