California based rockers; Dirty Honey gave an outstanding performance when opening for Alter Bridge and Skillet in New York City on 9/24/19 at the Sony PlayStation Theater. The band only had 30 minutes of stage time to make a memorable impression on this New York City crowd.
The band consists of Marc Labelle [vocals], John Notto [guitars], Justin Smolian [bass] and Chris Coverstone [drums]. They recently release their debut EP and their single, “When I’m Gone,” was a #3 track at Rock Radio.
Tonight the band got back to basics with their hard-driving brand of “riff rock” and cranked out their best six songs. Opening with “Scars,” dived into “Break You,” and saved their best song for last; “Rolling 7’s.” They are rock-solid and as tight of a band as you will ever hear. When the magic of writing great riffs have eluded many bands lately, it clearly shines strong with Dirty Honey. The band has a fresh take on balls-out Rock & Roll, southern blues, and big choruses while delivering a dynamic live show.
Marc is a powerhouse vocalist with tremendous charisma and tons of stage swagger. John is a dynamic searing guitar player. Justin and Chris are the backbone of the band, allowing the guitar to drive the songs. These guys know how to play their instruments, and they know how to play together. If Dirty Honey was on a mission to preserve the sanctity of classic rock in its purest form, they should consider it a job well done.
Dirty Honey is destiny to make a tremendous impact on the music industry and a spectacle on stage. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this band now before you’re seeing them from the upper deck in arenas!
