Soraia
Soraia
Soraia epitomizes raw power, unrelenting energy, chaos, and freedom. ZouZou Mansour and Travis Smith are the core of this group -- their songwriting rooted in early garage rock with strong dynamics and melody -- and their live show: frenetic and intensely interactive. ZouZou has been referred to as "a true mix of Iggy Pop and Joan Jett" onstage.They have toured throughout the US, playing the dingiest corner dive bar, to the most massive amphitheaters. Their career includes venue highlights playing their hometown stadium, Wells Fargo Center as supporting act, as well as opening for national bands at The Rave in Milwaukee.
Kris Rodgers
Kris Rodgers
Known as "rock n' roll's secret weapon", Kris 'Fingers' Rodgers has been a recording & touring sideman in top touring garage rock and power pop acts like The Connection, Scott Sorry, The New Trocaderos, Bullet Proof Lovers, and Kurt Baker Band for years. Kris Rodgers started The Dirty Gems in 2011 as a throwback piano rock n' roll trio. The trio quickly formed into a full rock outfit in 2014, resulting in their first single, "Headlines" being featured by Little Steven Van Zandt as "Coolest Song in the World" on Steven's Sirius/XM radio station "The Underground Garage".

2017 is the year that Kris Rodgers takes center stage on his solo, full length debut, “Losing the Frequency”. Joining the Dirty Gems and returning the favor on this release, is crowned prince of Power Pop, Kurt Baker, taking over bass duties. Stand out, sing-a-long tracks, reminiscent of Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and Billy Joel’s “Glass Houses” include, “Revolution”, “I Know”, and “Rock ’n Roll Radio”. Hitting you smack dab in the face, like Todd Rudgren’s revved up motorcycle on Meat Loaf’s opening moments of “Bat Out Of Hell” is the album’s opening track, “Let Go”. Kris Rodgers has delivered an album of 70’s inspired arena rock gems, bashing piano keys with a raspy-throated growl that transcends to FM Radio Album Oriented Rock’s heyday.
