Bio

The Dirty Rooks bring their Mad Dogs and Englishmen-style rock and roll to the stage with a rotating cast of 13. Along with the classic instruments of rock brought by the original 5 members, The Dirty Rooks feature a screaming horn section, honky-tonk piano, and take fans to The Church of Rock and Roll with gospel backing vocals and a roaring Hammond Organ.

The Dirty Rooks' have produced two albums. Their first, self-titled, release (2007) was recorded at Blue Room Studio by Edgars Legzdin and was mastered by Tom Bethel at Acoustik Musik, Ltd in Akron, Ohio.

Their second album, Sugar Mama, (2010) was recorded in Chicago at Giant Squid Audio and was mastered by Mike Hagler, who has worked with artists including Wilco, Jon Langford/The Mekons, The Redwalls, and The New Pornographers, at King Size Audio Labs
