JOHNNY SKETCH & THE DIRTY NOTES
Rolling Stone mention
Posted on Feb 25, 2013

“Johnny Sketch and The Dirty Notes are one of New Orleans best kept secrets – maybe. …..Pain, Pleasure, Fear and Opera (Noiselab) is their third album. But the bands Jazz Fest set was a revelation to me: jamband bonhomie and Louisiana stroll spiced with klezmer style violin and funeral-parade horns… Pain is more of that punch: what you you’d get if Phish had been born at Tipitina’s and studied under George Clinton and Frank Zappa late night on the levee.”
— David Fricke, Rolling Stone

After they debuted in San Francisco 9 years ago at the Boom Boom Room, JSDN is returning to the BBR on Friday Night for a throwdown of their all original...Funk-Rock, mania Horn-Driven, genre-blending, mind-bending truly sensational New Orleans experience!

DON"T MISS THIS ONE FOLKS!

Since it's inception in 2001, Johnny Sketch & The Dirty Notes (JSDN) has gained a loyal following in a competitive New Orleans music scene.
Their unique FUNK/ROCK style blends guitar, violin and harmonica with a hard driving rhythm section reminiscent of the Radiators' swamp funk added to the punchy horns of Tower Of Power.
It did not take long for these young musicians to land slots in most of New Orleans' prominent live music clubs. On the strength of those performances, JSDN was added to the roster of many notable festivals and special events.
JSDN's debut album, Bandicoot was voted by Offbeat Magazine as 2003 Best Rock Album by a Louisiana Artist. This award was a flattering follow up to winning the 2002 Best of the Beat Award for Best Emerging Roots Rock Band. JSDN was also voted Best Rock Band in 2003 for The Big Easy Entertainment Awards.
In essence, JSDN is a classically trained tight unit. All of the members studied music in college, but a night with JSDN is very different than a night at the symphony. They combine the manic energy of 1980s Fishbone with Deep South soul. It is this energy that fuels the crowd into an enthusiastic frenzy, and the band has been known to jump into that frenzy head first (sometimes literally).

"the Dirty Notes are a tight unit, bursting with enthusiasm, well versed in local funk but willing and able to put a slightly different slant on it. (Their new album is) a promising debut."
James Bailey -- Writer
Offbeat Magazine

"...their record is excellent. Its greatest strength is the impeccable arrangements of both instruments and vocals evidenced by the nimble, inventive interplay of the rhythm and lead instruments. The album is quite simply, rock solid."
THE TWISTED MAJESTY OF MOVING ASSES
Offbeat Magazine Sept. 2004

Funky Rock band from New Orleans. Classically trained and schooled in making the house ROCK! From a calm, funky groove to a full blown frenzy at the drop of a hat. JSDN rocks the house, every time, all the time.
