Dash Rip Rock is the legendary New Orleans-based trio known for their unique roots music. 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” and Houston Press recently deemed Dash Rip Rock one of the “Top 10 Louisiana Bands of All Time.” In 2012 Dash Rip Rock was honored to be inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.
