About

Superdot has been playing their brand of ska, reggae and rock since the summer of 1993 when Bobby Barnes, Jeremy Abbey, Chris Hooper and a handful of others decided to get together to re-invent the Jamaican Ska styles of the late '60s, '70s and early '80s. Throughout 15 or so years, the band's line up changed constantly, totaling over 40 members. But the group has been somewhat stable for the past 6 or 7.

Superdot has played all over the Detroit area and Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Colorado. In addition, the band has also done a little bit of undocumented work in our neighbor to the south, Windsor, Ontario.
