The engine room that drives the DCB is comprised of long-time friends, Paul Kuzik as low frequency provider and
Ned Stroh supplying the most empathetic drumming north of Brian Blade. Delivering the evening’s peaks is guitarist Dave O’Donnell
whose voltage runs via the great influencers George Harrison,

has the ability to bend, distort and deconstruct history beyond recognition. As a result, DCB paints a canvas of altered roots totally their own.

Collectively DCB’s members have appeared on the Billboard Charts, HBO’s Sopranos, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom to name just a few.
