Low Rock and Unusual Music prevail from the band Vapors of Morphine as they continue the path that the seminal Boston band Morphine started decades ago. Tonight the band celebrates the 25th anniversary of the release of Morphine's CURE FOR PAIN.

The 90s band Morphine pioneered a new type of music  Low Rock  featuring the unusual yet seductive lineup of baritone sax, 2-string slide bass and drums. Morphine burned bright and fast but was snuffed out before its time when leader Mark Sandman passed away in 1999. From its ashes have risen Vapors of Morphine.

Vapors of Morphine honors the progressive legacy of its predecessor. Original Morphine members Dana Colley (baritone sax) and Jerome Deupree (drums) are joined by transplanted New Orleans slide guitarist Jeremy Lyons. They create dreamy soundscapes, applying inventive arrangement to the unique instrumentation of electric baritone saxophone (evocative of Jimi Hendrix guitar), the Sandman-style 2string slide bass (sometimes electric bouzouki or guitar) and mad, jazz-rock drums. Morphine songs are complimented by psychedelic renditions of West African tunes, originals and obscure covers by the likes of Brian Eno, Dock Boggs, and Latin Playboys, all of which and more are featured on their latest release entitled A New Low. Vapors of Morphine leave audiences from Boston to Brazil, New Orleans to the Netherlands wanting more.
