Dirt Cheap Winos

Bluegrass / Folk

One prairie girl and one Montreal guy started jamming together everyday after work. These are their stories. The Dirt Cheap Winos are best described as folk with tasty blues riffs and only the catchiest of jug band melodies.

With clever song structures, crisp vocal harmonies and a healthy dose of twang, the Jimmyriggers deliver a potent mix of sounds that appeals to rock and roots fans alike.

Built around the songwriting talents of bass player David Pearce, guitarist Andre Kirchhoff, and the colour of maverick guitar slinger Kevin Moquin, the Montreal-based alt-country band counterpoint their full electric sound and powerful rhythms with strong melodic song structures. It is their trademark harmonies, however, that truly lend the band its unique sound, with Pearce’s clenched fist-in-velvet glove vulnerability dovetailing with Kirchhoff’s more honey-dipped tones.

“The Jimmyriggers – easily one of Montreal’s best bands – slam out a high-energy set." - Montreal Gazette
