Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
8PM - 11:30PM
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a nostalgic trip back to the start of rock and roll, with a strict adherence to the 1950-1969 timeframe. A trip back to when songs were tossed back and forth by artists, and one night could find Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, and Jerry Lee Lewis all on the same stage. An experience of the birth of rock music, with over 50 songs from a time before music started its electronic shift. Their repertoire is ever-growing and assures you’ll be twisting all night long with their modern take that continues to be true to the original sound. Like the king himself said, “Rock and Roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can’t help but move to it”.

What a wild ride! Time flies when you’re rocking out, and before you know it, TWENTY YEARS are in your rear view mirror. Ironically, or perhaps fittingly, GIMIKK has now survived & thrived longer than some of the artists they cover in their always ambitious stage show- a remarkable feat considering the eclectic tastes of its five members: Lead guitarist Jimmi V was born on the opposite side of the globe and is a Dokken disciple. Denison native Cy Kick multi-tasks as band manager, accountant, and Jimmi V’s six string protégé. Bassist Billy Seven is a card-carrying member of the KISS Army and a Des Moines East Sider 4 life. James Brinker spent his childhood in a Calhoun County cornfield and believes he is the love child of Freddie Mercury and David Lee Roth. Josh Tilton has lived in Florida, Tennessee, yet somehow wound up in Grimes, and his skills are rooted in the style of Carter Beauford and Chad Smith.
