DBST cultivates an unparalleled sound blending blues, rock, and funk grooves. With frontman Sam Pohl's high energy compositions and genuine lyrical style, DBST produces an energetically compelling sound. In its inception, Pohl, along with David Himlie, guitar, and original drummer Ben Darin, worked rigorously to build a foundation upon which this group could grow. Desiring a more complex sound, the sophisticated stylings of Dave Van Zandt on guitar and bass were added. The final additions of trumpeter and vocalist Danielle Westbrook and percussionists Aaron Shively and Alek Gayton has completed the transformation of this former trio into a well-rounded musical genus that is sure to please the most discerning of tastes.
Fans have seen the band go from playing classic dives in Olympia to sharing stages with many beloved west coast artists including Joe Doria, Skerik's Bandalabra, Monophonics, Polyrythmics, Eldridge Gravy and the Court Supreme, Blue Lotus, and Dirty Revival.
