“Groove-Driven Funk Rock”
The DAVE STEIN BUBHUB nightly weaves a sultry tapestry of colors and tones which implores fans to dance in a smoky melange of funk, rock, soul and jam. DSB is a new band of seasoned players, playing non-stop sets of groove-driven funk creating a passionate and playful party atmosphere encouraging their audience to move and dance while imparting a socially and environmentally conscious message.
Bandleader Dave Stein has been writing, recording and performing for 25 years. He’s been selling tracks online to fans globally since the release of his CD “Tomorrow Still Has Me”. Random acts of jamming at various Norcal parties and festivals introduced the players Ryan Vandenbroeck, Martin Fierro, Marty Ylitalo and Dave Stein to each other to perform and ultimately record Velvet Hammer. With its reputation for generating fresh, new and innovative sounds, San Francisco was the backdrop against which these musicians came together.
