Colby Dobbs Band

Colby Dobbs Band

Colby Dobbs Band (CDB) is quickly generating buzz with its original mix of piano-driven, jazz/rock-influenced pop songs, complete with punchy vocals and foot-stompin' catchy hooks. Formed in 2010 by singer/keyboardist Colby Dobbs after an attempt to record a solo album with studio musicians, Dobbs found chemistry and musicianship in Dan Lawlor (drums) and David J. Sentendrey (bass) – with each adding their own sound to the collective. Marcus Harmon and Charlie Trexler would later be added on saxophone and guitar, respectively, to round out the group's identity. Between CDB's members, there is a wide array of musical influences, ranging from classic artists like Steely Dan and Stevie Wonder to more current pop acts like Jamiroquai. CDB's central focus is and always has been on good songwriting and precise musicianship, which has led to the band developing a sound that is truly unique for their time and place. “We think the songs are certainly the most important thing. I think at the end of the day, most people love good songs and truly appreciate them,” Dobbs says. Considered one of the best bands in North Carolina by the influential music reviewers Live Limelight, CDB released their full-length debut album, “The Great Unknown," in June 2012, which is now available for purchase/download worldwide. The group's live performances have not only gained them notoriety in their hometown of Charlotte but throughout music rooms they have worked across the southeast region of the United States.
