John Valby is a comedian and musician who has developed the nickname Dr. Dirty on the small stages of barrooms and college campuses along the East Coast.

The band was formed in Los Angeles, though, by a bunch of Americans. Despite their cultural origins, the members of Flogging Molly make some of the best Gaelic head banging music that's perfect for getting drunk and trying to dance to.
