On Sunday, June 8th, dbdb releases it’s third CD (and first in seven years!), Awakening. This latest work features a loosely unified theme and an unusual cast of characters: A paranoid executive digs a pit in his backyard. A religious fundamentalist realizes his friends are running away from him. A bruised and weary woman finds her voice and her freedom in the pouring rain. A mortified hothead tries to turn the clock back 24 hours.
Members of the band and the few fans in-the-know are calling Awakening dbdb’s best effort yet. The release is dbdb’s first to be available for download on iTunes and Amazon. In another first, the CD includes a link to a companion manifesto, complete with lyrics, photos, and background on the writing of each song.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS! West Bloomfield Congregational Church will be celebrating the release of their house band’s 3rd album “Awakening” on Sunday June 8th from 10 a.m. ’til 2 pm.
10am will begin with our Pentecost service
11am Chicken BBQ begins/ Bounce House for kids/ yard games, etc.

dbdb T-shirts will be $15, CDs will be $10. Or you can buy a CD/T-shirt-combo for $20.
dbdb believes all good music is spiritual, and take it upon themselves to crack open minds, expand outlooks, and rock whatever joint they ride into. Two CD releases include The Places I Have Been (2004, soldout) and Untraditional: What Would Jesus Dig? (2007) Their third album Awakening will be released Sunday June 8, 2014.
dbdb can be found rocking West Bloomfield UCC every third Sunday of the month, and playing occasional festivals and gatherings around New York state. They are guitar based, with a focus on tight harmonies and strong percussion. West Bloomfield Congregational Church is located at 9035 Rts 5 & 20.
