About DOOBIE DECIBEL SYSTEM (DDS):
Jason Crosby and Roger McNamee originally formed a duo called "Doobie Decibel System” (DDS).  As the Dewey Decimal System organizes library materials by discipline or field of study, DDS throws its diverse musical talents together to create riffs and songs that cross genre and generation. The DDS Band will be performing an electric show at Moe's Alley on June 16th featuring All-Star musicians Pete Sears, Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz and Jay Lane.

On any given night, DDS play their original songs, such as  “Backlash” and “Wrong Side of The Road” by Crosby and “Live A Little” and “Couple of Puffs” by McNamee, and dip into rock ‘n’ roll archives playing a variety of classics from The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead. Their distinctive style is heard in every song while they continue to surprise the audience by playing improvisations and creating a unique sound that encapsulates their talents and energy.

Over the last decade, Jason Crosby has been a member of Robert Randolph and the Family Band and the Susan Tedeschi Band, among others. In recent years, Crosby has played with Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Carlos Santana, Pete Seeger, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Dave Matthews in various configurations. His discography includes appearing on Anastasia’s multi-platinum hit “Freak of Nature” as well as Tedeschi’s Grammy-nominated “Wait for Me”; and more recent releases from Phillip Phillips, Pretty Lights, Robert Randolph, and Teddy Thompson.

Roger McNamee is the lead vocalist and plays bass and guitar with Moonalice (performing 90-100 shows a year) and past bands are Guff, The Engineers, Random Axes & Flying Other Brothers.

ABOUT REID GENAUER

Reid Genauer is best known as a singer and songwriter. In that capacity he first hit the national stage fronting the band Strangefolk in the mid nineties. Since then he has gone on to cement his reputation as a prolific songsmith and band leader, fronting a second grassroots success story – The Assembly of Dust. Genauer’s success as a songwriter is qualitatively evidenced by the connectedness of his audience with his lyrics and quantitavily supported by two recent top 40 AAA hits: “Man With A Plan” from the Album Honest Hour and “Telling Sue” from Recollection.

The music Genauer makes with Assembly of Dust could be labeled “hick funk,” and has been compared to the likes of Paul Simon, CSNY, and The Band. It differs from Strangefolk in that the songs are more detailed and more composed “ The musicianship and as a result the songs themselves are more subtle” says Genauer. “Where Strangefolk was screaming and unleashed Assembly of Dust is conversational and practiced” The commonality of both groups is ultimately a backbone of Genauer’s trademark songs, characterized by thoughtful lyrics, hooky melodies and earnest vocals.

While Genauer is best know in context with other musicians he traces his musical roots to solo singer songwriters and has dabbled throughout the years in this arena. “ There is something very visceral and frankly safe about playing music with other people. I’m more comfortable in that setting” says Genauer “ but ultimately a song should be able to stand on its own and to some extent so should a singer songwriter”

It is to that end that Reid Genauer steps out this spring to test his songs and his mettle as a singer songwriter and to capture his fans with one lone voice in a room full of listening
