A musician and comedian, John Valby is noted for creating comedic parodies of classic songs with his old-fashioned piano. Valby regularly plays in college campuses and barrooms up and down the east coast.
He is best known for his act as Dr. Dirty that earned him mainstream popularity. Valby has also recorded and produced an array of pop and rock albums for himself as well as other artists.
After spending an evening with him, fans, audiences or viewers find themselves wanting more and more of him. You will always see John Valby performing in his classic white tails tuxedo and black derby hat.
John Valby was born in 1945 in Rochester, New York and is presently living outside Buffalo, New York. As a teen-ager, Valby attended Mcquaid Jesuit High School in Rochester where he learnt piano by the Catholic nuns. Mr Valby attributes his love of music to his father Richard who was an accomplished violinist of his time.
It was not until Valby got to Middlebury College in Vermont, when he stated the Dirt singing. While still at College and majoring in Philosophy, he created a few compositions for his fraternity brothers, many of which are still liked among masses.
After doing Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Middlebury College, John Valby realized that he could not take up music as his career for the demand was limited. He joined the Army. Valby was also an avid hockey player.
He still had a music streak so he thought to give it a shot. Valby turned to his new material and went with it. He found a trend that he started in 1975. He stated off performing at the Buffalo bar circuit where he did ragtime tunes and pop standards.
He did three Dirty songs one night where he became a mirror for the audience and the audience turned out to be even DIRTIER than him.
John Valby songs and shows focus primarily on sex and racial slurs, with a mix of current and historic events. Many of the songs sung by him are like Ya, Ya, Ya (aka limericks), Barnacle Bill, Roll Your Leg Over, etc.
However, Johns performance status is still Legendary at college campuses throughout the United States. The other unusual act Valby produced was that of Buffalo Sabres defenseman Jim Schoenfeld in 1971. He also appeared in a film called Losin' It in 1983.
But, what makes Valby unique and entertaining is his uncommon bond with the audience. He smiles with them, jokes with them, laughs with them, and makes everyone laugh at themselves.
People cant resist laughing at songs that have earned John Valby a label of comedian. Known for the ability to mix his musical Talent with a mad-cap variety of Dirty Ditties, John Valby has released an array of songs that are still all-time favorite for many of his fans.
Valby's repertoire is composed of popular songs, classical arrangements, limericks, and his own original creations. As for comedy, he has made a career out of poking fun at his audiences. He stretches the limits of free speech and accepts good taste and satirizes events from behind the piano.
John Valby has also recorded some clean material too. It includes a christmas CD; and the non-Dirty Lily White and burnout Blues.
At present, he is working on a number of other projects such as a multi-era Rock'n-roll cd by the Krakup quartet, a children's album and tours etc. John Valby is soon to be coming to your City. So, make sure that you have John Valby tickets way before his event.
