Hear what people are saying!
“A fresh and refreshing album of great songs arranged perfectly and played to the highest standard for our listening pleasure.” – Uber Rock
“‘Losing The Frequency’, a high octane homage to the old days of AM radio. Expect huge hooky choruses and summer vibes with the piano out there, front and centre.” – Real Gone Rocks
Pumped that I just sent off my new record to the critically acclaimed Wyatt Funderburk to mix! Soon I’ll make another announcement about who’s putting it out, where you can pick it up and all that. Thanks to all that came out to our show with Smash Mouth, too! We’ll see you cats in October when we take the road again! Also, Spain, we’re coming back for you in 2017!
One night only! Kris Rodgers & The Dirty Gems pay tribute to Sir Elton John in Portland, ME at Empire on May 13th. This is a full show featuring 20+ Elton John classics, b-sides, and rarities. Click here to buy tickets now! Don’t miss it! Here’s a clip from a few years ago!
Happy New Year to all you rock n’ rollers out there! And everyone else too, I guess. 2016 is going to be a great year for rock n’ roll and I hope to see you all at some point before 2017! I’ve got a lot in the works with a new album, new EP to follow, heading back to Spain, jamming with friends, and much more!
This month I’ll be heading out west to sit in with fellow garage rock n’ rollers Soraia, at Echoplex in L.A. for the The Muff’s 25th Anniversary show! Also on the bill as direct support is Prima Donna, so it’s not one you want to miss if you’re in the area! It’s a Little Steven’s Underground Garage show, as well as being hosted by Mighty Manfred of The Woggles, and a great UG DJ in his own right. I’ve got more news for this April, but first let’s get pumped for L.A.!
Hope everyone’s fall is going killer! We’re getting ready to head into the studio in a couple weeks to start recording two new albums! One is the follow up to 2014’s Headlines, Losing the Frequency. The other, Get Your Fix, is an EP of rock n’ roll covers by the likes of the Diamond Dogs, The Beach Boys, and more! Stay tuned in 2016!
