Saying Goodbye

Hi:)

We are sorry to announce that The Dirty Grind Independent Artist Community, Radio Grind, The Dirty Blog and our satellite locations will permanently close after shows on the 21st of December of this year, 2022.

We have enjoyed hosting the project for over 11 years. Ian and I can no longer justify the great personal financial expense and time it takes to continue. We will miss you all and cherish your friendships.

Of course, I (Lisa) will continue to retain the copyrights and IP on the The Dirty Grind Independent Artist Community, Radio Grind and all associated branding.

We deeply appreciate our association over the years and will remember this time fondly.

Hugs and love,

Lisa and Ian

Wednesday December 7th Live at The Dirty Grind IAC!

Safe Wednesday everyone ♫ A great show awaits you at The Dirty Grind IAC t get over this Hump day with lots and lots of music 🙂

3p Lluis Indigo

Lluis Garcia is a self taught musician who has been experimenting with music since he was 7 years old and performing since he was 14. Many know him as creator and builder in SL, but in 2017 he turned his creative focus to his real passion: music. Being from Barcelona, he loves to sing flamenco style called “rumba”, but also creates relaxing and deep sounds.

4p Dee Timeless

Dee’s guitar playing is second to none with vocals to match, providing a quality listening experience with a strong sound. He performs a broad range of covers, including fingerstyle guitar and singing in other languages, and likes to take listeners on a trip back to the past, and back again, without a seat belt. Aside from that it’s about fun! Dee LOVES to play music for people, and it is a great joy to reach a person’s soul, spirit, and mind through music.

5p Gypsy Dhrua

Gypsy Dhrua (Dhruvà) is a talented musician: she plays multiple instruments (guitar, flute, percussion) and is a publisher of independently produced music CDs and videos. Her rich, husky voice will take you on a journey through heartfelt originals and soulful covers that will mesmerize and entertain you.

6p Effinjay

Jeremy Works (Frogg) was a vocal jazz minor at college, while Marc lePine (Jaycatt) studied piano for 14 years, but they only started playing music together after joining Second Life. Together , as singer/songwriters, they have produced a comprehensive range of heartfelt and memorable melodies and poetically lyrical songs. They have a loyal listener base, and entertain and delight the live music lovers of Second Life.

7p Nigel Freeman

Nigel is a guitarist and singer: he plays acoustic covers of popular songs ranging from the 60’s to the 2000’s. Nigel is a seasoned RL performer who traveled with a band for 5 years full time before settling down; since then he performs as an acoustic solo act, akin to his SL act. His style encompasses a range of artists from the Beatles or other classic rock on to REM, U2 and Pearl Jam and maybe even an occasional interpretation of something like Rihanna or Maroon 5.

4p Reno Jones

Reno Jones’ singing and guitar playing defies all expectations. “A voice like golf balls in a dryer.”, and “You call this music?”, are just a few of the things critics have said about Reno Jones’ musical stylings. Mixing it all up in a blender, Reno Jones covers songs from the 1920’s to the 2020’s; from Louis Armstrong to Foo Fighters to Tom Waits to Radiohead and even originals, Reno adds his unique spin to all genres.

5p Clairede Dirval

Clairede Dirval is a great performer, an exceptional musician: she has a big voice, she has a big laugh, she has a big heart. Her playlist is huge and offers something for everybody. Her gigs are always spectacular; she is one of the hottest, most dynamic, most wild and most soulful performers in SL. Her RL career as a road musician for over 25 years is a huge benefit for all her gigs. She is just good! Simple as that.

6p Senjata Witt

Steady as a heartbeat, that’s how her guitar style’s been described: rhythmic, percussive, and punctual, with a voice like rose petals steeped in bourbon. Folk, Blues, Traditional and original music, served up in her own special style!

7p Twostep Spiritweaver

From Blues to Bluegrass, Beatles to Bach, Grateful Dead to Van Morrison and all the music inbetween, Twostep Spiritweaver weaves his way through all of it. He may play 30 minutes of pure blues followed by 30 minutes of sweet ballads and love songs, or he might just start playing to see where the music takes him.

Sunday November 27th Live at The Dirty Grind IAC!

Safe Sunday everyone ♫ The Dirty Grind IAC is ready to give you a healthy dose of live shows, featuring three incredible musicians!
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fender/109/145/56

4p Mandala Bee

Mandala, a Rio de Janeiro Brazilian, loves to entertain her audience. She is a guitarist and singer and her vocal style is Bossa Nova: one of the best-known Brazilian music styles abroad, a lyrical fusion of samba and jazz. However, her musical style doesn’t stop there – it includes Blues, Rock, Pop and of course Romantic Songs. She is multi-lingual in her songs: Portuguese, Spanish, French and English. When you hear a tune or song you like, she loves you to sing together with her!

5p  Corwyn Allen

Corwyn Allen is a folk singer and guitarist who’s performed for more years than he cares to count. He brings to Second Life a varied and sometimes eclectic mix of American, Irish, Scottish, and English folk music, both traditional and modern. Corwyn will amaze and captivate you, sharing stories and songs that bind us all together.

6p Jamba LosAngeles

Jamba LosAngeles performs music that beautifully haunts your heart with a smile. He plays a twelve string acoustic guitar and harmonica. His music has been heard regularly in Second Life since the beginning of SL time. He covers songs that you have heard before, but in a unique way!
