Recent happy customer

"I booked 'Dead Broke and Dirty' for my referendum party in November 2014, they proved very entertaining and those who were at my event are still talking about how much they loved the band even now! Their choice of classic songs is spot on and keeps the party going with a mix of lively dance rock n roll tunes and songs that people know and love. The strong female vocals is a powerful feature of the band, accompanied brilliantly by soloing electric guitar, and distinctive drums and bass. All the members of the band were very professional and showed excellent musicianship during the show. Their love for the music showed on stage and was nothing but contagious. Excellent party music with a retro twist that gets your guests on the dance floor!"
