DALE & THE ZDUBS
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.
Formed in 2010 in Alexandria, VA on the outskirts of Washington D.C., FeelFree’s smooth sound incorporates hard hitting horn lines, tasteful guitar work, and memorable melodies. They independently released their third album “Define the Free” in July of 2018 after premiering their single “Lonely Life” with critically acclaimed Rootfire Cooperative. The album would go on to win Best Reggae Album of 2018 at Washington D.C.’s 31st annual Wammie Awards. FeelFree released their latest single “Sunday Slow” in February, 2021.
