The blues, rock, and Americana band Dirty Cello is based in Marin, California but their globe-trotting touring schedule has kept them away from their hometown for far too long. They’ll be doing one of their rare Marin shows at Rancho Nicasio.
The Dirty Cello band has been described by Oakland Magazine as “Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical.”
In recent years, the Dirty Cello band has performed more in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East than they have in Marin County.
“We’re on the road a lot,” says Roudman, “and we’re always asking ourselves why we don’t play around home more often.” The band will be bringing their high energy mix of blues, rock and Americana to Rancho Nicasio on June 3. “We’re so excited to see our Marin area fans, and we’re also very excited to be able to head right home after the show.” says Roudman.
Even through the difficulties of covid, the band has navigated many exciting tours. They were the first mainland band back to Hawaii for shows at venues like the Blue Note jazz club and they were the first American band back to Iceland when the country opened up. In Iceland, the small village of Fjardarborg threw a cowboy festival in their honor, where the whole town came out dressed in what they thought “Americans” looked like. “They wore cowboy boots and camouflage clothes, and we had barbecue, beer in red cups, and even an opening band doing Dolly Parton songs in Icelandic.”
The band also kept performing safely throughout the pandemic with shows for the animals at the Oakland Zoo, widely socially distanced concerts at a buffalo ranch, and even outdoor shows at nudist resorts. At Rancho Nicasio, the band will be performing outdoors and barbecue will be available for purchase before the show.
