Down at the Courthouse
Death by Injection (DBI) originated many years ago as a group of assistant district attorneys coming together to play the annual office Christmas Party. The band was so bad, they were threatened with musical execution, but got off easy, through a plea bargain, with the name DBI. Over the years, a few members have come and gone, but the core has remained playing numerous gigs across Harris County (Houston), Texas. DBI has played their garage band classic rock for almost every charity, law enforcement, lawyers organization, and judicial function in Texas as well as a number of public appearances and private parties. This CD was a way to combine their day jobs down at the Courthouse with the desire to create some original music. The many criminal cases and trials bring together a unique array of interesting people and stories. The songs were derived from the stories of the people who come to the Courthouse each day. Each track of the CD is as different as the many cases the players in the band handle everyday. The first song on the CD, 'Don't Say Nothing 'till the Lawyer Come,' was recorded 'live' at a charity benefit in May, 2002. The other tracks were recorded with minimal tracks, production and effects to capture the 'live' feel. Anyone who has spent anytime down at the courthouse can relate to the songs on the CD. Thanks for listening to our CD and please spread the word to all the lawyers, law enforcement officers, judges, jurors, witnesses, court staffs and anyone else who has been involved in the Criminal Justice System to check out the CD and have some fun!
