Each member of The Spring Standards plays multiple
instruments: Guitar, piano and bass are accompanied by all three
musicians having their own drum kit onstage, connected in the middle.
Above that, of course, the group’s bright and infectious music is buoyed
by their lead and harmony vocals.
The music industry is fueled by schlockmeisters churning
out sugary confections that make millions but provide little
enlightenment, while a courageous few pursue their creative vision in
relative obscurity, a noble ethic that earns a cult following and a
smattering of critical respect. David Dondero falls solidly and
willingly into the latter category.
