About Dirty Revival:
Dirty Revival, a seven piece soul/rock band hailing from Portland and is is quickly gaining notoriety for their inspired songwriting and impressive live performances and has been electrifying stages across the US since 2013.
Fronted by Portland native, Sarah Clarke, who’s powerful vocals and engaging stage presence immediately command attention, the rest of the band is comprised of six exceptional musicians, Evan “Evvnflo” Simko (Guitar + MC), Terry Drysdale (Drums), Jon Shaw (Bass), Ben Turner (Keys), Chris Hardin (Tenor Sax), Thomas Barber (Trumpet). Many of them friends since high school, each player is as good as the next and all of them exceptional in their own way, Dirty Revival functions like a well oiled machine with every part doing exactly what it’s supposed to.
Dirty Revival’s democratic approach to music shows in their songwriting, their original music effortlessly incorporating several different genres of music. At times showcasing their unique take on the soul and funk sounds of the 60’s and 70’s, then, straddling the line between rock band and pop band. The care the group takes in the arrangement of their original music is reflected in their cover choices, known for their dynamic recreations of classic songs by artists ranging from NIN to Black Sabbath and Rage Against the machine, illustrates why it is difficult to put the Dirty Revival in any one genre of music.
Dirty Revival has shared the stage with many legendary acts including George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Michael Franti, The Motet, Gift Of Gab, Lyrics Born, and members of The Meters, George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo Modeliste. Participating in several notable events and venues, including Waterfront Blues Festival (OR), World Music Festival (CA), Arise Music Festival (CO), Upstream 2018 (WA), The Filmore (SF) and many more wrapped into the the several years of multi regional touring they have under their belt. Dirty Revival has also spent time in studio releasing a full length album (self-titled, Dirty Revival) and a 7” record (So Cold).
On stage or in your record player, Dirty Revival will captivate you from the very first note and give you a musical experience you will never forget.
“…I’ve often asked myself what funk would sound like if it was being made today with the same passion it was made with in its heyday. I believe we may have found the answer.”
~ Landon Kulmon, Daytrotter + Paste Magazine
“…Dirty Revival, one of the tightest bands I have ever heard.”
~ Zigaboo Modeliste, The Meters
“…(Dirty Revival has) tapped rollicking soul and Hip Hop influences to become one of the cities most buzzed about acts.”
~ The Oregonian
