All ages and Never a Cover

The Dry County Crooks are an outlaw country/rock outfit from Portland, Oregon with punk roots and a blue-collar message that has become their trademark. Touring the western states since 2001, they’ve played over 300 shows including multiple appearances at MusicfestNW and opening for bands ranging from Eddie Spaghetti to The Tennessee Three. Vocalist/accoustic guitarist Vinny D’s anthems are the ignition system in the hopped up pickup that is DCC. Influences Johnny Cash, Social Distortion, and The Pogues are hot wired into tales of rural American characters, greased up broken hearts, alcoholic binges and knife weilding street fighters. Paul Becker’s electric guitar crunch sparks the 8-cylinder rhythm section of drummer Cheo Larcombe and Bassist Johnny B.

In 2003 The Dry County Crooks self-released “The One That Got Away” on Blue Collar Heart Music and followed in 2005 with “Wrong Side Of The Tracks”. Their new album, “When Hearts Break” is now out on the MastanMusic label.

“The Crooks’ new “When Hearts Break”- a collection of unaffected Americana-core anthems and rockabilly ballads – lurches decidedly punkward.” Jay Horton, Williamette Week.
