In only five short years, Olympia funksters DBST have graduated from playing downtown dive bars to share stages with the likes of Joe Doria, Monophonics, Blue Lotus, and Eldridge Gravy and the Court Supreme. This sexy sextet mixes blues, rock and funk grooves to please the most discriminating of tastes.

Composer and frontman Sam Pohl leads drummer Alek Gayton, bassist-guitarists David Minar Himlie and Dave Van Zandt, percussionist Aaron Shively, and singer and horn player Danielle Westbrook. Their tagline is “electro soul so heavy it could grant sentience to an automaton,” and if that wakes up Skynet, so be it. The mother ship is landing.
