Glim Dropper is an independent rock trio from Philadelphia. Dan Kauffman (bass and vocals, wisdom and light); Ben Geise (Guitar and something dark and seriously twisted) and Rob Schnell (percussion and laughter, anecdotes and irony) make up the band. They are committed to creating original rock and roll with real instruments. Two of the songs off their album "Last Days of Analog" were recorded entirely analog: no computers were used, the music was recorded to tape, after which Dan and Rob carefully boxed it up and took a train to NYC, where the tape was read by special, very old machines, and a 7' vinyl record was made. (Ben was probably sleeping at the time).
Glim Dropper formed in late 2008. The trio's sound ranges from reggae and funk to heavier rock. The group, originally known as the Dan Kauffman Band, was assembled by Dan to perform his first independent release "A Human Condition". As the band began to collaborate on song writing, and after rejecting thousands of possibilities they decided to rename the band Glim Dropper. Dan Kauffman is an accomplished singer, songwriter, bassist, drummer, and guitarist. Having written all the tracks on "A Human Condition" Dan is the creative center of the band. Rob Schnell brings an experienced hand to the trio having performed with Spencer Davis and Bo Diddley as well as recording and touring with Tracy Grammer. Other than their collaboration on the material for "A Human Condition" Dan and Rob have performed together in various ensembles since 2005. Guitarist Ben Geise is the newest member of Glim Dropper. While studying Jazz at the University of Pittsburgh Ben performed with Benny Golson, Curtis Fuller, and played with various jazz ensembles.
Glim Dropper wishes to promote federal, state, local, and personal responsibility, through sincerity and syncopation.
