Today, DYS founding members vocalist Dave Smalley and bass player Jonathan Anastas announced that they will be joined on stage in Boston by original lead guitar player Ross Luongo, as well as new rhythm guitar player Bobby Frankenheim and new drummer Jack Clark. Both additions bring a shared passion and history to the band, as well as their own impressive music legacies. Jack Clark plays in the current line-up of Jerry's Kids and has played with Boston punk legends Unnatural Axe as well as with original Dead Boy Cheetah Chrome's band. Bobby Frankenheim, who has been of friend of DYS almost since the band's inception, co-founded Boston bands Death Wish and The Loved Ones.
"It was really important that this reunion show be fun and powerful," said Anastas. "We didn't want to do a DYS show with only one original member, or use hired guns with no connection to the band's musical roots. Jack and Bobby have history with the core band, with punk, with rock, and with the sound we want to achieve." Added Dave Smalley, "A great band is hopefully about more than chops, which these guys have in spades. It's about shared experience, a shared sonic vision and it's -- above all - about chemistry. Who could you spend days with on a bus, in a studio, at practice, backstage? Jonathan, Ross and I are really glad to be playing together again for that reason. And Bobby and Jack are both guys we easily could have done it with the first time around."
At this time, the Gallery East Reunion show and performance filming for the documentary movie "XXX All Ages XXX" are the only activities DYS currently has planned. In closing, Dave added, "Gallery East, Duane and Drew Stone are stand-up veterans of a very special time. Helping their movie and their event were very important goals for us. Right now, that's 100% of our focus as a band."
