Spawned from funk and rock, the New Jersey-based Dapp's "frunk" style meshes spontaneity and pocket grooves with freestyle jam sessions that conclude with crisp arrangements.
The colorful foursome, whose sound has been compared to Jamiroquai and Nickelodeon cartoon "Jimmy Neutron," will return to Dogfish Head tonight.
"I absolutely love playing Dogfish Head," said frontman Dapp, the four-piece band's namesake who first gigged at the venue in late 2012. "It's already one of our favorite places to perform music. The people are amazing; not just the audience but the staff of the brewpub as well. People in Rehoboth seem to have a real passion for music and that's the kind of audience that it's the most fun to play for.
Dapp will tackle a nix of covers by Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Bill Withers and others, along with some originals, including the contagious "At The End Of The World." Boasting a portly bassline, the smooth tune reminds of Jamiroquai, but with Dapp's special twist.
The combination of the outfit's covers and originals is sure to make for a lovely night.
