"Jam in the Van"

"Dirty Soap , a contradiction of words you might say. Befitting for a group that is a musical contradiction. Dirty Soap contradicts your standard musical styles and norms. Just see them once and you will never forget them. Uninhibited, Dirty Soap does not hold back. That's what make them stand out like bold black against faded ink. They pack the same energy and shoot it into the crowd every time you see them. Kazoos, guttural screams, bucket banging, comedic banter and a carnival like atmosphere will leave you stomping your feet, spontaneously dancing and wanting to come back for more." - Michael Ramoni

           Dirty Soap is a Rock group from Philadelphia. Founding members, Spoon Ferguson and Thomas Martin, met in high school and quickly formed a musical bond. Blending Spoon’s raw vocals, affinity for traditional Blues, and unique guitar stylings (he plays left handed with inverted strings) with Thomas’ smooth Doo-wop approach and catchy song writing. The name Dirty Soap represents these opposing styles.
            Over the years they crafted their unique sound on Philly street corners and parks - dubbing themselves “Doo-wop Punks.” The band expanded with the addition of a rhythm section while working the open-mic circuit. Shane Leddy providing his booming stand up bass and Walter Foley adding groove and texture with the drums. Years later they acquired Shawn “The Kid” Touhill with his intricate and biting guitar leads. The pieces are now all in place and with hard work, restless dedication, and a youthful excitement and love for their craft, they strive to be amongst the many greats to come out of Philadelphia.
