DB Blues – Rhythm & Blues


The DB Blues are a powerful force in the world of blues and soul music, who together create a magical and memorable night of music for any special occasion, whether it be a wedding, birthday party or private event.

DB Blues

I was spoon-fed blues, soul, funk, and rock music from an early age by my parents. My father, Laurie was a well respected guitarist who was in bands with ex David Bowie’s ‘Spiders from Mars’ Woody Woodmansey and Trevor Bolder & played national support tours with acts such as Hot Chocolate.

I’ve been musically involved (and good friends) with DB for sixteen years or so, from when they began gigging together in the Rob Donnelly Band. I have collaborated on other writing/performance projects since and I’m thrilled to be part of the band. Some of my studio and live recordings have had airplay on both BBC Radio 1 & BBC Radio 2 (including ‘Happiest man alive’ from Dan B’s EP, which I co-wrote & co-produced with other Dan B), and there have also been many of my productions used on TV & Film.

Having been a drummer all my life, I have a heap of experience and can be in high demand! As well as providing the rock solid foundation for the band’s music, I do also play in another band, who have already gained a substantial following, and have acquired international sponsorship.

Dan and the boys often invite special guests to join them at gigs. Previous guests include: Malford (vocals), Lucy (vocals), Emma (vocals), Colin (saxophone), Rob (guitar/vocals), Mark (guitar/vocals), Paul (guitar), Nick (guitar), Frank (bass), Paul (bass), Alasdair (bass).
