Papadosio is a five-member band from Athens, Ohio that creates a hybrid of live and electronic styles. The eclectic group is popular with the jam band crowd due in large part to its tendencies to include long bouts of improvisational solos inspired by rock, blues and jazz. However, Papadosio couples this approach with livetronica elements that affords it the opportunity to play around with producers of dub and techno. This combination of somewhat disparate styles has helped Papadosio build bridges between fans of several styles of music. The band recently relocated to Asheville, North Carolina, where it is beginning to become a fixture on the music festival circuit.
