The lights drew the eye
The instruments drew the ear but the bands compositions really painted the picture.
Papadosio’s ambient dancehall style is marked by echoing melodies and funky base.
They pierce a few genres by their steady stir of different elements including the mixing of rock and roll with ambient keys and even Afro styled drums at times, all the while with steady dancehall base shaking the floor as you shake your money maker.
The light show alone was enough to bring me. I nod my head to the tech team for this band who demonstrated a great deal of technical skill. The headliner came out at 11:15 but that’s because opening was an eccentric band called The Mantras who had ballads I liken to power elevator music, power western, power dance and even power southern gospel soul. All powerful sounds came from this jam band who had every musician riddled with remarkable prowess on their respective instrument. Each member could transition in ease between tracks. The audience really loved this opener and the crowd elated ly showed their appreciation with cheers hoorays and several you f—-n rocks. Papadosio led the crowd on a transient emotional wave as they brought us up with fast paced ambient funk rock beats to more relaxed tracks that were of a rock and roll slow dance species to grungy dance beats with, interestingly enough, acoustic elements. The mix of ambience rock and heavy dance bass created an overall pleasant experience, I came as a spectator to write a review and left a fan. I would go again.
