Funk/Rock (Portland, Oregon)

“Dorado combines musical sophistication with funky badass grooves and raw talent. I hear everything from Steely Dan to Beck. It is really groovy stuff" - Portland engineer/musician and owner of 8 Ball studios Rob Stroup.

The head of Backline Studios Patrick Brewer, says of the group; “those guys are out there working all the time…and we thought the material was strikingly original”.

Dorado is a funk rock band from Portland, Oregon comprised of Sky Cooper (guitar, vocals), Johnny G (bass), James Ford (drums). Their new EP (Aug 2016) is called Didn’t Get Paid.

According to founder Sky Cooper, the creation of the band was a slow evolution."It's a kind of an Hip-Hop flavored rhythm section with a rock frosting. We've still got some growing to do, but that's the direction we’re heading”.
