Butcher Brown w/ Dirty Revival

Butcher Brown

Butcher Brown is an up-to-the minute throwback to the great progressive jazz bands of
the 60s and 70s. They are a hard-working band in an era where most groups are
fleeting assemblages, together only long enough to record. Their organic coherence
emerges from long collaboration as a group of equals rather than a top-down, leader/
sideman lineup. They are building their audience by any means necessary, combining a
conventional, label-oriented approach with releasing “underground” tapes, disciplined
rehearsal and engaging, adventurous performance.

Fronted by Portland native, Sarah Clarke, who’s powerful vocals and engaging stage presence immediately command attention, the rest of the band is comprised of six exceptional musicians, Evan “Evvnflo” Simko (Guitar + MC), Terry Drysdale (Drums), Jon Shaw (Bass), Ben Turner (Keys), Chris Hardin (Tenor Sax), Thomas Barber (Trumpet). Many of them friends since high school, each player is as good as the next and all of them exceptional in their own way, Dirty Revival functions like a well oiled machine with every part doing exactly what it’s supposed to.

Dirty Revival’s democratic approach to music shows in their songwriting, their original music effortlessly incorporating several different genres of music. At times showcasing their unique take on the soul and funk sounds of the 60’s and 70’s, then, straddling the line between rock band and pop band. The care the group takes in the arrangement of their original music is reflected in their cover choices, known for their dynamic recreations of classic songs by artists ranging from NIN to Black Sabbath and Rage Against the machine, illustrates why it is difficult to put the Dirty Revival in any one genre of music.
