It's not that nothing's going on, just that we're lazy with the "news" page. Mike moved to Hawaii, so we're seeking a new drummer. Dan went to Nashville and recorded "Maybe I'll Fly" with John Mark Painter for a feature length film to be released sometime this year. Dan is currently writing and recording a new album to be released under the DB3 moniker. You will likey.

That release show was a blast. Thanks to all who came out for the show, especially Clyde, Earwig and International Orange. We can't wait to do it again. Pics from the show are up here.

June 9, 2004
Wooooooo-hoooooooo! ...Straight On Till Morning is shipping even as this is being written. We will have the album in hand tomorrow morning, and you will have the album in hand Friday night.

May 22, 2004
...Straight On Till Morning is officially out of our hands. The artwork and master have been sent off to New Jersey, and now we must patiently await the arrival of our new baby.

May 17, 2004
The album is in the can. We master on Wednesday. Click on the little orange DB3 "pill" in the upper right hand corner to hear some MP3's from the album.

May 15, 2004
8 songs down, two to go, then mastering and we're there. An unmastered copy of "Last Call" has been posted for your listening pleasure.

May 10, 2004
The release show posters are printed and ready to go up. Wanna help hang 'em around town? us.

May 8, 2004
"Roller Coaster" is in the can.

May 6, 2004
International Orange (former Ben Folds band mates) are confirmed for the CD release on June 11. That rounds out the bill to: Clyde, Earwig, International Orange, and DB3. Kick ass show on the way, kids.

April 15, 2004
More vocals to track tonight...

We put up a bunch of pictures today; check out the DB3 Photomaton and take a look at what we're doing in the studio and on the stage.

April 14, 2004
You kids are gonna love this album. Jason White is a genius (DB3's not too shabby either). Yesterday, we had Jon Beard lay down a bass groove on "I'm Yer Man" for old time's sake. Can I just say that I'm so happy to have him in the DB3 family? I guess I just did.

April 12, 2004
We have confirmed booking at Skully's for the DB3 CD release event on June 11, 2004. Clear your calendar and make sure you are there before 9pm for one of the best shows you have ever seen.

April 9, 2004
Clyde (former Sugar Pill and Sister Flow members) has been confirmed for the DB3 release party on June 11. Prepare to get out your funky hats and get your groove on.

April 4, 2004
Earwig has been confirmed for the DB3 release party on June 11. We are very excited about this. If you haven't heard Earwig, first of all, pull your head out of your ass. Second, check out their website and go see one of their shows (don't just wait for our CD release).

March 1, 2004
Time has been slated at Diamond Mine for the end of March. Time to start picking songs and making lists.

February 20, 2004
We've added a message board to the site, so you can let everybody know what you're thinking about DB3.

February 12, 2004
We've been invited to play on a ticket with Trapper John and Asher at Skully's on March 5th. Keep it coming, Columbus.

February 12, 2004
We just got added to the bill for Saturday, February 21st at Skully's Music Diner, the pretty little venue just across from Little Brother's between campus and Short North. We're playing with a band from Chicago called Bottle of Justus. Never heard of 'em, but evidentally they toured with O.A.R., so maybe they will bring out the OSU crowd. See you there.

January 20, 2004
NYC band Suffrajett has been added to the High Five show on Saturday, February 7th. This move was facilitated by Chip Midnight of local music web column Atomic Ned, who contacted us with a request from Wes Kidd (formerly of Triple Fast Action) who is now Suffrajett's manager. This means you now get three bands (Suffrajett, Front Row for the Meltdown, and DB3) for the price of one. And now that you know the entire history of that... come see the show.

January 16, 2004
Check it out, baby. The new demo sampler is almost done. Dan still has some tweaking to do, but here's the cover art:

Three from DB3

Hopefully this CD will represent our new sound a little more authentically and get us some more gigs and attention. Thanks again to Jon Beard for engineering.

January 9, 2004
Jason White of Diamond Mine Productions has been locked in to engineer and produce for the next album. Details forthcoming.

December 11, 2003
Dan was up late last night, so we've got some rough mixes of the Ghetto Recordings from December 6. You can find "Crazy Eddie," "Crossing Over" and "Flyboy" on the music page.

December 8, 2003
If you're looking at this, then you know that the new site is up.

December 6, 2003
We've completed a 70's style recording of a few of our songs. That is to say, we set up some mics in the living room and recorded live. Plans for the recordings are still not solidified. The main thing is to get the sound out to some more venues. We'll keep you posted. Many many thanks to Jon Beard for engineering; this guy is one super-hero cowboy.

September 13, 2003
DB3 takes the People's Choice Award for Columbus' Aids Rock Ohio 2003! Thanks to all the fans old and new who showed their support and made us the people's choice out of the 26 Aids Rock Ohio finalists.

July 2, 2003
We just receieved notice that we have been selected as one of the finalists for Aids Rock Ohio. We will be competing on Saturday, August 16th at Promo West Pavillion, 8pm. Cover is $10 and helps local AIDS charities.

"The winner of the competitions will be selected at the Tall Trees Music Festival at The Factory on Saturday, September 13th, will win a recording contract and a chance to open at the Schottenstein Arena on Sunday, Sept 14th for a major national act (tba)." --from the Aids Rock Ohio site

Last night our CD was placed into the hands of people from Ben Folds (thanks, Erika!), Boston, Tori Amos and Three Doors Down (thanks, Dan Weingartner!).

We are currently negotiating the possibility of going back into the studio to record a song for an indie label compilation to be released in October. We will announce the information here as soon as things are solidified.

June 29, 2003
Last night at Miani's was great. It started out slow, but by the end of the night we were looking at about 250 people, and they were all new faces, so hopefully we made some new fans (actually, I know we made at least two major fans with "I'm Alive;" that guy and his girl were going wild --excellent).

We were entered into a contest at Miani's that is based on the number of people you can pack into the place on a Sunday night (bands compete on the Sundays of a given month: whoever brings in the most people on their night wins the take at the door for the whole month). So when our night rolls around, we need EVERYBODY there. Who knows, maybe we could make enough to get back into the studio...

June 24, 2003
Jonas broke his hand. Dumbass slammed it in a car door (no Johnny Tightlips and Vinnie the Tree were not involved). So we are looking for a new base player (Jonas is looking to concentrate on his studio efforts anyway, and we need someone who can rock a little harder than he).
