This is an archive of the band profile for Dirty Fakirs.

Dirty Fakirs are a 6-piece from Hebden Bridge who have been bringing their unique style of super heavy northern grooves to audiences since August 2006. In this short space of time the band have already amassed a massive fan base in the local area and their songs currently available on MySpace for download, "Freaky Dreaming", "Party's Over, Rory", "Charles Bronson" and "Looking for a Fight" have been met with glowing feedback.

On vocal duties are Vinny and Jess, delivering memorable, original melodies that loosely span soul, blues and funk; Ben on guitar lays down heavy riffs that add a dark, dirty and rock-tinged flavour to the mix; funk-fuelled, driving basslines come courtesy of Rich; on drums Casey plays with an energy and natural talent that sits perfectly; and finally Rob’s trumpet licks lend the whole sound an added jazzy dimension that is a consistent favourite with live audiences..
