Hailing from La Puente, Calif., DW3 began as an outgrowth of the family band that brothers Eric and Billy Mondragon played with throughout high school. After recruiting close family friend Damon Reel to join the group, the trio has become an integral part of the contemporary urban jazz scene. In 2004 they played on the first Warren Hill Smooth Jazz Cruise, and were subsequently booked as resident performers at Spaghettini's in Seal Beach and Beverly Hills, where they play live every week for 94.7 The Wave's Sunday Brunch Broadcast.

Eric, Billy, and Damon all contribute lead and harmony vocals, while Eric plays keys (including synth, horns, and strings) and Billy adds percussion.

Building on the success of their single "I Got You," featuring Gerald Albright, (#16 on the Billboard Charts), and their "On The Floor" album (#1 on the UK Soul Charts), the band has toured relentlessly, playing jazz festivals worldwide.

DW3's deepening artistry and ever-evolving musical vision continues to uphold their well-earned reputation as a fun, high energy, freewheeling party band.
