Mom and Dad is a side-project featuring Dopapod bassist
Chuck Jones (who goes by Mom in the project), Dopapod drummer Neal “Fro” Evans (who is dubbed And) and guitarist Ben Larroquette (who is known as Dad). Both Jones and Evan currently live in Colorado and this evening Mom and Dad will kick off a brief tour of the Centennial State. Each night the trio will offer a set of original tunes as well as a set of Black Sabbath covers.
The band’s roots date back to the Berklee College of Music where the three musicians started playing as a trio. (Jones and Larroquette actually grew up together.) They released a 2014 album, Nice Missile and will likely continue to tour in 2018 while Dopeapod is on hiatus. Mom and Dad’s current run opens at Frisco, CO’s The Barkley Ballroom tonight and comes to a close at Steamboat Springs, CO’s Old Town Pub on October 14.
