Dirty Skirty on two big 80s Festival bills 

September 26, 2108

We are proud to announce that DIRTY SKIRTY has two festival shows coming up this fall! On Saturday, September 29 the band will once again be playing 80s In The Park in Palm Bay, FL. This will be the 3rd  year in a row (and 4th time) that Dirty Skirty will play the Space Coast's salute to rock n' roll.

A few weeks later into the fall Dirty Skirty will be playing Rockfest 80s in Miramar (just west of Ft. Lauderdale) with the likes of Ace Frehley, Vince Neil, and Night Ranger. This will be the band's first time playing the festival which takes place November 10-11, 2018.

Dirty Skirty is a 5-piece rock n' roll band with 2 albums under their belt. 2010's Long Live Rock N' Roll was an underground rocker's dream come true with all killer and no filler from start to finish. You can put the album up against any record released the past 20 years and it won't just measure up, but it will most likely knock the competition flat on it's back. The band followed up with 2014's Rebel  which moved units even faster than the predecessor. Singer Luke Stephens is the original mainstay and leader of the his pack of rock n' roll mayhem including drummer Timmy Vaughn, bassist Cezar Pentzke, and guitar players Carson Wayne and Christian McClure. 

From sleazeroxx.com : 

I don’t know much about Dirty Skirty aside from the fact they are from Florida, released their debut CD Long Live Rock N’ Roll earlier this year, and one of the most exciting new bands I’ve heard since The Last Vegas. Take equal amounts of Aerosmith, Buckcherry and Tesla and you will have the winning formula for Dirty Skirty‘s sound.

Rock N' Roll Leader 

August 18, 2017

We are very excited to announce that DIRTY SKIRTY will be performing at this year's 80s In The Park along with Jackyl, Winger, and Lynch Mob. To coincide with this exciting news the band has released a song upon you titled, "Rock N' Roll Leader." You may stream it for a limited time and purchase it right away. 

  

Be sure to check out the interview with singer Luke Stephens and drummer Timmy Vaughn over at sleazeroxx.com! 

  

Florida based sleaze rockers Dirty Skirty have released a new song entitled “Rock N’ Roll Leader” which can be streamed for a limited time on the band’s website (see bottom of website pages). 

Dirty Skirty lead vocalist Luke Stephens and drummer Timmy Vaughn recently spoke exclusively to Sleaze Roxx about the new track and the band’s plans for the future to follow up Long Live Rock N’ Roll (2010) and Rebel (2014). 

In terms of the new single, Stephens stated: “”Rock N’ Roll Leader” is what it’s called. The past two to three years, I have had some thoughts about someone who played in the band who was a dear friend and now that friendship has withered away. Like anything else that I write the lyrics come right from the heart. Whether it’s been about drowning yourself in booze, riding into the sunset, or girls there aren’t really any lines I write that don’t have an element of truth to it. This one is a self reflection of what the band is and we are. Collectively, it is Dirty Skirty speaking directly to one person in particular. The words are represented to serve as a stamp in time while at the same time a continuation of Skirty forever.”

Lurking in the waters 

July 10, 2017

Hello lads!!! Dirty Skirty is still here for you although we haven't played shows much and updated our sites you can still enjoy us on a daily basis. Just pop in your Rebel or Long Live Rock N' Roll album and it's like we are right there with you. We just did a gig with 4/5 original members in our old watering hole and had an absolute blast doing so. 

Lots and lots of songs are being worked on with some familiar names in the band of old and Carson and ...Timmy are still part of the family as well. We will find the right time before the end of the year to make some noise for you. 

We love you all 

DIRTY SKIRTY

A long awaited updated from Dirty Skirty. 

October 29, 2016


With scattered shows opening for National acts here and there as well as working on new music the band DIRTY SKIRTY is doing what independent blue collared bands do...keeping the train rolling. The past 12 months has seen the band as direct support for Buckcherry and Quiet Riot. They also played for the second year in a row at 80s In The Park 2016 with bands such as Stryper and Queensryche. With guitar player Kenny Baker tied up with his guitar-tech duties for Yngwie Malmsteen the band has replaced him with youngster Christian McClure from the band up and coming group Skar. He is bringing energy and new ideas to the band that will bleed through for their 3rd studio release.

You can already hear one of their new recordings "Ride High" right here on this site. The band has other tunes on tape and is finishing up pre-production on 3 songs as well. "It's a process that as long as we keep moving in the right direction with creating good stuff we are in good shape. I don't settle for anything but the best out of creating new songs. Every lyric has to serve a purpose and every guitar lick has to get the heads bobbing," says front man Luke Stephens. Shows are already added, lookout soon for a spring run up the state of Florida.
