Who is The Dirt Floor Band? Five Northern California dudes playing original barefoot-punk-grass; their own special blend of skirt liftin', rump shakin', whiskey swillin' mutt music. Bringing together the sounds of bluegrass, gypsy, and punk rock - with some country ballads and a little funk to round it out- they do it all with guitars, banjos, mandolins, harmonicas, bass, drums and three singer/songwriters. Live performances showcase the band’s varied offerings with a raw, ragged-edged intensity that invites the audience to join in for a slightly insane night of music, dancing, and a damn good time.

Formed in Mendocino County in 2006, Adam Sullivan, Andrew Hudson, and Jeff Stovall started as a three-piece string band in which all three songwriters brought a range of musical tastes to the table. The result was a genre-flexing sound that became the foundation for the now five-piece band. In '08, bassist Kyle Madrigal joined, then Bobby Cochran rounded things out on the drums in '09, adding a solid, driving rhythm section. Their eponymous first album came soon after, followed by the 2010 release of a live disc, “Live At the Caspar Inn” that captures the infectious energy and down-home style that’s earned them opening slots with bands such as The Devil Makes 3, Hot Buttered Rum, Toubab Crewe, Sean Hayes, Blue Turtle Seduction, Asylum Street Spankers, Rita Hoskings, and Town Mountain, to name a few.

The band has developed a fan base drawn to their high-energy, up-tempo beat coupled with bald-faced, aggressively earnest lyrics that shamelessly delve into the more difficult and awkward sides of life. They deliver both with easy humor and an undeniable conviction that can make their songs resonate with listeners long after the music ends. Whether it’s a political song, a song rife with angst, fear, or sadness, or a pointless song that is simply an excuse to rock, the Dirt Floor Band puts everything they have into their music with reckless abandon and endearing, irreverent enthusiasm.
