Dirty Knobs – June 12, 2015 The Sweetwater Café, Mill Valley , CA
By Andy Goldfinger
The Dirty Knobs have hit the road. That’s right folks a little mini tour 3 nights in a row starting June 10th at Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz, followed by June 11th at the City Winery in Napa and then, yes, the Sweetwater Café in Mill Valley, and let’s not forget the finale at the Lido Theater in Newport Beach, CA on Friday June 19th. I was very fortunate to be able to attend the show at the Sweetwater and the Lido in Newport Beach.
I was just ecstatic to see the place packed to the gills with Mill Valleyites and the San Franciscans. The Knobs did not disappoint. The set included rousing versions of Humdinger, Easy Wind and the new songs Stop Yankin My Johnson and Choke the Chicken. The band’s four piece power quartet featuring Gator on guitar, Ape on Guitar, Swampfox banging the skins and Crawdaddy slappin the bass. The giant sound that these four expert musicians produce is second to none.
Anytime the Dirty Knobs are out on the town playing live do not miss the opportunity to see them. A Rock n Roll Hall of Fame guitarist and some of the most talented and accomplished musicians you will ever come across are not to be missed
