2017 Ivory Perry Park Free Summer Concert Series
Presented by Union Communion Ministries (UCM)

Dirty Muggs is one of the hottest St. Louis R&B bands! Their music selection is high energy, diverse and eclectic. Audience members jump to the dance floor and tap their toes. Their choreography calls to mind Jackson 5 and Earth Wind & Fire. Performing nationally and regionally, Dirty Muggs attracts and captures the hearts of NEW fans wherever they play.
