The Reserves

The Reserves are on their way to making things happen. Washington DC’s City Paper acclaimed the reserves debut, “Where Have All the Dreamers Gone” as a collection of heartbreakingly gorgeous tunes”.

Recently featured as On Tap Magazines artist of the month The Reserves were also selected from hundreds of applicants to be featured on the OnTap Magazines 2009 sampler CD entitled “On the Verge”.

Weeks after the release of “Where Have All the Dreamers Gone”, the band was the featured artist of the week on XMU's R/A/D/A/R Report as one of the top unsigned artists in the country, and was added to the station's regular rotation. The band has also been featured on college radio on the east coast including Baltimore’s own WTMD.

Featuring the honest and insightful vocals of Dave Greksouk, backed by the band’s subtle layering of guitars, piano, organ, bass, and drums, The Reserves have found a way to blend the pop hooks of bands like The Counting Crows, The Fray and One Republic, with the unique classic driving arrangements of acts like U2 and The Beatles.

In the summer of 2007, the band’s first release, “Where Have All the Dreamers Gone” caught the attention of noted producer Ted Comerford (Army of Me, Zox, Virginia Coalition) and also landed them a coveted slot at one of the hottest summer shows at Washington DC’s Nightclub 9:30. After showcasing, the band worked over most of 2008 with Comerford and mixer Micah Wilshire (Local H, Pat McGee Band, Ross Copperman) to finish the upcoming release "Life" for its Fall 2009 release. The Reserves have played to packed houses at; The 8x10 Club in Baltimore, Arlene’s Grocery and the Lions Den in NYC, Arlington VA’s Iota Club and Café, The 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. and large festivals and outdoor shows up and down the east coast.
