Dime$tore Prophet$

 
Performing Wednesday, August 13th at 8 and 9:30 pm on the Bryan Miller Stage!! 
 
Starting out in the clubs of Moses Lake, WA the Dime$tore Prophet$ have established themselves as an engaging creative unit. Coming together in early 2010, there was a blending of many different influences as well as a combining of many years of experience. This combination produced the acoustifunk/ indie rock sound that has become the trademark sound of the Dime$tore Prophet$. 
 
Ray G, who fronts the Dime$tore Prophet$, has been a solid single performer around the area and bring a number of influences to the table; some of which include Ben Harper, Sublime and Jack Johnson. Ray's writing communicates powerful emotions clearly and in his live performance he brings an intimacy that allows the band to connect with the audience on a deeper level. 
 
As the drummer for the Dime$tore Prophet$, John Wilson brings a diverse background into the personality of the band. Having played in and around the Western part of the United States over the past few years, John's commitment and strong professional work ethics have gained him experience that has developed him into a truly gifted drummer. John has been influenced by the likes of John Bonham, The Dave Mathews Band and Tower of Power.
 
Holding down the low end of the band, bass player Eric Groff has been a musician on the local and regional scene for almost 2 decades. Through Eric's many years of playing with different musicians and styles he has developed a laid back "in the pocket" non nonsense approach to bass playing. Eric sights his influences as The Clash, Bob Marley and Madness.
 
The Dime$tore Prophet$ original songs are made up of Ray G's poignant vocal narratives with euphoric guitar placed on the solid crowd moving rhythm platform that John and Eric provide. The Dime$tore Prophet$ also have a unique approach of breathing new life into old favorites as well as doing justice to the more contemporary selections.
