Don Forbes and Reckless is a Marin County rock and roll band. They have been labeled "Americana", "Alt country", "rock" and recently "red dirt"...a genre usually only found in Texas, Arkansas, Okla but growing in popularity in California. Call it what you like. It's great stuff!!
Led by award-winning singer/songwriter Don Forbes, the band plays a majority of original material with the balance made up of songs by the well known artists listed as "sounds like". Forbes put out his first CD, "Somethin' About Guitars" in 2006 and is now working on a second CD. The band had been on a two year hiatus until the summer of 2013, when Marin County native and lead guitarist Ric Wilson joined the group. Ric had done session work on "Guitars", and has proven to be a very good fit! "Its just great chemistry, and it shows!" said Forbes.
With Don on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Jeff Kindt on drums, long time bassist Les Lizama, and Ric, "Don Forbes and Reckless" deliver some really engaging original music! Excellent songwriting with great melodies and catchy hooks, smoking' guitar licks, and backed by a solid rhythm section make this a fun band to check out!
