JJ & Dre
JJ & Dre
JJ & Dre initially formed in Chicago, IL as a trio in 2011 when the husband and wife duo of Justin and Andrea Dotoli met Jason Paradise at the city's legendary Vic Theater. The two guitarists quickly forged a strong songwriting bond and found that they harmonized well under Andrea's broad and powerful vocal range. The J.J. & Dre Trio spent most of 2011 performing in and around the Chicagoland area in a semi-unplugged setting while gradually working up the base of what is now, a strong and diverse catalogue of original material. In 2012 they released their first full length studio album, One Single Event, as well as added keyboardist/percussionist Eric Allen to the band. Allen's versatility and soulful songwriting quickly became an influential element and added another style to their diverse musical pallet. In 2013, JJ & Dre rounded out its lineup with the additions of Michael Schroeder and Andy Neel on drums and bass respectively. The band has become a musical amalgamation of sorts in that it can comfortably bounce from rock to funk to a jazzy blues all without missing a step and still manages to find pockets for exploratory improvisation on stage. In 2013, JJ & Dre released their second album, an EP called The Bandits. This album is indicative of the band's growth and progress in a short period of time, but on stage is where the band is at their best.
