THE DOPPLER TRIO at the Sound Room
In 2004, Thelonious Monk, Ozzy Osbourne and John Bonham walked into a dark and quiet bar to discuss forming a new music project. They agreed that the music should simultaneously swing hard, rock hard and generally excite their listeners. At the bottom of the bottle of small batch bourbon, the musical details had been hashed out and THE DOPPLER TRIO was born. . .
THE DOPPLER TRIO is a tenor sax, upright bass and drum set trio that sets out to play music that has the drive of rock, the harmonic and melodic vocabulary of jazz, and the joy of a backyard BBQ with good friends, skateboards, sunshine and plenty of food and beverage. The music is written and performed with the intent of bringing every listener along for the wild ride.
