The Dead Americans are a five-piece rock band from Eugene, Oregon formed in 2003. Inspired by the spirit of American revolt and freedom of speech, the DAs feature principal songwriters Zak Johnson and Kyra Kelly. Backed by a thundering rhythm section (John Raden, Josh Britton & Terry Travis) the DAs throw down the social commentary while kicking some serious rock n' roll ass.The DAs are the people's rock band--eclectic, seasoned musicians with a punk mentality. This band provides the apocalyptic soundtrack to smashing the state while shakin' that ass! Shows frequently involve performance-art antics and pure rock & roll adrenaline.
