The “Don’t Blame Us” band is a group of musicians who record and perform originals and covers: Americana, country, bluegrass, Texas swing, Bakersfield shuffle–nothing is off-limits with this group. They have something for everyone.

Familiar, story-telling songs, tight arrangements and layered harmonies are at the heart of the “Don’t Blame Us” band.

Everyone in DBU has performed with each other at one time or another, and all have contributed to various recording projects.

Mike Hamilton (Guitar, Vocals) started the “Don’t Blame Us” band in 2019 to play originals and Americana covers with old and new friends. Melinda Hamilton (Mandolin, Vocals) has played music with Mike in various groups since the day they met in 1981.

Dave Goodman (Fiddle, Vocals) and Archie Warnock (Bass, Vocals) are band mates from “The New Early Sunrise Band” a popular country group on the Baltimore music scene. Both Dave and Archie have played in many local groups over the years.

Dexter Keane (Drums, Vocals) is well known in the Reggae, Steel Drum and Soca communities and played with The MikeHamiltonBand on the “2 Stupid 2 Lip Sink Chronicles” video project, available on YouTube.

We’ve been creating music and enjoying each other’s company over the years. As venues start opening again we are excited to finally being able to perform live and in person.

DBU is committed to making every song, every show an enjoyable, memorable event. If you are looking for good times, good songs and a ton of fun, DBU is for you!


The Concerts in the Courtyard regular season runs April – October, Friday, Saturday & Sunday
