Album Notes
In 1999 Scott Martin and Mike Adams started drunkdude69 with the goal of combining their interests in different musical styles (rock, reggae, ska, punk and funk) into a balanced and nutritious audio cocktail.

Musical collaborators from an early age, Martin and Adams had previously written and performed for years in and around northeast Ohio. drunkdude69 represents the evolution of their musical collaboration over two decades, across multiple cities and through numerous other bands.

DD69's first release "Funk Out With Your Junk Out" has been described as "a rip through a well-stocked jukebox, with smooth funk that would have been at home on a turntable three decades ago mixing with a contemporary guitar-heavy party vibe that could have been recorded two weeks ago." The music has drawn comparisons to classic artists like Stevie Wonder and Frank Zappa, as well as contemporary rockers like Sublime and 311.

The second release "Wigs & Liquor" contains ten songs that are a more cohesive example of the band's style. From the upbeat opening riff of "Keep It Up" through the classically funky "Now It's All Over", DD69 fills the album with heavy riffs and stylistic twists and turns. Witness their interpretation of the Billy Joel classic "Somewhere Along the Line" and you'll get an idea of the drunkdude69 style in action.

For the first album the band (K-Billy - guitars & vocals; Mike - bass & vocals; Charley Newcomer - drums; Scotty - guitar, keys, vocals) was fortunate to collaborate with amazing musicians in Nashville (Jim Evans - drum wizard), Los Angeles (Maurice Adams - guitar stroker), New York (Joe "Coach" Hanna - drum pummeler) and Cleveland (Jeff Nagel - guitar noodler, Mike Holloran - percussion smacker, Jay Goodman - special sauce vocals).

Many of those talented musicians returned for the band's sophomore effort, including Jim, Coach, Jeff Nagel, and Jay. The band also enjoyed writing collaboration with Jeff Beam, one of the hardest-working musicians in Cleveland.
