Daniel Lanois Black Dub Tickets
Daniel Lanois' Black Dub is more than a dub band. This unique alternative band combines dub, blues, soul, Gothic Americana, New Orleans funk, reggae, and rock for an unforgettably eclectic sound.
Daniel Lanois' tours all over the world. The Black Dub band has shows planned in Stockholm (Sweden), Copenhagen and Odense (Denmark), Berlin (Germany), the Netherlands, Frankfurt (Germany), London (England), Dublin (Ireland), Paris (France), Zurich (Switzerland), Milan (Italy), Barcelona (Spain), as well as locations in the United States and Canada.
Black Dub prides itself on producing music the old-fashioned way, recorded live in one take with no dubs or cuts. This is real, raw music. All of their videos have been shot in black and white using a single hand-held camera. The band's name has a double meaning. Dub stands for both the Jamaican dub style and for the fact that the band refuses to dub for their tracks, preferring a live sound. Surprisingly, one of their tracks, Ring the Alarm, is more of a hardcore rock song - it's become an unexpected club favourite.
Black Dub is a band put together by musician, producer, guitarist, singer, and composer, Daniel Lanois. His popular album, Flesh and Machine, was released in the fall of 2014. Trixie Whitley (vocals), Brian Blade (drums), and Daryl Johnson (bass) comprise the rest of the band. Brian Blade is the band's drummer, and was influenced by his upbringing in Louisiana, playing in the Baptist church band. Blade has studied with such masters as Ellis Marsalis, Bill Huntington, George French, Steve Masakowski and John Mahoney out of New Orleans. He has a knack for improv. Blade has also recorded with the Brian Blade Fellowship and Perceptual, and has released a solo album, Mama Rosa. Trixie Whitley is the talented and soulful singer, known for her strong and soaring vocals. Whitley grew up in a music family in Texas and New Orleans. Her father was blues singer Chris Whitley. She is the lead singer on all the love ballads for the band.
Daniel Lanois' Black Dub took off with an east coast US tour following the release of their self-titled album in 2010. I Believe in You, Silverado, and Nomad are the band's biggest hits.
Their debut album, Black Dub, features 11 tracks. Stylistically, the songs are very diverse, but mostly based in Jamaican dub culture mixed with soul. The album was nominated for a Juno Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year. Brady Blade makes a guest appearance on the song Last Time.
With tickets to a Daniel Lanois show, you can sit back and listen to music that evokes mystery and the deepest feelings of the soul: love, joy, and hope along with loss, fear and darkness. Enjoy visions on the screen courtesy of The Modern School of Film. Atom Egoyan, Mary Harron, Kevin Drew, Jim McKay, Ondi Timoner, and Adam CK Vollick are all filmmakers who have contributed film shorts to accompany Lanois' music for the live show."
