Do a Barrel Roll! is a 7-piece live act, complete with 2 electric guitars, 2 keyboards, electric violin, trumpet, bass, and drums. These incredibly-talented musicians perform all of the parts live, with no assistance from backing tracks or overdubbing. What is heard on this album is exactly what can be heard from the stage. Even the samples you hear are triggered live by the band during the performance.
DABR! prides themselves on the audience interacting with the performance. Live shows feature audience members playing classic video games together on a massive screen whilst the band provides the soundtrack simultaneously, and sometimes the unpredictable results of the game action will change the music, right on the fly.
