Music is more fun with friends. Dan Webb knows this better than anyone. In 2009 he stepped into the studio and single-handedly tracked all the guitar, drums, bass and vocal parts for his self-titled debut Dan Webb and the Spiders. Once the album was complete, he assembled an all-star team of musicians from various Boston bands to play some live shows.  As local interest built, the band formed into a more cohesive group and began working together on a second album, 2010’s OH SURE. The Spiders hit the road for the first time in support of this release in various basements and bars throughout the East Coast and Midwest in April of 2010.
