The Pousette-Dart Band (also known as PDB) was an American soft rock group active in the 1970s and early 1980s. Originally conceived in 1973 as a string band from Cambridge, Massachusetts, PDB comprised Jon Pousette-Dart, John Troy and John Curtis. With a shift to a more commercially oriented sound and a steady succession of additional personnel, the group went on to record a series of albums for their label Capitol Records, two of which(Amnesia and Pousette-Dart Band 3) made the Billboard Top 200. Their single "For Love" reached #83 on the Billboard charts.[1]

Although the band formally broke up in 1981, members reunited in 1991 for a series of concerts, and a "Best Of" album was released in 1994. Since then collaborations between various former personnel have continued, with original members Jon Pousette-Dart and John Troy also launching solo careers.

The song "Fall on Me" from the band’s second album Amnesia featured in the eleventh episode of the second season of Lost.[2]

Jon is the son of Richard Pousette-Dart.[3]
