They Make It Look So Easy

It’s So Easy. It is, when you think about it. DIRTY HONEY says so. Now I don’t really know what they are exactly talking about, but I will say if they’re talking about playing music for scads of people being easy, I believe them. 

For this four piece, playing swanky southern kissed rock and roll makes it look like they are spreading butter on a biscuit. Since 2017, the band has been throwing the rock to fans all over the globe. Tonight in Dallas is no different and I’m super stoked they are support for MAMMOTH WVH. Gracing Dallas with this kinda sweetness makes what I do so easy. 

Tonight, as the lights are brought up, audience is immediately drawn to Justin Smolian and John Notto, bass and guitar, respectively. And to those fans, it must have felt like an eternity before Marc LaBelle came on, because there was definitely a brief pause; comparable to the air being sucked out of the room, just before an eruption of screams broke out and arms flailed towards the stage. DIRTY HONEY has quickly amassed a following here in Dallas as evidentiary from the throngs throwing themselves closer to the barrier. 

What you hear is what you get Lovelies, from both bands i might add. Rock has not sounded or felt this good in a long time! Having seen DIRTY HONEY a few times, I’ve yet to be disappointed. The love of music and performing is evident in every song and I feel so great during their set!

Playing for a full hour and included songs from DIRTY HONEY’S self-titled debut album from 2019, including “When I’m Gone,” the track that blazed the charts to #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream and Hard Rock Charts – the only unsigned artist ever to achieve this, I might add. The track was the first song from the band’s self-titled debut EP, produced by Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine), recorded in Byron Bay, Australia, and released in March 2019. 

DIRTY HONEY’S second single/video, the loaded-with-swagger “Rollin 7s,” went to #3 at Rock Radio, and its music video has racked up north of seven-million YouTube plays. Between the Fall of 2018 and early 2020, they opened for The Who, Guns N’ Roses, and Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators. 

Having been recently introduced to MAMMOTH WVH and not being as familiar with his music, I didn’t know what to expect. I loved the set and found myself singing along to more songs than I thought I knew. Wolf’s ability to go from instrument to instrument was impressive. Also, there was an honesty in the music that easily took precedence on stage, despite the life-sized standing image of EVH on stage; smiling as he did. I felt honored to have experienced this set, for a few reasons that I’ll save for another day.

The Young Guns Tour is a tour for rockers and rollers. Both bands have made monumental strides in an industry that sometimes isn’t so sweet. MAMMOTH WVH and DIRTY HONEY have gobs of dates left and these are listed on the band’s socials!

And stay tuned for photos from the show in Dallas at House of Blues!
