DC Music Rocks Note: To our knowledge this group disbanded in Fall 2018, RIP!
Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: Tomato Dodgers (tomato like the fruit, dodgers like the sports team)
Recommended if you like: Frank Zappa, Cake, Los Campesinos, Parliament-Funkadelic
Story behind your band/artist name: We dodge tomatoes because people throw them at us. We are moxious ninjas, gracefully sidestepping the organic projectiles of struggle, in search of a funky future free of falling fruit. We have dodged them professionally.
Band Members: Jeaux Phred - supreme leader / Asher "Chemtrails" Meerovich - guitar, vocals / Tera "Teranasaurus Wrecks" Duffer - keys, glockenspiel, vocals, percussion / Pete "Red Light" Myers - drums, hats / Dylan "Loud" Hinds - bass, eyeliner / Andrew "Put A Go-Go Beat On That" Velez - trumpet, vocals / Antihero - mischief
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : College Park, MD - since 2013
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: Former governor of Maryland, Martin O'Malley, once joined us for a show as a member of our band.
We have giant puppets.
We travel to spread the word of our glorious leader, Jeaux Phred. You can add him on Facebook.
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: Our shows are for those who seek something different. We dance - we feed each other toast - we rap - we build doomsday devices onstage. Every seat is the splash zone.
We will not rest until we perform on the moon.
