Singer, songwriter and musician Jeff Workman — also known as “Rock Cub” — and his band Dirty Water Revival, will be giving fans and music lovers a taste of their special blend of rock and blues with a special Livestream concert on Tuesday, March 24.
The show will be streamed live from MVP Sports Bar & Grill in Cincinnati, Ohio from 5:00PM to 6:30PM. During the show, those local to the Cincinnati area will be encouraged to order food from the venue for delivery and pick-up only, as the staff will still be practicing the social distancing procedures that are in effect nationwide as a response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The show is being done strictly out of Jeff and Dirty Water Revival’s love of music and their desire to “take people’s minds off of the craziness for a little bit”. Fans and viewers are still welcome to donate tips to the band, as this is a time of uncertainty and unpredictability for everyone, especially artists, performers and other workers who are currently out of work and have had to cancel current gigs. Tips can be accepted via Venmo @Funktryboy.
In 2012, the name “Dirty Water Revival” struck home for Jeff, but at the time he was unsure of why. Jeff had been performing and touring as a solo acoustic artist in the Bear Community under the name “Rock Cub” for years, but it wasn’t until 2013 that he realized what the name “Dirty Water Revival” meant.
In 2013, after the passing of his then long-term partner and living a closeted life for many years, Jeff decided to officially come out.
“All my life I had hid a major part of who I was. I had spent so many years playing music and feeling at home on the stage, but off stage was a different story,” says Jeff.
It was then that he finally realized the meaning behind “Dirty Water Revival” and why it was stuck in his head for so long.
On June 8, 2013 in Charleston, West Virginia, things came to me while I was standing in the shower watching my life wash away down the drain — an old life, a life I no longer wanted to live, a life that I thought others wanted me to live. I watched 47 years of dirt, grime, and lies wash away from me like a baptism. The next day, I performed a solo show at West Virginia Pride. For the first time ever I was simply being me on stage — with a guitar and singing the songs I had written over the years.Jeff Workman
In 2014, Jeff released the solo album Dirty Water Revival, and in 2018, Jeff met up with bandmates Bill Landers and Jerry Wesley and the band Dirty Water Revival was born.
Rehearsals began in February 2018, and the first show was at State Street Pub in Indianapolis, Indiana on April 21. The band has since been performing live, and is currently in the studio recording their first full-length album to be released in Fall of 2020.
