Sun BBQ Fest welcomes Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, 9 piece funk / soul / rhythm & blues young band by way of Brooklyn, NY to headline Friday evening at 8:00pm.
Los Angeles Times says “...the fiery brass and gospel-infused funk emanating from Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds is rooted in Memphis soul. Their rhythmic wheelhouse combines big-city grit and down-home sweetness...”
Relix magazine calls them a "Band On The Verge" and featured them as "Summer Stars" in their most recent issue, 12th Annual Festival Guide.
They’ve only been touring a little over a year and have already played shows with The Black Keys, Dr. John, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Warren Haynes, & The Neville Brothers.
The band is currently on tour in support of their second album, "Pound Of Dirt" Stream some of the album: http://www.sistersparrow.com/music/
