Tonight on Local/Live: Dr. Science


Dr. Science originated in conversations between Mike Pauers and Jay Arpin (both members of Clamnation) regarding their mutual admiration of the funk/fusion experiments of Herbie Hancock in the 1970’s, specifically his Headhunters lineup.  When they realized they were serious about pursuing this music, they put together a group of like-minded musicians for these further explorations: Matt Meixner (Five Card Studs, Hudson, Recycled Future) was contacted first, for his keyboard and improvisational wizardry, and Matt suggested that Todd Richards (Todd Richards Group, The Tropics, Recycled Future, Brazzaville) would be a great fit on guitar.  Duane Stuermer (Sweetbottom, Oceans, George Busateri, etc.) was perhaps the only logical choice for bass duties; his long resume and reputation as the go-to bassist for funk and jazz fusion speaks for itself.  With this core group in place, the experiments on stage began in the fall of 2008.

Dr. Science has recently recorded six tunes, to be released later this year. Tune into WMSE’s Local/Live tonight to get a sneak preview of those tunes — to stream live or in the archives or simply tune your radio to 91.7 FM on your radio dial.
