Dog Friendly Band!


We are the Dog Friendly Band!  A little bit of this and a little bit of that with plenty of quirk to make it work!  A eclectic mix of jazz, funk, rock, and world music...  Unruly originals with a few reworked covers to round out the mix.  An upbeat duo of Wilbur on guitar and vocals with Erynn on elec. bass and steel drums!

Check out Erynn on solo steel drums! Taking the steel drums places you never thought it'd go...  I eat, sleep and breathe the steel pan.  This is my passion!  Let me let YOU fall in love with the steel pan too!   Find/book Erynn through Gigsalad!  AND  Follow Erynn on Instagram!

Wilbur Krebs is a freelance bass player and guitarist who also plays the lead pan and builds/tunes steel drums   His virtuosic bass playing abilities has found him in the company of many exceptional musicians over the years like Bob James, Willie Nelson, Bob Weir (RatDog), Paul McCandless, Anthony Braxton, Alphabet Soup, Donald Byrd, Larry Schneider, Norman Connors and Steve Smith, just to name a few...  Or book Wilbur through Gigsalad!

Wilbur also offers lessons on bass, guitar and steel pan.  Wilbur spent years in the Bay area playing bass with some of the best of the best and will expand your world of jazz theory off the geographic map.  Please visit our contact page and drop us a line for more information.

We are so very honored to be inspired by the steel pan, national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago!  So prominent in Trinidad and Tobago's history there are pans proudly printed on the back of every $20 bill! The pan has a rich, fascinating and vibrant history from the 30's and 40's until today.  From its deep roots in Africa to tamboo bamboo bands and biscuit tins to Winston "Spree" Simon and the crucial innovations of Ellie Mannette, Anthony Williams and Bertie Marshall to the proliferation of the modern steelbands and steel orchestras we have today!  Once this marvelous instrument grabs hold of your soul, there's no looking back!
