The Drunken Squirrels / Bio

The Drunken Squirrels hail from Atlanta, Georgia and are sometimes billed as The ________Squirrels. Just fill in the blank depending on our mood and venue. We've been together for around 5 years now and are comprised of a bunch of guys with a life long love for music now finding ourselves smack in our middle of life. WTF happened? We are what you might call a 'Dad Band', which by the way is a growing form of rebellion here in the Southern U.S.  We've all been fortunate to have successful careers outside music but now it’s our turn to rock !
Our name comes from the time founding members Britt Dobbins proclaimed to Guitarist Dave Houston after hearing ourselves for the first time on a recording, “I sound like a Drunken Squirrel”. Ever since, this name has stuck. Then again when playing live we do say “the more we drink, the better we sound and the more you drink the better we’ll look”. The band today remains half music, half comedy and half fun. Locally around the Atlanta area, we are known to have lively shows mixing elements of Rock, Alternative, Dance, R&B and a little Blues, Country and Metal. From performing acoustic shows to unleashing an all out electric onslaught of 1000 Watt power, you never know what you are going to get night to night. We’ve always believed in including friends and guests to jam with us as well as local youth bands in order to give them a chance to begin their own musical journey. Always something to smile about. Come see a show. You’ll have a nutty time too.

We've almost completed our new album ! Looks like scheduled for a New Year '15 early release. We proudly recorded it in September, October and November of 2014 during a beautiful Fall season in Atlanta, Ga at Tree Sound Studios. We wrote and honestly have lived out these stories as we rode life’s ups and downs. The14 Original Songs were recorded, mixed & mastered under the supervision of Grammy nominated Producer and Chief Engineer Miguel Scott. We want to sincerely thank everyone at Tree Sound for making us feel at home and being so awesome to us. Much respect.
The Drunken Squirrels would like to give special thanks our families, friends and fans who’ve supported us. We are eternally grateful for the opportunity to be able to pursue our passion of music and experience this second chapter in life. Our band has played everything from local pumpkin patches, bah and weddings, basements to smokey bars and oh a many a mexican restaurant. We’ve played for free and at times owed more money for our bar bill than we’ve been paid at gigs. But we wouldn’t trade the past few years for anything. It’s been a blast and we’re looking forward to even more fun out on the road. So look out for The Squirrels, don’t run us over and we’ll be coming soon to a city near you.
