Down & Dirty

 Rio Rancho, New Mexico, USA




If you like the type of rock & roll that makes your head shake, your body move, and your girlfriend wild, then meet Down & Dirty; the type of band whose sound is not only a perfect fit for your next party, but it defines the term soundtrack of your life! 2011/12 has proven to be a fantastic year, with the highly anticipated sophomore release Taste of Rock & Roll, a CD that has received countless praise, from Fans, Webzines, Magazines and Critics worldwide!

Full of youthful, raw, punky energy, the songs here may remind the listener of Motley Crue, Skid Row, Guns n Roses, but Down & Dirty have an unmistakable sound of their own through anthemic riffing rockers like the title track, Free & Young and Led Zep/Aerosmith riffing of Wild Child. If you like your rock with an Eighties vintage and more testosterone than a bus load of high schoolers on summer break, Down & Dirty have exactly the Taste Of Rock & Roll to soothe your soul. Shane Pinnegar (The Taste of Rock & Roll was voted in the top 30 releases of the year!

It is traditional, lively party rock and a damn solid release. (Sleaze Roxx)

The atmosphere on Taste of Rock & Roll is all about fun injecting a topsy derby groove which I like very much. The sky is the limit for Down & Dirty, I hope to hear more of them in the future, and yes I know this album was released earlier this year and we normally dont review older material much, but there are exceptions to the rule when the music needs to be heard. Listen to Down & Dirty cause theres plenty of talent and promise riding high. Denny Jamie (my global mind Webzine)

Taste Of Rock &Roll, the follow-up to the debut Live Fast, is filled to the brim with infectious, memorable, good time music (the rockreport)
