History[edit]

The band was founded in December 1982 in Warsaw[3] by Dariusz Gierszewski/dr./, Andrzej Zeńczewski/voc.,g./, Artur Miłoszewski/b./ and Piotr Strojnowski/voc.,g./. In few months the band took two other artists: Jacek Szymoniak and Jarosław Woszczyna. In next year DAAB joined Waldemar Deska and Andrzej Krzywy. That time they played songs like Do plastica and Przed nami wielka przestrzeń.

They played in the Netherlands, France, Denmark and USSR. In 1985 they released their new album called DAAB which had a hits like Kalejdoskop moich dróg, Fala ludzkich serc, W zakamarkach naszych dusz, Fryzjer na plaży (instrumental), Ogrodu serce. The last of these has become a standard recommended for study in Polish schools.[4] After this some changes in the band occurred. They added a new member Tomasz Pierzchalski and removed Jarosław Woszczyzna and Piotr Strojnowski.

Andrzej Krzywy left the band soon for a new founded group, De Mono In 1989, because of their friendship, they returned to the band to take a part in an anniversary gig - Jarocin rockfest.[5] The band restructured into an organisation.
