A fresh rock-reggae groove is flowing out of the nation’s capital, and their name is Dale and the ZDubs. A distinct reggae influence intertwined with a hard hitting rock style, DZD’s songs tell raw and oftentimes ridiculous stories. High-energy live shows feature multi-part vocal harmonies, along with thick guitar driven melodies. And sometimes Dale gets naked. DZD’s absolute obsession with performing live is the catalyst of their 150+ show dates a year all across the country.  The most recent studio album, Tuna, produced by Jim Ebert (Everclear) and Jason “Jocko” Randall (John Brown’s Body), is streaming everywhere.

Dale

Dale

Gorilla tape enthusiast, exhibitionist, surrealist, and distance crawling world record attempter, Dale is the only member of the band who does not engage in monogamy. The Department of Corrections approved his vasectomy in early 2020, right before his departure from Indian Creek Correctional Center.

Miles

Miles

Miles is really pale. Miles is really big. Miles goes to the gym. Miles hits the drums really hard. It’s better for everyone that Miles goes to the gym and then hits the drums really hard, as opposed to anything or anyone else.

Johan

Johan

Johan doesn’t talk much, but when he does it’s pretty cool. Johan is actually 6’4″. Although, he will tell you he is only 6’1″. This is a metaphor for how he lives his life: one quarter mile at a time. 

Shine

Shine

Shine and his girlfriend are professional hostlers. Oftentimes Shine and his girlfriend can be seen riding their horses together in slow motion. Sometimes you’ll catch Shine on the back of the horse, sitting behind said girlfriend as he clutches her waist shouting, “AHHHH SLOW DOWN!!!”

Julian

Julian

Multi-instrumentalist, mentalist, thaumaturgist, and curator of all things that will “take us to the next level.” People often ask Julian why he is bringing his talents to this group of “soon-to-be-over-the-hill-has-beens-clenching-on-to-their-unrealistic-dreams-of-reggae-rock-stardom?” He always replies: “I felt bad for the bastards.” 

Holly Dog

Holly Dog

Holly Dog is actually the most pivotal mammal in this entire operation. With the libido of 3 Peter Norths and a dry hump that’ll set the world (or maybe just your leg) on fire, Holly Dog keeps morale at its palpitating zenith. You’ll find Holly Dog at most band practices making sure we’re hittin’ the “1’s & 2’s” just right, and awaiting the next belly rub.
