Dimorphodon is a four-piece ensemble founded in early 2002. The band consists of Dan Caro (drums, vocals), Andy Greenberg (guitar, vocals), Chad Mason (bass), Adam Matasar (keyboards,vocals). Dimorphodon plays predominently originals but covers are frequent in their live show.
Dimorphodon's style is based in the genre of rock, however, this is by no means a complete description of their music. Caro brings a strong jazz and funk influence while Matasar brings a devoutly classical background to the soundscape. Some of Dimorphodon's originals are elaborate instrumentals with odd progressive touches, fusing jazz with classical, while other pieces are quirky, pop-influenced offerings more likely to get stuck in your head than challenge your ear. Matasar's analog-synthesizer along with Greenberg's electric guitar effects wizardry add a gratuitous helping of psychedelia while Caro and Mason consistently pump out protean grooves to keep the tuchus shaking.
Dan Caro was born on November 19th, 1979 in New Orleans, La. Dan began his professional career at the age of thirteen. Under the tutelage of Johnny Vidacovich(Professor Longhair/Astral Project), while attending Loyola University in New Orleans, his skills ripened and he acquired a solid musical understanding. Over the years Dan has performed with such artists as George Porter(the Meters), Michael Ray and the Cosmic Krewe, Mark Mullins(Harry Connick Jr.), Marvin Stamm, John Sinclair, James Andrews(Satchmo of the Ghetto), Walter 'Wolfman' Washington and the Roadmasters, Carlos Washington(Karl Denson), Raymond Williams(Jackie McLean), Christian Scott, the Jacob Fred Jazz Oddessey, the Blue Universe Quartet, and the Boston Horns. His most recent project, the Brotherhood of Groove, was formed when Dan met guitarist Brandon Tarricone at Loyola. The Brotherhood recently finished their second national tour in support of their CD release Pocket Full of Funk, featuring John Ellis(Cha!rlie Hunter), Michael Ray(Sun Ra/Kool and the Gang) and Mike Pellara. Dan play's Mapex and Gretsch drums with Bosphorus Cymbals.
