Country Punksters Dash Rip Rock Invade Green Parrot

The South’s most notorious band of country drunkster-punksters, the legendary Dash Rip Rock will explode onto The Parrot stage and undoubtedly will blow the lid completely off the joint once again.

 FeaturingGreat Southern Rock and Roll with a twist of the obscene this George Jones on acid, Hank Williams on crack style has garnered Dash Rip Rock fans around the country with a live show that is truly, and perhaps thankfully, unequaled.   The Parrot’s manager John Vagnoni reminds Dash’s hard-core fans that there will be, “No naked drumming.”

 For over twenty five years Dash Rip Rock has been spreading their haywire roots-rock mayhem all over the planet. The band has been called – punkabilly and “country punk”, but there’s just no categorizing a trio that mixes sawdust with authentic renditions of
country standards and flat out hard-core barnburners in a live show that defies all sane or sober description. Dash Rip Rock’s influences range from the Ramones to Jerry Lee Lewis to George Jones.
Dash Rip Rock has no problem accepting their world’s greatest bar band status, for the simple fact that they feel the absolute best setting to hear a blazing rock and roll show is usually in some dilapidated honky tonk or a besmudged college beer hall. After years of happily toiling in the trenches, Dash seem ready to break out and raise the roof.

With their new album, “Country Girlfriend” and sheer desperate perseverance, the Bad Boys of the Bayou may finally be getting their due, and their due to put on one more heck of at show at The Green Parrot Bar.
