1. Spirit of 76 Dime Store Hustlers 2:41

Dime Store Hustlers are a traditional Rock band formed and based in Indianapolis, IN, in 2013. The band’s been through a number of lineup changes over the years, but everyone who’s been involved are friends on the music scene in Indy.

Influenced by Hard & Southern Rock, including bands such as MC5, AC/DC, Skynyrd, Sabbath and Zeppelin, these guys realised that there really aren’t many straight up Rock acts any more, everyone is a sub genre of something or other so they wanted to take it back to the old school and play no frills, meat & potatoes Rock & Roll!

Henry French, owner of Solomon Mics described them best when he said “Dime Store Hustlers have a simple mission: loud, ballsy, Rock and Roll. AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Supersuckers, and the Smithereens all wrapped up in one, they are guaranteed to leave your fist pumping and your ears ringing.”

New release ‘Ground & Pound’ was recorded at Electric Funkeland Studios AKA the unfinished basement of Andrew Funke’s house and he was the engineer and
producer of the whole EP.

This is American Rock at its finest, get involved.
