Welcome to the Dirty Muggs complete entertainment experience. Dirty Muggs is a high energy, choreographic machine that provides everything you have always wanted in a band. A diverse and eclectic music set list that calls you to get on the dance floor, tap your toe, or shake something. Dirty Muggs is the creative outlet formed by a skilled set of musicians/entertainers who have World Class and Hall of Fame Experience.

Lead Guitarist and band founder, Gary “Dee Dee” James of St. Louis, Missouri began his professional music career with a group of child hood friends including Edgar Hinton (bass guitarist Dirty Muggs) that ultimately landed a deal with Capital Records. The group had Top 40 Hits under the name Da’Krash and Kool Skool and was produced by legendary songwriter, Jesse Johnson of “The Time”. After the group split the members went on to pursue other musical interests. Dee Dee took his guitar chops on the road. His tours included concerts at worldwide venues playing for millions with the likes of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Bootsy Collins and George Clinton in addition to tours with Color Me Bad and Paula Abdul…Years of combined experience on stage both touring and with St. Louis’ popular cover bands inspired him to create his own version of a total entertainment experience bringing to life Dirty Muggs.

Bass Guitarist Edgar Hinton “Boni”, of St. Louis enjoyed a successful run with the world famous group Outkast and Goodie Mob. He landed in Europe where he remained in the music scene for the next ten years playing throughout Germany and the islands off the cost of Spain. When he decided to bring the Euro-flavor back home fate stepped in. The timing of his return was perfectly synchronized with Dee Dee’s new musical venture. The childhood friends maintain the same vigor and passion in their performance as when they started their career. That musical chemistry is the secret to the rhythm you feel at the show every night.

Lead Vocal features the talented silky smooth tones of Justin Clay. The junior of the group, Justin started his singing career at an early age of 10 by being part of the popular local group, Teen 11. He has appeared on stage with a variety of local groups, gospel ensembles and performing his original music produced largely by Dee Dee James. Justin’s vocals are so distinct that you only have to hear him once and you will never forget him.
On tubbs, “The Son Star Child”, Dirty Lynt… A man amongst boys.

In all the remaining cast of Dirty Muggs brings star power that is sure to capture the hearts of new fans wherever they play. The choreography that is included with each show takes one back to the real music era that would have featured the likes of the Jackson 5 and Earth wind and Fire. Welcome to the “now” era. Having played in casinos and Four Star hotels along with a variety of private events that include St. Louis, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles, Dirty Muggs has something for everyone. The next step for you is to become part of the masses that have found getting Dirty with Dirty Muggs an experience that just can’t be washed away in one night.

Funky Butt Brass Band

Saturday, 4:00-7:00pm

The Funky Butt Brass Band was formed in St. Louis, Missouri in 2007 by six talented musicians who respect and revere the New Orleans brass band tradition. The FBBB takes classic New Orleans brass tunes and gives them a twist, in the style of Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rebirth and Bonerama. But don’t be surprised if you also hear some Motown, Southern rock, Memphis soul, Chicago blues and St. Louis R&B in the mix.

The band has been voted Best Funk/Soul Band at the Riverfront Times Music Awards for four of the past five years. They have played such prestigious festivals as the King Biscuit Blues Festival, Roots N Blues N BBQ, Blissfest, Taste of St. Louis, Columbus Jazz & Rib Fest, Gumbo Ya Ya and the Big Muddy Blues Festival. And Funky Butt Brass Band has shared the stage with some legendary Louisiana artists, including Dr. John, Rebirth Brass Band, Bonerama, Chubby Carrier, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, New Orleans Suspects and the Royal Southern Brotherhood.

Dogs of Society

Saturday, 8:00-11:00pm

Let The Dogs take you on a ride through one of the most epic rock catalogs of the 1970s with Elton John’s smash hits like Bennie and the Jets, Tiny Dancer and Crocodile Rock to deeper cuts like Funeral for a Friend, Madman Across the Water, All the Girls Love Alice, Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters and many, many more. No tracks. No tricks. Just a killer rock band delivering a dynamic, ALL-LIVE performance every night (with that extra sauce that comes from an authentic, live show). Just like Elton and his band.

From the first time John Gore heard Elton John’s Crocodile Rock on the radio, he was hooked. As a wee lad, Elton’s incredible songs and musicianship inspired John to play the piano and sing. And he has rocked the piano and mic ever since, performing in bands since he was 10 years old… original, cover, touring and now tribute. Although he’s often been told he looks and sounds like ‘70s-era Elton John, John Gore formed Dogs of Society with the idea that Elton’s songs (not costumes) should be the star of the show. Featuring an incredible lineup of accomplished musicians including John Gore (aka Elton Juan), Steve Johnston (guitar), Louis Michael (keyboard, accordion, guitar), Curt Shaw (bass guitar) and Dave Johnson (drums), Dogs of Society will blow you away with their authentic rock ‘n roll tribute to the one of the most celebrated musicians in rock history.
