Noah Berry and DAB Prepare for Last San Diego Gig August 18th as Noah Leaves to Play Football and Study Music at Prestigious Whittier College with 108k Academic scholarship in Hand!

For Noah Berry, A Scholarship Obtained While Playing Football at MVHS, Has Helped Advance His Football & Music Career & that of DAB, a Band He Plays For with his Brother Steve Berry Jr & Erik Dogol Jr. as they will take their act to LA Market after Playing at San Diego Hard Rock Friday August 18th

Noah has loved two things since he was little, playing football and listening to and playing music. Noah started playing football at the age of 5 and started playing drums at VIP Village in the Stomp Band at 4 years old. He's also always excelled in school both scholastically and in sports.

Last year while playing football at Mar Vista High School Noah played slot back, defensive back 

and returned kicks and punts. He gave up baseball to run track which allowed him to concentrate on football. Noah also is a drummer for the local band DAB, aka Dogol and the Berrys. The band is made up of Noah, his older brother Steven Berry Jr. and Erik Dogol Jr. and has been playing music with them for the last 10 years.  

While a senior last year at Mar Vista Noah did so well at football and scholastically that when the season was over he started getting scholarship offers to play football for a variety of colleges and universities. Noah parlayed those offers into a $108k scholarship from Whittier College, a prestigious private school in the suburbs of Los Angeles with an excellent music department. Where Noah will play football for the Whittier Poets and continue his studies concentrating on music and his music career.

So now, Noah and DAB will be playing their last event in the San Diego area for a while. On Friday August 18th, they will be playing at the San Diego Hard Rock. After the event, Noah will 

be off to start his musical studies at Whittier College and start to prepare for the upcoming football season with the Poets. During this time, Noah, and DAB, will take their musical talents to the LA music scene and will play there while Noah is studying and playing his football at Whittier College. Most importantly for Noah, he’s at a prestigious school with a great music department that will help in turning his lifelong dream into a reality and he can enjoy a successful music career!

As for DAB, they are finishing the year in San Diego strong by headlining the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown San Diego. The show is hosted by Jonathan Avila from Sound the Groove. The going away party for our young 

 drummer Noah Berry as he embarks on his journey to further his education in music and football via scholarships to Whittier college. Show is August 18th. And they have a new single out entitled “Transcendence”, now available in SoundCloud not to mention a music video in the making and a surprise for all who attend! Tickets are $10 from the Berry Family or $15 at the door. It is a 21+ event.

Allen Camp and ARC Productions has been the band's manager the last 2 years and Jeff Forrest, has been DAB's Musical Producer since day one since the band started 10 years ago (See link below for article on band).
