Serving The Homeless

Our music was recently featured in a touching documentary called: “Serving the Homeless”. Proud to be part of the cause. It’s great to have our music used in a way that can do a positive thing for the community and overall. Our mission as a band is to inspire and create messages through music that […]

Dara In Park City

We here in Dara are so appreciative of Terry for inviting us to play on his show up in Park City. He’s really running a fantastic program up there. When I say he I do mean Terry on his own. With the exception of one intern Terry runs the entire program from the writing, to […]

PCTV Prepares For Dara!

We are excited to announce that Dara will be playing on Park City TV on Wednesday September 23rd! There is such an ecstatic feeling about playing out again after how well our CD release show went. Having all of you out to support us at The Music Garage really energized us and gave us some […]

Building The Dara Experience

Any great show is based on not just the music, but the experience. The collective communion of souls at a concert brings people together. That is ultimately what music is all about. Dara has been working on facilitating and expanding upon this experience for some time now. Aside from just tightening the set into a […]

Unique Instruments: The Hang

Here at Dara, we are always looking for new and unique sounds. Instruments that you don’t hear too often, but that maybe you should. One that fits that bill marvelously is the Hang (pronounced hung). It is often called a hang drum, because it is a percussion instrument. Felix Rohner and Sabina Scharer, the inventors of […]

The Big Release

It’s almost here! The big CD release show is coming up. August 14th is the day that everything drops. For the past year (and then a little bit) we’ve  been working on creating, recording, and getting the word out about, The Red Tiger Nebula. It’s been a wild ride so far, and is only becoming more […]

Creating Together

What is the function of music? There are many different theories about what the role of music is. One of the major purposes that it serves is as a social glue. Have you ever bonded with someone over a band or a song? The social fabric that music weaves is can create tapestries of personal connections […]

After The Tour

July is coming to a close and there’s been a lot of stuff happening since the summer started up. There was a ton of energy that went into planning the big moves we were gonna be making. But “The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft agley, An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain, For promis’d […]
