Summer Survivors

Summer Survivors is an American Reggae Rock band based in Sarasota, FL, which formed in February of 2013 by Paul King and John Widmann. They started out with just a love of music and two guitars, and soon realized that music was their passion, and began writing songs and crafting their own sound. The first year and a half was critical for the Summer Survivors, and finding the right mix of people who shared the same visions, goals and ideals did not happen overnight for them. However, with hope on all horizons and some hard work and dedication, the band ultimately took shape with its current lineup and began enjoying a great deal of local success and acclaim. Summer Survivors combines a reggae feel with the deep bass of funk, the driving drums of rock n' roll, and the surreal sound of psychedelic guitar with just a hint of ska and punk thrown in. They've got an original sound full of good vibes sure to get any party or event bumping and bodies out on the dance floor.


Katastro formed in 2007 in Tempe, Arizona by Andy Chaves (Vocalist) Andrew Stravers (Drummer) and Tanner Riccio (Guitarist). Later on Ryan Weddle (bassist) joined the band to complete the current lineup. Katastro gained a quick following by creatively blending elements of rock, funk, blues and hip hop. The release of No Mud No Lotus helped widen their fan base and has been their most successful album release to date. The album has received over 1.5 million plays and their hit single, Runaway has over 1,036,000 plays and 35,000 downloads on SoundCloud. There is no sign of the band slowing down anytime soon as they recently signed with LAW Records, which is owned and operated by the members of the music group Pepper. Katastro just completed recording their new album, "Strange Nights" which was produced by Kaleo Wassman (Pepper) and Mike Sutherland and will be released September 30th. The first single off the new record is titled, "Waste The Night" and features Jared Watson of the Dirty Heads. Katastro's first release was their 2007 EP entitled, "The Wonderful Daze" and was followed by their 2008 release, "The Facts." In 2009, Bob Hoag (The Ataris, The Format, Gin Blossoms) produced the EP "Poking Holes in A Pattern" and in 2011 released their 4th studio album "Gentle Predator." Katastro's most recent release was their 2014 album "No Mud, No Lotus" which features their highly acclaimed song, "Runaway."
