About dopplershiftchicago

Chicago, IL

Think Squarepusher meets The Ken Vandermark 5 on the rocks with a twist of Miles Davis. The quartet is comprised of Brian Niebuhr (electric trumpet), Ray Pandocchi (tenor sax), Jon Marchese (lowend) & Dave Z Marsalek (traps).

Since forming in Spring 2004, Doppler Shift has been busy producing two critically acclaimed full length albums, Physics [2005], Resistor [IZM Records, 2008], promoting and playing all over Chicago {Martyrs, Reggie’s, Beat Kitchen, Darkroom, Subterranean}, and touring the Midwest.

Doppler Shift fuses the uptempo art of live drumNbass with pounding rock, danceable funk grooves & a jazz sensibility. Many bands claim originality, but Doppler Shift puts its money where its mouth is. Take a listen to Resistor, Rule No. 8, and a smoking cover of Dave Brubeck’s Blue Rondo a la Turk from their latest release “Resistor.”

Since celebrating the release of “Resistor” on IZM Records in June 2008, Doppler Shift takes aim at the larger picture: regional touring, festivals, and working to become one of the most recognized motley brews to spring from the eclectic Chicago underground.

"just enough rock aggression and rhythmic raucousness to appeal to this generally jazz-averse rockist...explore[s] the intersection of jazz, funk, rock, and experimental music at their most extreme. The band is following in heavy footsteps in this endeavor--the Vandermark 5, George Clinton, Miles Davis and the Stooges of "Funhouse" have all aspired to the same--but it more than holds its own on "Resistor," the group's extremely impressive second album..." - jim derogatis, chicago sun-times
