ABOUT US

We are a small-town experiment of Indie Rock and Blues from Ladner BC. Formerly known as Dirty Mike and the Boys, the name change coincides with the release of our first full-length album titled “Farewell To The Boys” (May 2018).

 

Our vibe blends from influences like Alabama Shakes and Arctic Monkeys. Frontman, Mike Stewart, plays a hybrid chicken-pluck guitar style that drives a dynamic, layered sound. Delivering an “ideal mix of roots-y and modern,” our lyrics are crisp and engineered with indie rock nuance. We officially formed in 2014, but the boys have been playing together for over 10 years.

 

We have played nearly a hundred shows around the Lower Mainland. A few notable performances are kicking off the main stage at Legends Valley Music Festival in 2016 and playing the Khatsahlano Street Party in 2017 and 2018.  The Daily Hive placed us on their list of Upcoming Local Bands to see in 2018. 

"The band plays a melodic type of blues rock that has the attitude of a classic rock band, mixed with the smooth edges of more contemporary coffee house alternative"
