Biography

The Draves are Dave Fox (aka Dr. Drave), keys; Chip Newton (aka Newtonious), guitar; and Michael Bolejack (aka M.B. Jack), drums. They are based out of Greensboro, North Carolina where they formed in 2011 as a rehearsal band for some of Dr. Drave's newest songs. From the beginning, they perceived themselves as a far different representation of the music of Meldavia than their sister-group, The Meldavians (Dave Fox, Scott Sawyer, and Melissa Reaves.) Wheras the Meldavians are a groove band with catchy pop tunes, The Draves set out to be a trio with a much harder edge, much like the classic rock trios such as The Who, Rush, and, at times, Hendrix.
The Tunes are still pretty catchy though.
