LET THERE BE ROCK Part 1 In the beginning...........After man had learned to how to amplify the guitar, turning it from a simple rhythm instrument, barely audible over louder brass and percussion instruments of the day, the guitar became a front line solo instrument. A new breed of guitarist emerged, pioneering techniques and inventing genres that would evolve over the decades. Their tools became more sophisticated. They demanded larger sounds that were designed by yet other pioneers. Rock as we know it has gone through many changes but some things remain a constant.. Driving solid rhythm, epic solo work, screaming soul full singing and a great riff to bind it altogether. No other band have ever captured this formula better the mighty AC/DC. The formula is simple, drums, bass, guitars and vocals. Anyone can do it. Not everyone can do it right. Replicating the sound of AC/DC with authentic credibility is what we pride ourselves in. Formed in 2015, dirtyjACkDC was the brainchild of two gifted and very talented musicians. Lead guitarist Leigh Chambers and vocalist Matty Keefe set out to assemble the best possible team available to capture that raw energy and tight delivery that would be necessary to put a credible band on the road delivering songs from the mightiest ROCK band of all time. In their search Leigh and Matty set a very high benchmark. Two things were absolutely essential for this task. Playing ability of the highest calibre and authentic hardware to match the task in hand. After months of intense rehearsal's honing their craft, the Mothership came to Earth in Oxfordshire, England on the 11th of July 2015 and dirtyjACkDC hit the ground running.The legend has continued to grow........Matty Keefe: Lead Vocals.
