"Blues/Rock fury straight out of the Motor City. Dirty Basement Blues music is as gritty and unique as the town they represent". Formed in early 2012, DBB started turning heads from day one. Originally a trio, the band is comprised of founding members Mike Conley on drums, Bryan Miller on bass, and Joe Stanley on guitar. Shortly after forming, the group added prodigious voice of Frank Grimaldi and seasoned soul man, Pete Zajicek on keys. With the lineup in place, DBB began to hone their dynamic sound built on eclectic original material and high output live shows.

After winning the final round of the Detroit Blues Society "Blues Challenge" in 2013, DBB traveled to Memphis, TN to compete in the International Blues Challenge with over 200 bands from across the globe. The experience at the IBC lit a fire in their hearts and upon returning, they feverishly began working on their seminal debut album "Coming Clean" with producer and Detroit Blues legend, "Motor City" Josh Ford.

Released in July 2014, "Coming Clean" has garnered massive FM and online radio attention worldwide, generated glowing reviews, and has recently been accepted to the PANDORA music genome. Most recently, the album has been nominated for "Outstanding Blues Recording" at the 2015 Detroit Music Awards. The band itself has also been nominated as "Outstanding Blues Act" for a '15 DMA.

With a LIVE record in production, a second studio release in the works, and a schedule of fantastic shows, Dirty Basement Blues is a true spectacle and live act not to be missed!
