Progressive groove quartet Dopapod is elated to announce they will once again ring in the New Year at the Worcester Palladium. Dubbed The Ball Drop, the event will also feature Turkuaz & Kung Fu and is presented by Live For Live Music & Disc Jam. With all three bands being long-time friends and no strangers to collaborating, the evening is set to be an exciting night of music.

The Ball Drop will come as Dopapod wraps up a massive fall and winter tour with the soul-funk quintet, The Nth Power. This four-month run kicks off this Friday, September 18 at the Catskill Chill, which will find Dopapod & Turkuaz joining forces to form DopaKuaz. The two bands will be playing a special Studio 54 set together celebrating the music of the legendary disco era. This is anticipated to be the dance party of the weekend in honor of the festival's final year being held at Camp Minglewood.

The upcoming tour follows an action packed summer, including illustrious appearances at Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, Red Rocks, Peach Fest, Electric Forest, High Sierra and more. All of this time on stage with each other has given Dopapod the opportunity to explore the wide variety of influences that has impacted them to be the players they are today.  But, don't be quick to think that the no holds barred experimentation is unguided. While the brush in their hand uses every color, it's the stroke on the canvas that gives Dopapod a distinct voice in the way of crafty songwriting.

Dopapod has come a long way from their college basement, DIY party roots.
