This four-piece offers audiences guitar driven rock layered under sincere (and often amusing) lyrics... their unique chord voicing and complex rhythmic elements make the The Dustin Ritter Band worth hearing" (Alex Macpherson, VERB). The original line up formed in the summer of 2009 and quickly wrote their debut full length album Dead Airwaves which was recorded in the fall of that year. John Bidochka from CBC Radio One has described the DRB's debut as "Upbeat and whimsical songs with a catchy, yet cool delivery. The Dustin Ritter Band is certainly a band to watch for in the coming years. Keep some room on your iPod, you will need it as these guys continue to deliver”.
