|Dirtball Deluxe was born in a garage while talking shop over a muscle car, and it cut it’s teeth rehearsing in a chrome cantina surrounded by motorcycles, engines, and trucks. They’ve taken that raw power approach, and turned it into a live show. While it’s gigging life started as a pure country band, the group has evolved by adding members and material each with their own influences and style. Seeing and hearing them now takes you across many genres, from Traditonal Country, Classic Rock, to Oldies, Southern Rock, Modern Country, Pop, and a few Hard Rock songs for good measure. Their versatility ensures a good time is had by all who attend their events. They’ve got a rhythm and bruise style that puts an edge and grit to everything they do.|
From the Band
For Immediate Release
Dirtball Deluxe Music
Dirtball Deluxe will be hosting a CD Release Party on March 1st at Delano Lanes.
This will mark the release of their debut double album, Further Down the Highway Vol 1 and 2. There will be CD’s available for purchase at this event. The show will begin at 9 PM, and feature a full slate of Cover Tunes from some of our favorite artists, and a few performances of originals from the record.
Further Down the Highway was written and recorded by Dirtball Deluxe, featuring work written with Jay Skipworth. Guest musicians on the album include, Jesse Ray Ernster of the Killer Hayseeds, Bronson Bergeson of Turpentine Wine, Joe Sikorski of Section 30, and local singer/songwriter Jayme Johnson.
When asked to describe the sound of the album, Graunke was quoted as saying “Volume 1 features 10 songs of good quality dancin beer drinkin music, and Volume 2 took on a bit darker, heavier feel. It’s a very versatile record that covers a wide variety of genres, since we are fans of all kinds of music we didn’t want to limit ourselves to a particular style with our songwriting. All the songs are telling stories about different events that either affected us, or someone we care about”
The Digital downloads will be available beginning Tuesday March 4, on iTunes, Amazon MP3, and CD Baby.
Delano Lanes is located at 429 Babcock Blvd in Delano MN. There will be no cover charge for this event. For more information head to www.dirtballdeluxe.com.
