Bio

Resist the temptation to call The Drop Steady Rockers an all-star band. While it is true that the group consists of several of the key players in New Mexico's ska and reggae scene over the past 2 decades, DSR is merely a musical collaboration of artists that are also passionate students, fans, and players of ska, rocksteady, and reggae music. The members of Drop Steady Rockers, and their fans alike, pay homage to the infectious grooves that have been developed over five decades by the numerous pioneers of ska and reggae music from its humble beginnings in Trenchtown. The group acknowledges The Maytals, The Skatalites, The Wailers, Derrick Morgan, Desmond Dekkar, Alton Ellis, Burnig Spear, Keith & Tex, Selecter, The Specials, The Slackers, The Aggrolites, and many more in influencing the group's approach to creating music. Furthermore, members of DSR have had the privilege of sharing the stage in support of such artists as The Wailers, Eek-a-mouse, Yellowman, Ziggy Marley, The English Beat, Easy Star All Stars, Burning Spear, and many more. Officially established in the fall of 2008, The Drop Steady Rockers include; Otto Barthel (Giant Steps, Sub Agencia), Ben Williams (CrazyFool), Anthony Antognoli (Sub Agencia, CrazyFool), Mike Silva (Giant Steps, New Continentals), Dan Garcia (Lion Tribe, Better Endings, The Old Main), and Dan Penick (Giant Steps). The band's superb song writing, professional approach, and love for performing make each and every Drop Steady Rocker's show a unique and inspiring event.
