"Bare Bones EP" - June 2007
"Jam Responsibly" - August 2008



The Doug Forrester Band was formed in the spring of 2006 and was originally comprised of Doug Forrester, Justin Overfelt, Nick Overfelt. They made their first appearance in the summer of ‘06 at Wesley freedom church in Eldersburg, MD. It's often hard to place the DFB's exact genre. “Can‘t put a genre to it, and that’s good” states one pleased fan from the battle of the bands ‘07. The closest approximation we figure is a mix of soulful and groovy blues, rock, funk, and pop. It is a lot but that is the best way to describe the sound of the band. In the summer of 2007 they released their first CD entitled “Bare Bones EP” which features 6 original songs and one live jam. After a year in support of that CD, the band just finished their first full-length album "Jam Responsibly," released it at Fletcher's Bar in Baltimore, MD on August 15, 2008. The band had been steadily debuting songs from that album in live shows up until its release. The live sound of Doug Forrester Band is slightly different from the studio recordings. They tend to “jam” out their original songs. “You guys have great stage presence for how young you are” says Nick Reider, trumpet player for The Players Band. “One of the biggest concepts I want the band to stick to as far as live performances go, is to never play a song the same exact way twice, and never have two shows that are exactly like each other, kind of in the same realm of live performance as Dave Matthews Band” says Doug. Most of the bands recent live sets have contained a healthy portion of covers with everything from Eric Clapton to Marvin Gaye, along with plenty of their own original songs – “jammed out” of course.
