Colby Ashton - They call me "Cheese", I was the first out of state member brought aboard the DGF crew. I competed my rookie year in the FBA at the Semi Pro Advanced Tour level in 2011. It was a great rookie year making drastic improvements adding more depth to my flair, and held my own very fortunately taking 1st place on the Advanced Tour. I'm always practicing, and always trying to come up with new moves and push to fine tune my flair. Looking forward to the 2012 season competing at the Pro level hopefully putting on a good show everywhere I venture to, along with pushing others to get better as well.

Quote "You look like I could use a Drink"

Being the only Barback on the Dirty Girl crew, MFH has a few competitions under his belt in the last year since he started flipping. They include the MI Slingers Pinnacle Throwdown, the Jack Daniels Bartending Olympics, and taking 3rd in both the Speed and Showmanship rounds of the Jamboozies Winter Classic. This up-and-comer plans to leave his mark on one of the oldest professions know to man with his sick style of flipping bottles and intensity behind the bar. Watch out for this SpaceNinja to take the flair world by storm with Dirty Girl Flair. MagicMagic NinjaWhat!

I grew up with mimes for parents so life growing up was very quiet for the young Flair Bartender to be. I grew up in a very circus style lifestyle, learning to juggle and ride a unicycle around the age of nine. When I was 16, I was gently introduced to the idea of Flair Bartending. After a couple years of practice I got my first bartending job the day I turned 18 and haven't looked back yet. I quickly learned that I could make more money throwing bottles and tins around than I could in the ring of a circus. I now currently flair bartend/rage at Manor the largest concert venue/bar in Athens, GA. I absolutey love my job, and love bringing fun and excitement behind the bar. The larger the crowd the better!.
