DIRTY BIRDZ AND THE HORN STARZ / Bio

Dirty Birdz stand alone, coming at you like a blast furnace of sweat, soul and passion. The San Diego-based bundle of sonic dynamite packs old-school entertainment style and hard rock attitude into every huge fire-breathing note. This combination of soul-steeped rock n roll and hell-raising showmanship is difficult to capture in words and must be experienced live to be fully appreciated. Dirty Birdz method features thundering guitars, a stabbing horn section and choreographed background vocalists beneath the screaming enthusiasm of lead singer Mercedes Scalzitti. The lanky, lusty vocalist is one part Janis, one part Etta James, and 100% incandescent energy, as she pulls a crowd in with her tigers roar of a voice and unrestrained stage antics. While their delivery is very rock n roll, the sound is also hallmarked by a genuine feel for vintage black music that can only come from being serious students of blues and R&B.
