DIGGIN DIRT

DIGGIN DIRT

Diggin Dirt is an undeniable force in the West Coast funk scene. With a deeply original sound and a reputation for high energy performance, this premier ensemble is a captivating scene

This seven-piece band emerging from behind the redwood curtain in Humboldt County,
California is skyrocketing through the West Coast music scene. Shoveling out their own path, and consistently wowing audiences and filling concert venues, Diggin’ Dirt is no ordinary funk and soul band. Their sounds explode off the stage with pure authentic energy, and once they have you in their clutches, the relentless dance party does not let up. Their intoxicating and infectious sound is fueled by a blazing horn section, pulsating rhythms, and searing guitars that when combined into one, have been known to entice even the shyest of wallflowers to start movin’ and groovin’. Tying it all together is the band’s frontman, whose pipes, charisma, moves, and natural-born soul launch this ensemble into rarefied air.

Behold as they layer humble influences of psychedelic rock, Motown soul, Afrobeat, and even reggae, atop a sturdy foundation of late ‘60s inspired funk music. You might have flashes of James Brown or Sly and the Family Stone, Otis Redding or Tower of Power, but make no mistake that you are in the presence of spine-tingling originality.
