Dig the Particulars

Dig the Particulars


"...true performers, members of that special breed who are compelled to get on stage and give their all..." -Ian Chant in What's Up! Magazine "You guys are crazy...and I mean that in a really good way." -Soundman Joe from The Comet in Seattle


"Dig the Particulars has chops for days, switching time signatures and using jazzy phrasing with unique instrumentation....soul and virtuoso musicianship all come together with Dig the Particulars."
-Editor's Review on Download.com

Blending diverse influences into a constantly fermenting mash of energy slop-rock and precision jazz-grunge, this quartet incites audiences to pay attention and hold on. Spawned in early 2004, guitarist Ben Chandler and bassist Justin Helenius hooked up with a pair of Western Washington University jazz musicians, drummer Devin Anderson and keyboard/saxophone player Eli Jayson. The connection was immediate. Dig the Particulars has since relocated to Seattle where they recently celebrated the release of a new album titled Above the Ground. Selected by New York-based Farmhouse magazine for the 2006 Readers' Choice Award, Dig the Particulars continues to build an excited and dedicated community of fans. Dig it.

Set List

Dig the Particulars have been known to agonize over the construction of precisely orchestrated set lists...or not. Although the bulk of material is original, covers of James Brown, Tom Waits, Pixies, The Rolling Stones, etc. occasionally pepper the evening.
