We Played in the Norhside Parade - July 31, 2007

I don't know why it is so hard to keep up with the website stuff. so much work went into playing in this parade that it probably skipped my immagination to write about it before it happened BUT I do belive we will perform in the parade again on JULY 4th of 2008. We had a BLAST as well as all who saw us. We were joined by the Beach Party Gang of Taylor Jameson' Hair Design and TOGETHER we won an AWARD for Excellence in the parade. I am finally posting photos of the AWARD.

We now OWN our trailer/ portable stage. Ralph has a generator that is very quiet and WE CAN PLAY ANYWHERE !!! literally (well we don't have a floating stage yet - reminds me of that one in the Simpson's)


We are intending on customizing the portable stage to be even more nifty in 2008.

11 new DEMOs added to the site - April 8, 2007

Well, you might think that because no new news has been added in the past few months, that nothing has been going on. Quite the contrary. We have been hard at work establishing our new sound as a trio and I am STOKED! The DFR unit has a bright future indeed. We have been hard at work this year recording demos of which 11 are being presented here in ouor MP3 section FREE BABY! Hope you like them. Let us know if you hear them if you think we are on the right track.

It HAS HAPPENED AGAIN ! - June 16, 2006

THE BASS PLAYER QUIT - We have SOLVED this problem already. DON SCHOTT will be the new bassman playing mostly a 5 string CARVIN KOA custom made fretless bass. "I am going to miss myself being the rhythm guitarist, at least for awhile. In the future I still intend on being a switch hitter on the recordings," said Don.

DFR TO PERFORM MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY BENEFIT - June 7, 2006

ON SATURDAY JUNE TENTH at two in the afternoon don't fear the reverb will give a benefit performance for Muscular Dystrophy in the parking lot of the Sports Center where MAKRO and the Ice rink used ot be. Ralph recently purchased a very nice AC generator for outdoor performances and this will be our first use of it. Sonny has a new "modular" drum riser and we now have new lighting effects - COME SEE

DON'T FEAR THE REVERB IS READY - May 9, 2006

Don't Fear the Reverb has a new bassman. Jimmy Rogers of blues keyboard fame. We are now accepting bookings and are just about finished with our DVD demo real which you can request through this website. While the bassman in the video is not Jimmy, all we can say is we sound better than that now anyway.
