New Press release

Los Angeles, CA – Jam-master fusioneer Dana Gaynor and her Dana Gaynor Band have just released a sizzling album of jam rock, fusion, funk and prog sensibilities, all wrapped up in a focused delivery of spot-on percussion, sexy guitars and hooked-up rhythms.

"The Infamous Dr. D" is tightly packed with steaming, energetic tunes whose warmth comes right out of the speakers. This is music that will keep you warm in the winter, all by itself. The album's first single, "The Philly Stroke," shows The Dana Gaynor Band doing what it does best. The song opens the door to the Gaynor universe, telling the listener what to anticipate from "The Infamous Dr. D." Jazz, funk, blues, rock and more go into this mix of musical mastery; the audience can revel in the jamming flow and the progressive inclinations of this music, that brings on the brain without sacrificing mass appeal.

"The Philly Stroke" opens up some of the feelings Gaynor has for Philadelphia, a city in which she resided for a while. "There is a particular kind of hustle street merchants run on you there and this song is about that."

The single is typical of Gaynor's work on "The Infamous Dr. D" in that it is essentially a live performance, though studio recorded. "I think (the single) represents my live energy very well," she says. "It is the most uptempo song on the album."

"The Dana Gaynor Band is a project I have wanted to do for a long time," says Gaynor. She originally brought the membership together to support her new "Infamous" solo album. But the group "has really blossomed into a force in its own right." Gaynor speaks highly of the level of musicianship represented by the players in her band, "part of a larger family of hot musicians I tend to work with."

"The Infamous Dr. D" has already received digital release and will hit the streets in physical format on May 1. Previous albums include "Vampires from Mars" in 2002, "The Amazing Bluesmatics" in 2004,"Jazztronaut" in 2005 and "Notorious Groove" in 2006, all on Real Thing Records. Gaynor has been nominated for the Buddy Guy Blues Guitar Award and best all-around performer for the 2006 Lehigh Valley Music Awards.

She is currently Top artist for Indie Euphoric Rebel Records. More information is available by visiting www.myspace.com/danagaynor, www.danagaynor.com

Guitar aficionados need to pay close attention. Fans of the jam better open their ears. And if you just dig instrumental prowess in general, then keep reading and start listening. The Dana Gaynor Band pulls out the stops and turns out the hooks on "The Infamous Dr. D." This latest album manages to summon the feel of classic jam rock while still maintaining a very contemporary awareness. The grooves boast an addictiveness that this kind of music cannot live without. Gaynor ably moves up and down the frets of her guitar, her fingers nimbly plucking the strings; all the while her band demonstrates that its members have the talent to keep up. ...She's a stellar guitarist with remarkable songwriting abilities. Having proven herself on earlier albums like "Jazztronaut" and "Vampires from Mars"; "The Infamous Dr. D." is the next step forward for this forward-thinking musician and and songwriter.
