Garage Bar: D & M / Ashley Atkins
Date: Saturday, August 4, 2012 Show Starts: 9:00 pm
D & M
D & M’s sound draws influences from current artists such as John Mayer, Mumford & Sons, and Coldplay. Danny Fornasa is the group’s lead vocalist, acoustic guitar player, and main songwriter. His expansive vocal range allows the group to write dynamic songs that keep the listener enticed track after track. Matt Klahre, the lead guitarist, returns the group’s modern pop stylings to their blues roots with melodic guitar lines and searing blues solos. Last but not least the solid groove set forth by the rhythm section of Sean Donaghy on drums and Matthew Jurasek on bass (yes, also D & M) gives the entire group rock-solid foundation for their dynamic songs. Though the average age of the band is only 21, they show no signs of stopping, with a Christmas single, documentary, live CD, and new EP all underway. If 2012 really is the end of the world, they certainly will be going out with a bang!
