All Aboard the Dirt Train!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us in Dirt!

Man, it's been a great few months since the last time we did a news update. Several more shows have been booked, including a few that we've been anticipating for quite some time.

This past Saturday at Johnny Malloys in Medina, Dirt played it's 30th show. With two more scheduled for 2017 in December, we're looking to cap a remarkable 2017 in style!

Our first show this month is one that means a great deal to our frontman John Raab. A Wellington native and life-long resident, John will get the chance to perform at a venue in his hometown for the first time ever. Thank you to the Red Iron Bar & Grille in Downtown Wellington for booking us! This show is this coming Saturday, Dec. 2. Get there early because we're anticpating a full house.

Our next and last show of the year (for now) is Saturday, Dec. 16 at the Sly Fox in North Olmsted. This will be our third show at the Sly Fox (all in 2017) and we expect it to be our best there. It will be the first time performing as a four-piece with Jason, so we expect it to be a phenomenal performance. Our friends Evil Eye will open up with a set of music focusing on Dio and Yngwie covers. We're excited to give them their first show at the Sly Fox and we hope this opens the door for them for more in 2018.

We picked up a last-second show on Nov. 18 opening for our friends A Few Fighters at iggy's in Lakewood. We parlayed that gig into our first headlining show at Iggy's on Cinco De Mayo (May 5). And, we may be playing with A Few Fighters at some other high profile shows in 2018. Stay tuned!

On Thanksgiving Eve last year, we played at a jam night at Ace's in North Ridgeville. It did not go well, as Matt couldn't play and Eric (our other guitarist) did not perform well (we dismissed him shortly afterward). One year later, we opened for our friends Mellow Villains in Alliance at Jupiter Studios. Our debut in both the town and the venue and it went very well!

Today, we not only rebooked a show at Johnny Malloys in Medina (they loved us), but we also secured our first show at Smedley's in Kamm's Corner in Cleveland!

Dirt went over the 1,000-fan mark on our Facebook page (getting their faster than Sleeplord, by the way) and have already surpassed the 1100 mark as well.

And our trio of shows in late October-November (Laporte, Shakers Tavern, Mutt & Jeff's) were all off the charts. Shakers already rebooked us for Feb. 9. We anticipate that Laporte and Mutt's will be following suit very soon. And both the Jailhouse Taverne in Grafton and the Lorain Palace's 6th St. Experience have been in touch about some summer shows as well!

Thank you to everyone who has attended a Dirt show, bought a shirt, vouched for us at a venue, booked us, allowed us to open for them, opened for us, helped us load and unload gear, and run sound for us in 2017! You guys are awesome - WE ARE DIRT!

Stay tuned for more! Jump aboard, because the Dirt Train is picking up steam and gaining several regular stops!
