Why we do what we do

Our Story


Founded in 2007, DAB has been growing and performing all over Northern California and beyond. We really enjoy playing the Festival venues and all other types of fun lovin' gigs! We are currently working on our first official live album and will keep you posted on it's release.

What Inspires Us


Despite sharing many of the same interests and pastimes, we all are inspired by different artists, styles and genres that lead us to work seamlessly in a creative setting. We take turns introducing idea's, thoughts and actions to further our talent, sound and the propulsion of this greatly talented group of friends/musicians.

Our Influences


Our music blends blues, jam, funk, along with other amazing genres and influences that create the sound each individual brings to create the unity of sound we emanate.  If we had to pick our largest influence of our sound, it has to be the amazing soul pictured above; the one and only Warren Haynes. We cover several of his amazing songs and had the chance to chat with him and share our love of him and his musical prowess in Jamaica at Gov't Mules Island Exodus! So many other amazing influences include Van Morrison, JJ Grey, John Mellencamp, Dr. John, etc. etc. etc.
