Dirk Swartz We are back at it after several years off!! We now are rocking lakes on our "pawntune" boat the "SS Revolution" and booking private events as well. We set sail a few summers ago, so THANK YOU for helping us keep the 70s & 80s alive and well! If you haven't had a chance yet, please visit the schedule page and come check us out... Dirk's solo gigs for his Land of Voices project are there as well.

Dirk has just released a remastered version of Soul Patrol's popular album from 1993, more info here!!

Here is our current songlist, always a work in progress...

Dirk & Kelly

"Big Hair Revolution" was born from the desire to get back to the great 70's and 80's music that has seen a huge resurgence as of late. Even the younger crowd is really discovering the great artists from back then; Zeppelin, Cream, the Cars, Journey, Foreigner, and so on. They do some newer stuff too 'cuz they love it, but stick mostly to faithfully reproducing the excellent music from the "Big Hair" era... "Big Hair Revolution" is NOT a Hair Metal or Glam Metal late 80s group. Big Hair started with the Beatles and we take it from there into the 70s & 80s with a touch of 90s and surprises along the way.

"Big Hair Revolution" consists of Keyboardist Kelly Porter and Guitarist/Vocalist Dirk Swartz, and between the two of them, they sound like any big band they want! Kelly plays the drums, bass, and anything else needed through his keyboards, allowing them to control the volume at any level at any musical event, no getting blown out or having to scream to hold a conversation (unless you want it LOUD!!), and Dirk is able to imitate vocalists from many genres and cover the guitar work, giving them versatility and wide appeal that most bands just don't have...

Here we'll just list some of the artists they cover...
