One of the best up and coming rock bands, Dirty Honey put on a blistering display of high voltage energy and solid rock grooves at the House of Blues on Saturday night.

The group is out supporting their sophomore lp, Can't Find The Breaks!!

The quartet came out with a smoking version of the title track "Can't Find The Breaks!" and then immediately went into "California Dreamin'" the title track from their debut album that came out in 2021.

Vocalist Marc LeBelle is an excellent front man that keeps the audience engaged and has fantastic range.  John Notto is your classic rock guitar hero who does a great job on his Les Paul. Bassist Justin Smolian with his mounds of curly locks, brings the energy and keeps the low end thumping.   Meanwhile the newest member of the band, drummer Jaydon Bean not only keeps a steady beat, but he also provides backing vocals.

This group is a no-frills, totally live, in your face rock and roll band.  

 

Just the way it should be.

In the middle of the set, Smolian and Notto broke out acoustic guitars to play "Coming Home (Ballad of the Shire" which is about the band being in Australia, 7,000 miles away from home.

The boys kept the acoustics on and went into a country style version of The Stones' "Honkey Tonk Woman."

A slower, funkier version of Prince's "Let's Go Crazy" got many fans in the balcony up on their feet and dancing.

LeBelle went into the pit to sing "The Wire" with some fans in the front row.  The female fans turned around to film themselves singing with Marc.  However, he grabbed the phone and turned around and held it so he would be singing with them so the would be facing the stage.

It was a pretty cool moment and I'm sure it's up on TikTok or YouTube by now.

The main set ended with the song that started it for the band, "When I'm Gone."

The band returned to encore with four songs that included "Roam," "Rolling 7s" and "Satisfied."

It was a great, old school rock and roll show and the fans absolutely loved it.

Austin Meade opened the show with a solid forty-five minute set.
