Dave Joyce, The Adarna, The Last Year, Shadowplay, and The Blurry Nights Live at Dobbs
September 5, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 1:30 am
The Legendary Dobbs has been showcasing live original music since 1974, and is pleased to present:
The Adarna – http://www.theadarna.com/
Connect and inspire. From these three words The Adarna began to take shape.
This idea helped Moore (a vocalist and enthusiast of opera & classical music from London, UK) team-up with Jasek (a hip-hop & 80’s hair-metal inspired guitarist from Seattle, WA), Murdock (a New York jazz & metal drummer from Rochester, NY), and Hazel (a punk & new wave bassist from Philadelphia, PA).
The Adarna’s show is an Interactive experience that contains an array of music, art, and drama. It’s a wasted future motif; technology drowning the human experience of connecting with one another.
Since 2012, the band’s music has contained themes that everybody can get behind: “inner-strength and self-acceptance.”
What’s an Adarna show like? Big hooks. Interactive. High energy. You are part of it!
The Last Year – returns to Dobbs for their 3rd performance this year! http://www.thelastyear.net/
Hailing from Baltimore, The Last Year is an alternative rock band. The act stems from an idea of front-girl Niki Barr, on vocals, and Scott Ensign, playing bass and synth. The pair, complemented by drummer, BJ Kerwin, and guitarist, Scott Griffith, approach their music with a kaleidoscopic attitude, embracing diverse influences and refusing to give in to conventions.
The Last Year recently teamed up with Shanachie Entertainment in order to release a brand-new EP of new material. Describing the new release as “limitless” with “everything from buzz saw synth to airy atmospheric ambience to 80s drum sequence loops”, the group says that their latest songs come from the dark place Barr is almost known for and showcase the band’s perfect blend of natural and synthetic sounds.
Shadowplay – http://www.shadowplayrocknroll.com/
If you like music that is rooted in meaning, and makes you feel emotion then Shadowplay is a band for you. They’re epic, insightful and catchy with showmanship and passion for performing that ignites the soul into sheer bliss with lyrics that are experiential questioning the world around. Cohesive musicianship that builds tension while remaining technical but accessible and dynamic, never writing the same song twice.

The Blurry Nights – http://www.theblurrynights.com/
Philadelphia rock band, with elements of retro grunge, psychedelic rock, electronic dance or pop, with an end result that crosses mutliple genres without being able to be neatly classified into any.
