Seattle's Dope Smoothie has become a catalyst for the sophisticated melodies and engaging lyrics of singer/guitarist Josh Bate. Nimble bassist Zach Clements and the driving style of drummer John McCallum has turned Dope Smoothie into a torrential musical force with live shows becoming energetic displays of raw grit and humor. Through the course of recording their latest full-length, 'Go Strike', the band acquired the skills of keyboardist Dan Katzer. Dan's poignant and sometimes quirky inflections have channeled the bands sound to a music bursting with color and shock. Dope Smoothie has achieved success over the airwaves with their debut album 'for milking' and the follow-up LP 'Go Strike', receiving airplay on nearly 400 radio stations across the U.S. The band has performed at some of Seattle's most respected venues and festivals, had their music featured on MTV's The Real World: Austin, and has successfully toured up and down the west coast and across the United States.
