Asheville NC’s DIRTY DEAD are literally on fire. With high-energy, modern interpretations of the classic Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia Band catalog, DIRTY DEAD are calling the music higher and further than in a long time!
With an eclectic mix of players from various styles of music — as the Grateful Dead were –something new, fresh and exciting is happening. Psychedelia, reggae, funk and hip-hop in a Grateful Dead song? OK, got to see this! THE SOUND grew out of guitarist / flautist PAUL DRUM DECIRCE’s feeling the urge for the Dead sound to evolve further — further than trying to imitate or even emulate the great bands accomplishments.

GRATEFUL DEAD played at the foot of the pyramids and JERRY GARCIA rocked for thirty years … no need to try and copy that. INSTEAD, the band simply lead their individual styles to a mash up…and the result quite simply is … DIRTY! FUN, HI-ENERGY interpretations are the result and since their first gig in September of ’16, DD fans have been supporting and pushing this unique sound.

DIRTY DEAD was formed by PAUL DRUM DECIRCE, a well known flautist/guitarist in the WNC music scene. Paul’s music has received a lot of local press during 2006-2010, and was the founding member of PEACE JONES. He has worked extensively with THE SCREAMING J’S, YESS-I, JARVIS JENKINS and many others.

On the guitar and mandolin beside him is JOHN HUMPHRIES, a great country-rock Ween influenced whiz kid. On keyboards is BRYAN SOLLEVELD. On bass is ERIC SWANSON. On drums is SEAN MASON, long-time drummer in the WNC jam scene and the steam behind the high energy live performance. COME GET DIRTY with us at our next show!
