Expect to hear some accordian and electric guitar added to the usual mix of fun, frolic, and fiasco!
David “D.B.” Brown was one of the founders of the antecedent to The Roundabout Ramblers, the legendary Raymond Avenue Ramblers. D.B. also initiated the present company, drawing on connections that he had made throughout Vassar College. He is our shaman, showman, and “sure” man (the most agreeable member of an extremely agreeable group).
D.B. is one of our featured vocalists, specializing in songs one might associate with the Golden Age of Radio. Indeed, one of his signature tunes is “Turn Your Radio On,” originally a shape note gospel number by Albert E. Brumley (who also wrote “I’ll Fly Away” and “I’ll Meet You in the Morning”). A master of the double-entendre, D.B. also brings tunes like “Wild About My Lovin’”, made famous by The Lovin’ Spoonful. Wait a second, is that band name a double-entendre, too? Hmm. Well, what band name isn’t?
With three guitars in the band, every one has to find a niche and D.B. is our finger-picking specialist. His favorite guitar is a Martin cutaway …
When he is not picking and grinning with The Roundabout Ramblers, D.B. is shepherding Vassar’s youngest and brightest through the hills and valleys of a Vassar College education (he is the Dean of Students).
