The best kept secret in music


"New Orleans Rock is Back"

“In a country where big-money music labels push only
the most-vapid Jessica-Simpson types to the top of the music charts
it's not surprising that innovative original rock is forced
to spring from an American city like no other: New Orleans.

Original rock band Dirty Rotten Shame -- founded by
leggy MCA publishing artist & roller-derby diva Lisa Rahon (tool/vocalist)and sassy rockster, virtuoso Lauren Hamlin (guitarist/vocalist)-- offer more than the cookie cutter canon fodder from today's MTV.

Sure the girls of Dirty Rotten Shame are hot, but damn, they can also write, arrange and play with the best of them! When guitarist William Young and drummer David "Bunny" Jennings teamed up with the girls they were shocked by the complexity of the songs.

Audiences are held at attention by a variety of musical styles, and dynamics throughout their set. Never a dull moment with this band.
A must see if you are in the Big Easy.”

Feeling a bit camera shy


Dirty Rotten Shame was formed in 2004 by Lisa Rahon and Lauren Hamlin. Lisa, a veteran of the Boston music scene, and Lauren, a veteran of the New Orleans music scene, hit it off immediately. Before long, the collaboration paid off, and the writing began. After some personnel changes, and Hurricane Katrina, the current lineup came together, and is a perfect balance. David Jennings and Will Young are both New Orleans natives and round out this band's musical persona. The band recently contributed 2 songs to the soundtrack of Maverick's recent independent film, "Love and Suicide". The 2 songs (Tell Me and Drown), are perhaps the 2 most haunting on the soundtrack. DRS will also be featured as a showcase band at this year's Cutting Edge Music Business Conference on August 26th at Tucker's in their hometown of New Orleans. Dirty Rotten Shame is starting to create quite a stir on New Orleans' rock scene and with good reason. Their arrangements are complex and their melodies are infectious. DRS has a way of keeping an audience on the edge of their seats, and their stage presence is riveting. Keep an eye and ear out for this band--DRS is changing the face of the rock scene in Orleans, and you're gonna want to be a part of it.
