DBU Press Kit


The DON'T BLAME US Band is a group of friends who enjoy playing Americana covers and originals. 

Mike Hamilton (guitar, vocals) fronts the band and is the primary song writer.  He's been grabbing words out of thin air and caterwalling for decades with no signs of slowing down. 

Melinda Hamilton (mandolin, vocals) has a knack for harmonies and enjoys walks on the Jersey shore. 

Dave Goodman (fiddle, vocals) Fiddelin' Dave can knock the socks off any good ole boy and girl with his fiddling.  Be sure to ask him about his string tie collection. 

Howard Parker (dobro, steal guitar) is a well known musician with the heart of an angel.

Rich Stabler (harmonica, vocals) is the quintessential harp-man.  Check out his ammo belt of harps--it's off the hook. 

John Thurston (bass) can build 'em and play 'em.  He's got the chops and carries the bottom end like no one else.

Stan Lapinisky (accordian) is "The Professor".  Nothing gets by him.
