Dirty Word

“Got to spend a little time with my friend Gary Bitzer. He’s been dealing with some health issues , but recently got some optimistic news. It’s really tough and stressful dealing with weeks and weeks of going back and forth to doctors, hospitals , and clinic appointments. This man is as tough as nails, and I know he will pull through it and be good to go. 
Gary is a very important figure in the entertainment business, and even more important as a friend. Love this man.”

– John Scalia


Dirty Word is a talented group of accomplished performers that have been giving jaw dropping performances since 1998.  Front man John Scalia and drummer Dale Hieb have been the foundation of the group since its inception and have formed a chemistry on stage of musicianship and showmanship that has become unrivaled in the country. Recently they have expanded their territory taking the Dirty Word experience nationally to Texas, Colorado, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, Kansas as well as a number of stops in Scalia’s home state of Louisiana.  Entertaining the troops overseas has also become a regular event making stops in Qatar, Kuwait, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.  The band has become the “must have act” at clubs, fairs and festivals across the Midwest and is a bringing the first new original single “How Long” from their up and coming album with them.  “How Long” is available now on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and other popular online retailers.  Check out the full tour schedule and catch the next Dirty Word show near you!

We are excited and honored to travel back to the Middle East at the end of December to entertain the troops that are fighting over seas.
