The Dropa Stone
Often described as a groovy fusion of rock with rhythm and blues, THE DROPA STONE are known for their powerful live performances and contagious original music. Weaving a landscape of visually-enhancing sounds, the group displays an uncanny ability to meld together distinctive melodies through unique vocals, guitar wizardry, a skillful rhythm section and ever-evolving story telling.
Founded in 2007 by Jon Meyers (Vocals/Guitar) and Joe Lederman (Drums), two friends conceptualized a vision and recruited Justin Henry (Lead Guitar) and Will Richey (Bass) to complete the lineup. Mining a wealth of influences ranging from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd to Soundgarden and Incubus, they have applied their talents to create an imaginative avant-garde sound through a common bond of passion and inspiration. Spreading their musical energy through their latest studio release and a must-see live show, each concert proves to be a unique experience for audiences as the band combines a tapestry of rock, funk, blues and reggae through the art of improvisation. The new lineup debuted on a tour of the west coast which saw them perform at renowned venues such as THE VIPER ROOM in Los Angeles, CA.
The band worked with producer Justin Beckler and released their anticipated new album "Starry Messenger" with a CD release show at the HOUSE OF BLUES on March 16th, 2012. They are following it up with marquis appearences at Florida Music Festival and Jambando. Look for an impressive national showing in 2012 from THE DROPA STONE.
