Fans of brassy '60s-era rock might recognize this incoming Alive After Five headliner from its past as Major and the Monbacks, the name under which the band once produced a self-titled album. Now known as Super Doppler, the group formed in Norfolk, Virginia, in 2008 and, in 2015, Major and the Monbacks (self-released, 2015) was named theVEER Magazine Music Awards Album of the Year. The band was also nominated in VEER for Best Song ("Be My Baby") Best IndiePop Band and Best Live Performers in 2014.
Now, Super Doppler is passing through Boise on a promotional tour for its newest album, Moonlight Anthems (2017), which was released in June. The record features what the band calls "rock 'n' roll and psychedelic-soul" tracks with a bit of funk flair, and is guaranteed to get your feet in gear for a Wednesday night dance party.
