Jamband Spotlight: Papadosio
Words by Greg Molitor (ReMIND Photography)
Papadosio has arrived. After years of restless touring and grassroots promoting in the Midwest, the boys from Athens, Ohio, finally broke through nationally in 2010 with explosive results. It’s been quite the journey for this band, and like most, the trip had its bumps along the way. However, like the great ones do, Papadosio rode the waves of change, stayed focused on its dreams, and continued to put forth the time and effort required to ‘make it’ in today’s jam scene. Hard work, persistence, and dedication to improving its sound has paid off for the electro-jam quartet as its future is looking brighter than it ever has before...
Papadosio’s touring schedule is ridiculously packed for the Spring and Summer with lengthy national tours as well as appearances at numerous large festival such as Summer Camp, Camp Bisco X, Wakarusa, and All Good Music Festival. Papadosio’s own festival, Root Wire, will also be taking place in Logan, Ohio, for the second consecutive year come August time. For your listening pleasure, I’ve provided links below for two fantastic 2010 festival sets from the ‘Dosio. Its output has become incredible tight and cohesive over the past few years, and I’ve found much pleasure in watching the band’s rise that was sometimes doubted but always possible. Congratulations to Papadosio for the success that has found its way to your doorsteps. Y’all deserve every moment of it.
