After you see DoDriver play a show you feel like you got the deal of a lifetime and that you should have payed to see them at an arena. There aren't too many groups that give you a great live performance AND sound like they do on the CD. DoDriver plays 90's style rock and does it really well!

Biography

DoDriver is an old-fashioned, kick you-in-the-teeth-with-the-songs kind of rock and roll band. This band is like many of the groups from the 70's that were unpolished yet had whatever "it" was that made audiences fall in love with them. Dodriver is NOT a bar band but a stadium band that you might see in an occasional bar or nightclub. The band is tight and more than able to deliver one great show after another with their sights set on playing for large crowds across the U.S and beyond.

As well as Buffalo and its many surrounding cities, DoDriver has performed in
Lansing, Michigan
Cleveland, OH
Erie, PA
Toronto and Niagara Falls, Canada
Portland, ME
New York, NY
a two-week, nine show “mini tour” of Puerto Rico that culminated at the Hard Rock Café in San Juan.

DoDriver’s music is rooted in rock with a definite riff-oriented style, mix in a few pop elements and you get great commercial appeal. They have shared the stage with
I,Mother Earth
The Tea Party
Moist
Teenage Head
Staind
Oleander
Emerson Hart of Tonic
Soul Asylum
Smash Mouth at the Niagara Falls, NY Hard Rock Cafe's 2011 New Year's Eve Guitar Drop.

Lyrics

Read it wrong

Written By: Jody Velletta

Go and wash your face with some Turpentine just to feel that burn from long ago
Listen up 'cause I'm not gonna tell you what you want to hear
You were wrong, I was right and now it's way too clear
Sometimes I dwell on your faults and mine and I blame myself for never trying
I think we could have spent half the time and been twice as far without the lying
