"It takes guts to play things straight these days as opposed to trying to add the latest Band of Horses style or whatever else is hip. These guys have not only the skill, but the moxy needed to bring it home. They are off on a tour of the south and if they get crowds like tonight (swelling to nearly 100 by now), they should do very well." - DC Rock Live
"This is the perfect jam for a Friday night. Damn that is some
fine Rock & Roll. This really reminds me of some prime Rolling Stones. And a guitar solo! FUCK YEAH! We do not, I repeat, do not have enough guitar solos in music nowadays."
"The Dirty Names are true showmen and real troopers. After spending time intheir freezing van waiting to start the set they refused to allow it to impact their show. Each player had a chance to shine without upstaging fellow band members while frontman Cofer kept a tight rein on his position." -Music Connection Magazine
"Whoever said Rock ‘N Roll is dead obviously hasn’t sampled the Dirty Names.The mid-Atlantic region based group takes the foundation of rock we love, but adds their own spin.Their debut EP “Rock and Roll Mind Control” exudes gritty vocals with a rhythmically charged delivery."
"While all of their music have strong ties to classic rock&roll, it's clear that Dirty Names have stumbled onto the nicestkind of swagger. Their songs range from classic rock, to swing, to boogie, with hints of the Rolling Stones, and I'd
even dare to assert an aura of the free wheeling G.Love and Special Sauce."
