In 1994 a group of musicians in Vasa wanted a place to practise and play their music so they founded The Doo-Bop Club as a non-profit organization. In 1995 they orginazied their first concert and since then the organization and its volunteers have actively been running a music club in the heart of downtown Vasa. The Doo-Bop Club mission is to offer high quality live music in a friendly atmosphere. The goal has always been to offer a place for musicians to play their own kind of music, the kind that isn’t suitable anywhere else. The music ranges from jazz and blues to funk, salsa and country music.

The live acts that perform at Doo-Bop are local and national as well as international top acts. Famous artists who have performed at the club include Peter Erskine, Terry Lynn Carrington, Ari Hoenig, Jim Campilongo, John Abercrombie, Gilad Hekselman, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Esbjörn Svensson, Nils Landgren, Georg Riedel, Janne Schaffer, Peter Asplund, Jukka Eskola Music Is the Weapon and Bo Kaspers Orkester.
