Berklee Summer Series at Derby SquareDopapod
Dopapod is a Boston-based four-piece experimental funk group. The band's live shows showcase its meticulously crafted compositions as well as its commanding ability to improvise as both individuals and as one unit. The band's members possess supreme musicianship, but take the stage each night with a goal of keeping people dancing, entertained, and intrigued.
The band first came into being in October 2007, when keyboardist Philadelphia native Eli Winderman and Michelangelo Carubba—a drummer from Buffalo, New York, began jamming, writing and eventually playing shows. They performed as a duo until March 2008, when they expanded their sound with the addition of guitarist Rob Compa. Dopapod also recently added the talents of Chuck Jones on the bass. Dopapod is currently writing new songs as well as preparing older tunes to be recorded for their debut album, which is tentatively slated to be released in the spring of 2009.
