Waterband is a positive "folkedelicfunkpop" power quartet drawing influence from classic rock & roll from the late 60's & beyond...


Inspired by a higher calling and deep desire to send sincere positive vibrations into the universe through music, David "Dreadlock Dave" McDougald and John Welton founded Waterband. Their goals are being achieved through expressive improvisation and thoughtful lyrical composition. Taylor Netzler, Dom Williams & Ryan Matiska add power & depth to the flow. These five unique personalities present Waterband!

Waterband's form is ever changing, yet ever flowing. Waterband's sonic depth and dynamic range allows them to perform as an acoustic ensemble or as an electric, face-melting aural assault! Waterband has performed over 1500 shows since forming in 2001. They have released 5 CDs and 2 DVDs to critical acclaim.

Take notice of Waterband as they serve a wide variety of music fans. Waterband provides quality music that is both fun and inspiring. When you experience a Waterband show, you feel like you are a part of a family. This family sincerely cares about each other and is always willing to welcome new members with open arms.

Waterband has been described as Folkedelicfunkpop, but ultimately when you order Waterband, you get served up a massive and unique blend of styles & influences spanning all musical genres. Waterband also has the incredible ability to mix up some of the greatest cover songs ever created with their own blend of Folkadelicfunkpop.

Waterband is gearing up for a bright future. Their five full-length CD's are receiving consistent airplay throughout the Continental United States and Europe. Waterband has opened for multiple national acts and they have appeared on numerous radio & television spotlights.

Waterband has continued to gain fans and positive feedback wherever they tour because of their incredible energetic live performances. Acoustic or electric, (comma here) Waterband continues to turn heads and get people dancing wherever they go. Their talents and musicianship are also starting to gain support through sponsorships. The goals for these guys are very simple: inspire people of all ages to dance & be happy, spread positive vibes through their words & music and keep moving forward. Doing what they love and loving what they do is what keeps this prolific band on the move.

Waterband Highlights...

Waterband has become very interested in helping getting the word out about the world water crisis.

Waterband has teamed up with MadMatts Promotions to help raise awareness for World Water Day 2008. On this day we will raise awareness about the daily struggle of women and children across the world who journey three to six miles to retrieve water for their families. World Water Day is an international day of observance and action to draw attention to the plight of the more than 1 billion people world wide that lack access to clean, safe drinking water. We invite you to join us in our efforts to help bring clean water to children in need, and to be a part of what may be the largest mobilization in the history of World Water Day.
