D.on Darox is a modern nomad, who busked his way from Tennessee to Southern California, writing and performing across the South while finding the key players of the Melody Joy Bakers. Playing original music combining roots Americana with Gypsy swing and a New Orleans vibe, The Melody Joy Bakers are equally at home busking on the street or playing honky tonk joints, seedy whiskey lounges, grand theaters and run down and abused grange halls across America. Their high energy show and impeccable attire have won the hearts of the youth and the aged and those lost and inebriated somewhere in between. Appealing to the knockout Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Avant Gaurde Jazzabily, and R&B fans they have been known to frequent, or at least appear once, on stages such as Harvelle's (Santa Monica), Harvelle's (Long Beach), the Ink 'n Iron Festival on the Queen Mary, New Noise Festival (Santa Barbara), Bombay's Ventura, "The Sewer", The Lobero Theater (Santa Barbara), Cinema Bar (Culver City), Old Town Pub (Pasadena), various disreputable locations on the Sunset Strip (Los Angeles), and on the corner of Main St and Palm between the hours of 10:30 and 3.
Their first album, "Agonizing, Sad Beauties" was self released in April 2012 and labeled "the perfect soundtrack for the new Depression" (VC Reporter). Their second full length album, "Tango", was self released August 2013. Recorded and mixed by Nick Luca at New Monkey Studio, Van Nuys, CA.
