Drawing equal influence from all of its 11 members, DTW is redefining the sound of horn bands. Moving away from the expected R&B/Soul covers, DTW blends elements of jazz, funk, reggae, and hip-hop to create fresh arrangements of iconic movie, tv, and video game themes, as well as inspired originals. With a sound reminiscent of Tower of Power, Lighthouse, and Chicago, the DTW trademark is to deliver complex arrangements on a foundation deep, danceable grooves. The band is rooted its’ Pacific Northwest heritage, but stands out against the sea of indie-rock and folk groups the region is known for. DTW has a big sound that is best suited for big stages and festivals.
