As Girls Go

It’s rare that two female artists join forces and it actually works on both the artistic AND personal level.

It’s rare that two female artists join forces and it actually works on both the artistic AND personal level. As Girls Go is one of those rare partnerships that works… and then some. *** Nashville-based recording artists Kimber Cleveland and Roxie Randle were busy touring independently but interested in varying their routines by teaming up for a few shows. Forming a duo was never the plan… just two friends occasionally sharing the stage. But when a buzz started building and booking offers started coming in, they quickly realized they needed to make it official. As Girls Go was born. *** As Girls Go performs popular Top 40 music (everything from Fleetwood Mac to Miranda Lambert to Lady Gaga) while offering a substantial catalog of top-notch original songs, as well. Their adult contemporary rock sound is defined by two driving acoustic guitars, spot-on harmonies, and a contagious energy that immediately draws you in. Not surprisingly, comparisons have been made to The Indigo Girls, The Wreckers, and The Story. *** Roxie and Kimber are both undeniably compelling solo artists, but when you put them together, it’s magic. They compliment each other in every way. They bring their friendship and mutual respect to the stage, and the combination of their music skills makes the live show experience one you won’t soon forget. As Girls Go truly is a collaboration that is greater than the sum of it’s parts.

Welcome to the Dirty Muggs complete entertainment experience. Dirty Muggs is a high energy, choreographic machine that provides everything you have always wanted in a band. A diverse and eclectic music set list that calls you to get on the dance floor, tap your toe, or shake something. Dirty Muggs is the creative outlet formed by a skilled set of musicians/entertainers who have World Class and Hall of Fame Experience.

Lead Guitarist and band founder, Gary “Dee Dee” James of St. Louis, Missouri began his professional music career with a group of child hood friends including Edgar Hinton (bass guitarist Dirty Muggs) that ultimately landed a deal with Capital Records. The group had Top 40 Hits under the name Da’Krash and Kool Skool and was produced by legendary songwriter, Jesse Johnson of “The Time”. After the group split the members went on to pursue other musical interests. Dee Dee took his guitar chops on the road. His tours included concerts at worldwide venues playing for millions with the likes of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Bootsy Collins and George Clinton in addition to tours with Color Me Bad and Paula Abdul…Years of combined experience on stage both touring and with St. Louis’ popular cover bands inspired him to create his own version of a total entertainment experience bringing to life Dirty Muggs.

Bass Guitarist Edgar Hinton “Boni”, of St. Louis enjoyed a successful run with the world famous group Outkast and Goodie Mob. He landed in Europe where he remained in the music scene for the next ten years playing throughout Germany and the islands off the cost of Spain. When he decided to bring the Euro-flavor back home fate stepped in. The timing of his return was perfectly synchronized with Dee Dee’s new musical venture. The childhood friends maintain the same vigor and passion in their performance as when they started their career. That musical chemistry is the secret to the rhythm you feel at the show every night.

Technical Director/ Keyboardist, Roddrick Smith brings to the party a wide variety of skills that include former Musical Director for the group TLC. Rod is the ultimate “jack of all trades” mastering the art of synthesizing as well as backup vocals.

Lead Vocal features the talented silky smooth tones of Justin Clay. The junior of the group, Justin started his singing career at an early age of 10 by being part of the popular local group, Teen 11. He has appeared on stage with a variety of local groups, gospel ensembles and performing his original music produced largely by Dee Dee James. Justin’s vocals are so distinct that you only have to hear him once and you will never forget him.

On tubbs, “The Son Star Child”, Dirty Lynt… A man amongst boys.

In all the remaining cast of Dirty Muggs brings star power that is sure to capture the hearts of new fans wherever they play. The choreography that is included with each show takes one back to the real music era that would have featured the likes of the Jackson 5 and Earth wind and Fire. Welcome to the “now” era. Having played in casinos and Four Star hotels along with a variety of private events that include St. Louis, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles, Dirty Muggs has something for everyone. The next step for you is to become part of the masses that have found getting Dirty with Dirty Muggs an experience that just can’t be washed away in one night.
