About the DRSB

Dirty Rotten Swing Band is a musical project spearheaded by Theresa Britt. Over the last several years, she has developed an interest in jazz and and swing fiddling styles. Britt has developed her own diverse set list that includes not only jazz standards, but also blues, Western swing, and some originals. The group’s core members include Greg Harkins, Matthew Mefford, and Theresa Britt. The group has performed throughout the Texas Hill Country as the Dirty Rotten Swing Band since 2018. Britt belts those old jazz standards and lays down jazz and swing fiddle. Harkins croons some old tunes and plays some far out jazz licks on his vintage arch top. Mefford rocks with some high energy upright bass! We often add drums when the occasion is right.  The group performs at clubs and frequently at private events.
