About DPR (Danny Pease & The Regulators)
DPR formed in the spring of 2005 as a group of six friends playing music together in a basement to kill time. After a few months of playing it started to become clear they had outgrown their surroundings. In an effort to test their sound they started playing house parties and local clubs with a mix of originals and Sublime covers. It was during this time that their lively mix of Reggae, Groove Rock and Ska was born. A following developed quickly and hasn’t stopped growing.
In the spring of 2007 DPR added another singer, Phaze who had been the front man for Reggae/Hip-Hop group The Alchemystics. This added a whole new dynamic to the band, which is clear when listening to Dancehall and Calypso influenced songs such as Fire It Up and These Streets. DPR has won best Groove Rock in the Valley Advocate reader’s poll two years in a row. Every DPR show is based around making sure everybody in attendance has a positive experience. It is clear when seeing DPR play live that they have as much fun today as the first time they played.
