The current line up for DMB is: 

Michael Boyack- guitar , Robert Lee - bass, Dave Taddeo - drums & Tim Henke - keys


Robert "Bobby" Lee - bass / vocals                                          Robert Lee has played bass in many genres and styles of music.  He comes from a large family of musicians and artists. Having 5 sons who are all musically talented has been his greatest achievement yet.  Robert started as a drummer and prior to that, a guitarist until the bass felt like home.  Robert joined the BRT project in early 2023. The attraction for him was simply the raw talent and professionalism of the band.  Playing bass with musicians of this caliber has been a dream realized. Robert is partial to his Marcus Miller Sire basses and Bugera rig setup.  For him they create that round, deep, clear tone many bassists look for.  Among Robert's many musical talents, such as, recording engineer, disk jockey, and sound engineer, holding the bottom in BRT tops the list.

Michael Boyack- guitar / vocals                                   Michael Boyack is a versatile guitarist proficient in many genres from the blues to hard rock with a strong focus on a heavy, melodic style. He has played in numerous Rochester-area bands and is currently one-third of the rock power trio Vantablak in addition to playing with Deborah Magone in the BRT and DMB projects. Mike enjoys writing and recording original material and collaborating with other musicians in the creative process.

Tim Joel Henke - keys / vocals                                 Tim started playing keyboards at age 4. His parents bought a Wurlitzer electric chord organ for the family.                                  Within minutes he was figuring out songs much to the amazement of his family. Music and piano lessons from the Hochstein School of Music. Majoring in music theory and composition at SUNY Brockport as well as an electronic synthesis course. Tim earned 2nd Engineer Certification at The recording Workshop.

David Taddeo - drums / percussion / vocals                                                                     Dave began playing drums at age 8 & broke into the live music scene in the early 80s. Dave began playing drums at age 8 & broke into the live music scene in the early 80s. Influenced by monster drummers Neil Peart and Phil Collins, Dave's path steered him towards the progressive rock genre where he found himself behind the kit in a Rush Tribute band before being asked to join No Camouflage. He also pulled double-duty by joining the Pink Floyd Tribute band, Dark Side of the Moon.  He honed his skills while attending both Hochstein and the Eastman School of Music.
