ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the third full-length release from this fantastic Cleveland band!!!
Waterband has been described as Folkedelicfunkpop, but ultimately when you order Waterband
you get served up a massive and unique blend of styles and influences
dating back to the early 60's through the new millennium.
Waterband was founded by David "Dreadlock Dave" McDougald, inspired by a higher calling and deep desire to send sincere positive vibrations into the universe through both expressive musical improvisation and thoughtful musical and lyrical composition. Waterband 's form is ever changing, yet ever flowing... Waterband's sonic depth and liquid-like forms allow them to perform
as a dynamic acoustic ensemble or as a Full-blown electric aural assault!
Waterband has performed over 550 shows throughout the Midwest and East coast,
since forming in 2001, all with the same positive response!
With two full-length CD's receiving consistent airplay thought the Continental United States and Europe, radio and television appearances, and opening for national acts, it seems there is nothing this band can't do.
Waterband also has the incredible ability to mix up some of the greatest cover songs ever created with
their own blend of Folkadelicfunkpop.
Waterband has continued to gain fans and positive feedback wherever they tour because of their incredible energetic live performances. Acoustic or electric Waterband continues to turn heads and get people dancing wherever they go. Their talents and musicianship are also starting to gain support through sponsorships. The goals for these guys are very simple, make people of all ages want to dance & be happy, spread positive vibes through the words and music, and keep rolling forward. Doing what they love and
loving what they do is what keeps this trio on the move.

A Few Facts...
*Support act for national acts on tour such as; Richie Havens, Keller Williams, Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band, Big Brother and the Holding CO., Dirty Dozen Brass Band,

This may not be the summer of love, but if you close your eyes...
Cynicism.
It's tough not to see it nearly everywhere you turn these days. Politicians are in it for the power. Athletes are only in it for the money. Musicians aren't really there for the cause, but to merely stroke their egos. It's as though we've come to believing that sincerity (or at least the appearance of it) is not to be trusted (And remember, this review might be tainted because I've received free CD's, right?).

Well, if you're suffering from that particular malady, get yourself a copy of Waterband. If 16 tunes full of rock, pop, reggae, funk and soul can't loosen your suspicion then maybe there's no hope (for you anyway).

Waterband gets off on the right foot (or should I say "body part"?) by appealing to your butt's natural tendency to shake. That's right, the "back of your front" will be wantin' to move with the funk by way of Sly & the Family Stone that is "Come On".

So Waterband is a funk group? Not so fast. The acoustic, heartfelt love song "Pictures of Me & U" follows. Somehow, I kept thinking it was going to turn into "Monkey Time" (the one with Fee Waybill). It doesn't. Thank you.

As your cynicism begins to melt away, you may find yourself thinking that Waterband is tough to pin down in the 'ole category department...and you would be right. Add in reggae, pop, blues, jazz and full-on rock to the list.

So. Where's the 'center'?

My ear parts say it's "Dreadlock Dave" McDougald's consistently funky bass. From the poppin' opening track to the reggae by way of "Oh Bla Di Oh Bla Da" of "More Than Anything", the basslines are just plain happening. Oh, this doesn't mean that I'm snubbing guitarist Tom Denk or drummer Dave Keen. Far from it. Everyone in this band brings a goodly handful of chops to the scene without wavin' them around, busting the poor little tunes upside the head.

Waterband reminds me of some of the jam bands of yore. The guys who built the foundations of the genre: the Dead, the Allmans, Little Feat. Groups where versatility was key. Right in the middle of all of this funkatude, Waterband tosses out "Wonderful". For a bit, my deja vu chamber kept sayin' "Hey, what was the name of that Mr. Big hit?"...but then the outro blows the thought away with guest vocalist Deb Lewin's snazzy "Great Gig In The Sky"-isms.

I guess what I'm most taken with is the musical and lyrical exuberance. It's just pure, no-filler, no-ulterior motive joy.

This liner note snippet says it all:

This recording is for you, the friends & family of Waterband. Inspired by Love, Peace, Happiness, Hope, Friends, Music Art, Taste Of The Herbs, Fruit Of The Vine and All The Goodness Life Has To Offer.
This may not be the summer of love, but if you close your eyes...

Cleveland Free Times - Anastasia Pantsios


With late-60’s hippie style clothing the rage again, it won’t be hard to find something apt to wear to a Waterband gig. Those embroidered blouses, tie-dyes, beaded bracelets and peasant skirts go perfectly with gauzy sentiments such as “People we got to live in this world together / Share all the love with your sisters and your brothers / Love, respect and peace for one another” in “Come On” which kicks off it latest album – sentiments echoed on such tracks as “Peace & Love”, “Natural”, and “In Bed All Day”. The Rootsy, laidback funk / folk / country / gospel / pop blend on its latest CD (inspired, among other things, by “the goodness life has to offer”) vividly evokes the brief shinning hippie moment when the kids talked about going back to the land to live communally. The Trio’s casual, almost skeletal arrangements sound like they’re jamming in the commune’s barn.
