They have shared the stage with Victor Wainwright (2016 BMA Entertainer of the Year), The Nighthawks, Junior Watson, Big Joe & The Dynaflows, The Andy T Band, Jimmy Thackery, and Phil Pemberton of Roomful of Blues.

The Danger Zone is a high-energy houserockin’ blues band from the Washington, DC area. The music is a unique mix of danceable rockin’ blues featuring original songs as well as the sounds of blues masters such as Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and The Nighthawks. Come see why people say they are the most dangerous band in town!
The Danger Zone’s debut CD, Take A Ride, was nominated by the Washington Area Music Association for Best Blues Recording in 2012. The ten song disc includes five original songs and is getting airplay across the nation.
The band has appeared on NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor” and they perform regularly at festivals and clubs in the DC area.
Over the years, the band has shared the stage with arists such as Tommy Lepson, Tom Principato, Memphis Gold, Skip Castro, Roomful of Blues, Popa Chubby, Anson Funderburgh, Mark Hummel and Charlie Baty.
Some members of the band have toured the nation and locally played large venues including The Birchmere, Nissan Pavilion, Wolf Trap and Patriot Center.
The Danger Zone delivers high-energy houserockin’ blues that gets a crowd rollin’. They promise every show to be a unique and fun experience. As Karl says, “this isn’t a hobby, it’s our passion”.
