The Preservatives were a three-piece rock band from Murfreesboro that featured Features producer Brian Carter on vocals and guitar and Don Sergio on drums. It is believed that at one time Roger Dabbs played bass for them.
Little is known about them as they did not have a website or any known officially released recordings. They shared the bill with The Features for a few shows. Their last known show was played in 2006 or 2007 at Alley Cat for a homecoming party for Fluid Ounces bass player Ben Morton.
