Formed in 2005, Dirty Gunnz have been rocking audiences with a unique combination of 80’s hair band influenced original rock and roll along with a solid mix of “dirtied up” classic cover tunes. Bringing back the glory days of hair metal with a twist of modern rock, Dirty Gunnz have become a crowd favorite with their hook-heavy rock anthems and raucous live performances.
Members: Micheal Gunnz - Vocals, Vince Ingle - Guitar, Mark Barnhart - Drums, William Abner - Bass, Chris Anderson - Guitar
“If you thought the adrenaline and fist-pumping power of 80's rock n roll went out of fashion....The Dirty Gunnz have a message for you - think again.”— Steve Wildsmith, The Maryville Daily Times
“These guys are most excellent purveyors of the classic ’80s glam-rock, down to the makeup and occasional spandex … as well as some good-time party music. The guys suffered tragedy last month when founding member/guitarist Jed “Stacy Bullets” Cochran died, but they’ve decided to push on and turn each show into a celebration in his memory”— Steve Wildsmith, The Daily Times Weekend
“The Dirty Gunnz subscribe to the '80s philosophy that rock 'n' roll should be fun — high kicks and guitar solos and lighters held aloft and a party-like atmosphere. "We just want to have a dang good time," Hurst said. We just want to bring back rock, man, and that's what we try to do every time we play. "The way we see it, as a band we're trying to let everyday people escape from the monotony of work and bring them back to that time in their life when music was fun. It's what we grew up on and what we live now. We eat, sleep and breathe rock 'n' roll." "All of our stuff is just really sleazy — the look, the sound, everything," Hurst said. "And the last few shows, the crowd response has been amazing.”— Steve Wildsmith, The Daily Times All Press
“You've made some kick-ass rock n roll music...Phenomenal writing...These are great rock n roll glam slam songs”— Donnie Lawless, Lawless Radio
