Diggin Dirt
Diggin Dirt
Reminiscent of James Brown, and Sly and the Family Stone, Diggin Dirt, is a band that is very well known around Humboldt County and the Pacific Northwest for uniquely blending together their influences that range from funk to blues to reggae to psychedelic-rock, to make something that is all together new and old sounding at the same time. Diggin Dirt are an 8 piece band with tight horns and an even tighter rhythm section and they never fail to keep the dance floor moving all night long. Excitement, top notch stage presence, and high quality original songs are sure to be delivered in more than adequate dosages with Diggin Dirt on stage. Whether you intend to or not, Diggin Dirt will have you moving from your head to your toes if you happen to find yourself in the same room as this extremely funky powerhouse of a band.
