W raised Joe Doria has been composing and performing on Hammond Organ, piano, and varied vintage keys/synths since the 90′s. Steeped in Hammond tradition studying the giants of the instrument he also never limits himself to one style and can be seen working with new projects often. Featured in numerous bands and CD’s, audiences are dazed with his ability to comp both the bass lines and the chordal structure of a song, while at the same time adding depth and dimension to every song he performs. At home and in touch with the Hammond, knowing the instrument and it’s history so well as to make it sing in any situation.”
Leaving volleys of craters in their wake, dropping rhythm bombs that make you shake, the kind of joy only ruckus can make, however you vote there is no debate, this sound is 100% real-impossible to fake, come catch the spectacle we will create, before it slips away and is too late, we'll travel on to another state, of mind we'll find and will await, the next dimensional phase let's calculate, this quantum physical postulate to propagate and pro-create the harmonious unison to reverberate...
Yogoman hails from the planet Yog, where its inhabitants create ridiculous, quirky, and uninhibited dance moves on the regular. Yogoman landed in the Pacific Northwest finding a willing human vessel through Washington State's own Jordan Rain, currently a Bellingham restident. Rain formed Yogoman Burning Band (YBB) in 2006 to fire up the often subdued, dark and dank corner of the USA, lighting up crowds of all-ages and taking it to the streets with their infectious and engaging ska/soul brass band style.
Raised in the Jet City, Rain came up through Seattle's underground all-ages music scene in the 90's which brought about NW favorites such as - Modest Mouse, Murder City Devils, KARP, the Blood Brothers, and Behead The Prophet NLSL, which Rain played drums in. Being a generally intimate climate for experiencing music and culture, the Do It Yourself/all-ages music scene tends to instill a value of removing barriers between audience, entertainers and the industry, making it a community process, which Rain has gladly taken with him to Yogoman Burning Band. YBB invites their audiences/fans/friends to engage with their music through dance and personal connection.
YBB has toured with Iron and Wine, collaborated/improvised live with Pato Banton, Junior Reid, Geologic of the Blue Scholars, Winstrong, and many independent M.C.'s and instrumentalists, while sharing the stage with Jamaica's legendary Skatalites, Clinton Fearon (of the Gladiators), Camper Van Beethoven, RJD2, the Cave Singers, Helio Sequence, Dengue Fever and Orgone. YBB has built a strong name for themselves down the West Coast USA, and becoming internationally recognized for their unique musical experience.
