Dash Rip Rock is the legendary New Orleans trio known for their high-octane roots rock. SPIN says Dash Rip Rock is "undeniably the South's greatest rock band." The New York Times calls Dash Rip Rock "skillful musicians with a penchant for getting reliably wild...." No Depression raves that DRR's recent albums prove that Dash is "one of the greatest bands working today." In 2012 Dash Rip Rock was honored to be inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.
Dash Rip Rock has long been celebrated for tight musicianship, high energy live shows, and songs of raw insolence and longing that are sometimes cut with whimsy. Bill Davis, Dash Rip Rock's founder and frontman, is a songwriter known for his blistering guitar work. For over 20 years Bill "Diamond" Davis has made his band Louisiana's edgiest cultural export and the band has amassed a loyal, diverse following.
"What lifts Dash Rip Rock's album a head above most Southern rock is Davis's ability to write songs that do more than sell beer on Saturday night."
"Their roots sound's supercharged with energy and an overdose of irreverence, delivered with crunchy bar band swagger."
"...no one can replace Bill Davis. He's the brains behind Dash's brawn, a barroom poet with a wicked sense of humor and a shameless knack for a good lick."
"Louisiana lightning bugs."
