The Boston born, now generally Northeast based, but ever on-the-go Dopapod has come a long way from their college basement, DIY party roots. While maintaining to be as grassroots as their humble beginnings, the group has earned praise from taste making critics like Huffington Post, Jambase, and Relix, all the while tending to their ever expanding community of devoted listeners. The past 4 years have individually held the weight of about 150 shows, and included numerous festival appearances like Wakarusa, Summer Camp, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Peach Fest, & Gathering Of the Vibes. All of this time on stage together has given the band the opportunity to explore the wide variety of influences that has impacted them to be the players they are today. But, don’t be quick to think that the no holds barred openness to experimenting is unguided. While the brush in their hand uses every color, it’s the stroke on the canvas that gives Dopapod a distinct voice in the way of crafty songwriting.

That calculated compositional mindset and restless nature to never sit too still is what has allowed Dopapod to fully realize their fourth studio release, Never Odd Or Even. Guitarist/vocalist Rob Compa giddily tells, “We really felt that the material this time around represented a big leap forward, not just in the way we’ve been interacting as a band, but in the way our focus has become sharper in paying attention to things like melody, theme, lyrical imagery, and structure – all the elements that make a great song.”

Determined to have that maturity translate in the studio, the band enlisted friend and producer Jason “Jocko” Randall to both engineer and produce the record. Keys/vocalist Eli Winderman couldn’t be happier about how things went. “We lived at his studio for about a month for these sessions and it just clicked right away. Jocko immediately became another member of band in many ways. With his attitude and approach to the recording process, we were able to really dial in the sounds we wanted, get those perfect takes we were aiming for, and have a blast the whole way through.”

             EASY STAR ALL-STARS KICK OFF 2017 WEST COAST TOUR

 16-STOP TOUR WITH SUPPORT FROM THE LATE ONES AND THE ELOVATORS

Summer will start a little early this year with the Easy Star All-Stars kicking off their West Coast Tour 2017 at the legendary Monterey Fairgrounds, as the band’s first ever appearance at the California Roots Music and Arts Festival marks the first show on a 16-stop outing. The tour will run through late June as the band returns to reggae-friendly cities across the West Coast and Mountains. Supporting acts include The Late Ones and The Elovators.

The pioneering reggae band has made quite a name for itself with reggae covers of full albums by legendary acts Pink Floyd, Radiohead, The Beatles, and Michael Jackson, , as well as its own original material from its decade plus as a recording act. . All of the band’s albums have peaked within the Top 5 on the Billboard Reggae Charts, including Lonely Hearts Dub Band and Thrillah each clinching the #1 spot, and Dub Side of the Moon staying on the reggae chart for over 7 years. The band is gearing up to head into the studio later this year to follow up on Thrillah with a new tribute album, but the specific album they are paying tribute to has not yet been revealed.

The shows will be the first of the year for the All-Stars, who spent 2016 touring around the world with shows across Europe and America celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the acclaimed Radiodread release.

New Zealand's Katchafire began as a Bob Marley covers band named after Catch a Fire, the debut album by the Wailers. They found success with their own songs, however, creating their own brand of sunny ska and reggae.

In 1997 Katchafire was a five-piece jamming in a garage in their hometown of Hamilton, the band consisting of frontman Logan Bell (guitar, lead vocals), his brother Jordan Bell (drums), Thompson Hohepa (guitar, vocals), Tere Ngarua (bass), and Haani Totorewa (keyboards, vocals). It wasn't until 2002 that they tentatively released one of their original compositions, "Giddy Up," as a single. It became the highest-selling single of the year, and the album that followed, Revival, went double platinum.

Managed by Grenville Bell, father of bandmembers Logan and Jordan, they embarked on a grueling touring schedule. Added to the lineup were Leon Davey (percussion, vocals) and Jamey Ferguson (saxophone, keyboards, vocals), with Ara Adams-Tamatea brought in to replace Tere Ngarua. A horn section, consisting of members of French band Mr Gang, was brought in to expand the band's big sound even further for the recording of their 2004 album Slow Burning.

With the group still touring almost constantly, Adams-Tamatea chose to quit performing to become their booking agent, and Tere Ngarua was brought back to fill his old position on bass. Hohepa also left the group, to be replaced by their manager, Grenville Bell. This lineup then recorded the 2007 album Say What You're Thinking, traveling from Hamilton to Auckland to use the facilities of York Studios
