Burrows & Dillbeck
Burrows and Dilbeck consists of vocalist/pianist Spencer Burrows and master guitarist /recording engineer Kris Dilbeck. Although they both originated from just North of San Francisco bay area ( Sonoma County ), their musical connection hadn’t started brewing until they connected in 2002 while working on music recording projects together at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After their stint at Berklee concluded, they both landed back in their home towns and started a group called FunKtion with musicians, Dane Lundy (bass) and Aaron Haggerty (drums). Function recorded a handful of original songs that were never released, but only had one performance before calling it quits. The duo went on to create a new group in called Spencer B and the FSDs with musicians, Emily Froberg (bass) and Cory Stück (drums) which in 2005 would be the makings of the original band, Frobeck. In just 4 years, Frobeck would record 3 original albums, win the Mystic Theater battle of the bands and be named “Best of the North Bay.” In 2010, they caught the attention of management and expanded the band to include a horn section (Bari saxophonist and longtime friend, Alex Scammon, tenor saxophonist, Alex Garcia, and trumpeter Cayce carnahan), and a grossly over qualified backing vocalist ( Callie Watts – who would later become Kris’ wife ).
