Dirty Bird Band played at our wedding in April. They traveled all the way up to Fresno for our big day and took care of all the details - from coordinating with the reception venue, to setting everything up in an unfamiliar setting. I didn't have to worry about a thing. The set-up was perfect and it didn't take long for the party to get started once we arrived at the reception. Dirty Bird Band played all the songs we wanted - they had all of our guests dancing the night away. Guests of all ages stayed on the dance floor until the late hours of the evening and everyone continued talking about how fun the wedding was - the music, the dancing - the next day. My husband and I like a good party, and Dirty Bird Band provided just that for our Big Day. This band has definitely built a reputation for themselves and I would (and have) recommended them to EVERY bride and groom looking for live music for their wedding.

A few months before I even met my husband I was at a Christmas Party and Dirty Bird was playing. I turned to my friend and said, "This is the band that I want for my wedding". Once I actually had a fiance I decided it was time to get in touch with Dirty Bird to see if my dream of having them play at our wedding was even a possiblity. So I met with Kurt, the drummer, for coffee and it seemed like it was all going to come together. I was so excited to take my fiance, friends and family to one of their concerts at The Belly Up for a "preview" and everyone loved them! Dirty Bird is the band that gets everyone out on the dance floor. If you want a band that ROCKS THE HOUSE...Dirty Bird is your band!

Dirty Bird had every single one of our guests on their feet!

AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!! Our wedding just wouldnt have been the same without Dirty Bird. The one thing that was very important for me and my fiance was high-energy, live music that would ensure the dance floor was full throughout the night and Dirty Bird delivered! Not only do the look the part (well dressed, young and good looking) but they rock out all night. My wedding was a few weeks ago and I am still getting tons of compliments from our friends and family. Hiring Dirty Bird for our wedding was the best decision and I can't begin to thank them enough and sing their praises to all my future bride friends!

The show was excellent!

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for your performance at the Arizona Cardinals Draft Day Party. The show was excellent and the professionalism shown by Dirty Bird was greatly appreciated. The stage show and songs performed were a perfect mix for our crowd and were greatly received by the staff as well.

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you and certainly look forward to working with you all again in the future.

Fabulous & Fun!

I love the Dirty Bird Band! They are so engaging and entertaining! If you are looking for a wedding band that can play a variety of songs and get everyone up singing and dancing, I highly recommend this band. I've seen them play at a few different venues and they played at a friends wedding in July and they are incredible. You can tell these guys love playing music and have fun while they're up on stage - they really get a crowd going. High energy and super fun to dance to - you will love them too!

Dirty Birdie!

We love Dirty Bird! We have seen them play at venues such as Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach and Beaumont's in La Jolla, as well as a private party in Del Mar. Their playlist includes a variety of music, from all of the timeless sing-a-longs, to more contemporary favorites. They are a great party band for any type of occasion, and they really know how to put on a great performance. I recommend checking them out on September 4 at Qualcomm!
