Dyrty Byrds / Bio

Since forming in 2009 Dyrty Byrds have been giving steady doses of southern influenced rock & roll to the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The band was born out of the desire to bring this sound to the mountains and over the past few years have been playing shows all over Colorado, the South East, and points in between. With Eric Martinez (Bloodkin) and Tori Pater (Polytoxic), both sharing in the songwriting duties the Dyrty Byrds hit on a wide range of musical styles ranging from smokey blues numbers and pop rockers, to large scale orchestrations.

In their short life the Dyrty Byrds have been proud and honored to have shared the stage with some great musicians and influences such as:

Daniel Hutchens (Bloodkin, Romper Stompers) 

Eric Carter (Bloodkin)
Todd Nance (Widespread Panic, Barbara Cue, Romper Stompers) 

John “Jojo” Herman (Widespread Panic, Jojo’s Mardi Gras Band)
William Tonks (Bloodkin, Barbara Cue, Romper Stompers)
Cecil “P-Nut” Daniels
Wally Ingram (Stockholm Syndrome, Sheryl Crow) 

Jerry Joseph (Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons, Stockholm Syndrome)
Taylor Hicks (American Idol) 

In an age of synthetic instruments and pitch bent vocals the Dyrty Byrds have stayed true to the classic rock, guitar drivin style of rock & roll while giving it their own Rocky Mountain twist.
