Dexter's Sandbox emerges from Washington DC's music scene blending unique danceable beats with creative jamming for a radio-friendly sound. The 'groove-pop' vibe of Dexter's is equally invigorating in live settings and on their freshman release, 'True Love'. The five member band is fronted by talented vocalist Helen Whiteley. Sporting a British accent, Whiteley's stage presence is unforgettable. Song writing comes largely from the creative palette of guitarist/keyboardist, Bernie Stoltz. Arrangements evolve in sessions with 'riff-heavy' (MTV Online) playing from guitarist Evan Field and lock-step rhythm of bassist Jesse Chappell and drummer Rich Hayden. The group traces it's genesis to 1995 when Stoltz, Hayden and Field played in the Georgetown band, Just Bucky. Whiteley and Chappell came on board in 1999 through various City Paper ads and subsequent auditions. Field re-entered the picture in early 2001 after playing for several years with acclaimed DC band Mobia's Trip, enhancing Dexter's popularity and sound. In short order, Dexter's recorded their first EP, a six-song collection of originals that included proven audience favorites such as 'Take It or Leave It' and 'Love Song,' a Mid-Atlantic Song Contest finalist. The band is a regular on the DC club circuit in venues such as the Metro Cafe, Mr. Smith's, and the Hard Rock Cafe and in northern Virginia hotspots like Rhodeside Grill and the Clarendon Ballroom. Dexter's has also performed across the mid-Atlantic in New York, Baltimore, Newark (DE), and Charlottesville (VA). Now entering their third year with the release of their first full-length CD, 'True Love,' Dexter's Sandbox eyes the next level with good reason. As a pre-release, the title track spent it's first two weeks at #1 on the Washington Post's most requested MP3 listener's poll. Keep an eye out for this band.
