"Dr. Dirty" John Valby



Hysterically bawdy and outrageous comedic singer/songwriter/keyboardist John Valby was born in 1945 in Rochester, New York. His father Richard was an accomplished violinist. Valby attended McQuaid Jesuit High School in Rochester; the Catholic nun instructors taught him how to play piano. John majored in philosophy at Middlebury College in Vermont and served in the army during the Vietnam War. It was during his college days that Valby first began writing raunchy compositions for his fraternity brothers. In 1975 while touring in the Buffalo, New York bar circuit John started singing and playing filthy songs instead of the customary ragtime classics and pop standards he had previously been doing. Valby's extensive repertoire of cheerfully lowbrow tunes includes lots of hilariously crude, lewd and flat-out rude stuff about sex and racial slurs as well as gut-busting nasty parodies of beloved Christmas carols and topical numbers on current people and historic events. Not surprisingly, his manager gave him the well-deserved name Dr. Dirty. He has recorded and produced over thirty albums. Valby appears as raucous bordello emcee Johnny Hotrocks in the amusing teen sex comedy romp "Losin' It." John not only composed the score for the short feature "Nancy Ray Smiggen's Family Tree and the Magic Extravaganza," but also has recorded pop albums and produced albums for other artists. In addition, Valby is an avid hockey player. He lives in western New York State with his wife Anne and five children. John Valby continues to tour and do his singularly sleazy, vulgar and uproarious thing at various clubs and college campuses all over the East Coast in America.
