JOSH DODES BAND: Get Up'Working his piano stool like a pogo stick, Dodes played so hard the veins on his shaved head nearly popped. Now that's rock 'n roll.' -- Village Voice, New York, NY
'...the breakout potential that has started to draw major and minor labels; all smell money behind this band's hot, joyous performance.' -- Greenwich Village Gazette, New York, NY
The Josh Dodes Band has been heralded as one of the most exciting bands to come on the New York City music scene in ages. Top-notch musicianship, an exceptional live show, soulful catchy melodies, and tight grooves are just some of the factors that have contributed to this band's powerful indie success.
Funk pianist/songwriter Josh Dodes formed the JDB in 1998 after two years of increasingly successful solo shows. With the addition of several top-notch players to the mix, the band has been building its fan base throughout the Northeast at an exponential rate ever since.
The band was featured on VH1's hit show "Bands on the Run," which documented the life of four top unsigned bands on the road. Back home, the band regularly sells out the legendary Bitter End in New York City, and also plays regularly in Boston, New Haven (where they have opened for Indigo Girls), Philadelphia (where they have gotten radio play on local favorite WXPN), and Washington, DC (where, in addition to club dates, they have played the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage and the annual Kennedy Center Open House).
