Folk Rock band from Burlington, NC. Imagine popular rock, pop and indie songs being played with bluegrass instruments, but not necessarily with a bluegrass style… its different. PD and Marty grew up listening to Pearl Jam, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, U2 and Radiohead. Clayton brought his influences of Every Time I Die, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster and Weezer. As we began playing together something magical happened. Later Marty introduced the band to Jared who brought in his classical studies of Violin from UNCG. Over the past decade we have progressed in musical taste without loosing our roots gravitating to The Avett Brothers, Hall & Oates, Bon Iver, Coldplay and The Killers.
The Dickens formed with one goal in mind: to create the ULTIMATE PARTY BAND for a new generation of music fans. These veterans of the Southeastern music scene have joined forces to bring audiences the best party songs from the last two decades, along with the older classics everyone loves. For anyone who grew up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, this is your music! –
