Dallon James Weekes (born May 4, 1981) is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer who served as the third bassist for Panic! at the Disco. He replaced former bassist Jon Walker after he left in 2008 due to creative differences.
Dallon left Panic! in 2017 to form his own synth-pop duo I Don't Know How but They Found Me.
Coincidentally, Dallon is, like Brendon Urie, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Before joining Panic! At The Disco, Dallon was the lead singer, bassist and the song writer for his previous band The Brobecks. They released 4 albums and 2 EPs and enjoyed mild success but eventually disbanded after they realized they weren't getting anywhere after 10 years which formed in the early 2000s. He was offered a solo contract but declined. While Dallon has been quoted as saying he is 'embarrassed' by the work he produced with the band, he is still proud of it and willing to discuss it.
