Dirty Red & the Soulshakers - view website
ARTIST BIO: Dirty Red and the SoulShakers is a modern day blues band, built on old-school influences, and a mutual love for the down and dirty style blues that has come to define the band’s original sound. A dangerously tight rhythm section backs a funky groove guaranteed to get the ladies dancing and the good times flowing. Add a lone, lean guitar, blues harp and soul-filled vocals and everybody’s in trouble. With influences varying from Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Junior Wells, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, R.L Burnside, Buddy Guy, Buddy Holly, Michael Bloomfield, Otis Rush., Otis Redding, James Brown, Booker T and The MGs, Jimmy Reed, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Elmore James, and Bo Diddley, it is clear that the SoulShakers have set themselves a high standard for delivering a pure sound worthy of such company.
