When One Door Closes...

As most of you know by now, one of our original members, Joe, has chosen to leave the band.  His last official show with the band will be our New Years Eve show. Although he will be missed by many, we had scour the city in hopes of finding a suitable replacement. This was no easy task. Not only did the new member need to be able to learn and play our show within a couple months, but they had to "fit in". You all know we take pride in not taking ourselves too seriously. We needed someone who wasn't offended by our sense of humor, had similar interests, and just wants to play music to entertain not only the crowds, but also ourselves. 

We went through a handful of auditions. Some really impressed us. Others, not so much. But at the end, we all unanimously agreed on the same person. Please help us in welcoming Shamar Jordan as the newest member of DFR!  He has years of experience, and his happiness, positive attitude, and drive are infectious. Starting in 2018 you'll be able to experience all that is Shamar!

Ever wanted to be a member of DFR?!

There comes a time in most peoples’ lives when they have to step back, evaluate, and make life-altering decisions to hopefully better themselves. Sometimes that means walking away from someone or something you love, which is never easy. It’s a huge leap of faith, and trusting it’s the right decision is a very tough pill to swallow.

As you may already suspect, a member of DFR is currently going through this, and has decided to step away from the band. Joe is an original member of Dance Floor Riot, and has easily cemented his legacy as a fan-favorite. He brings a charisma to the stage that is extremely admirable, and will absolutely be missed. This was not an easy decision for Joe, but he’s chosen to put his focus on his wife and 2 beautiful children, and although it’s going to potentially change the face of DFR, we fully and lovingly support his decision. 

Joe’s last show date has not yet been set in stone, but you can expect to see a new face on stage with us in 2018. So for now, come out as often as you can, buy Joe a beer (or 10), and let him know how much he’ll be missed.

That being said, anyone know how to sing and play keys?

We have begun the audition process already, but there is obviously a lot of talent in St. Louis that we have yet to tap into, and we’d love to hear from you. Obviously we play a lot, and we rehearse weekly, so please know going in that this is no “garage band” hobby. Any questions, please email

The more info you can send us about yourself, the better. Also, any video of you playing and/or singing would be helpful.

See you soon!

Holy St. Louis!

Are you a fan of ours?! (we're going to assume since you're already this far that you are)
Are you a fan of The Urge?

Well, we've got news for you!! Now, let's get this out of the way... we're NOT playing a show with The Urge (yet anyway). But when July rolls around, we'll be making an announcement involving two of St. Louis' finest... DFR and The Urge! Stay tuned!

OH... and do yourself a favor and save the date. Tuesday,  July 11.
