Biography

Often described as creating their own brand of space rock with a fusion of 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 ability to showcase virtuosity and improvisation through tightly arranged songs, unique vocals, distinctive melodies, guitar wizardry and a skillful rhythm section.

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 musical influences, 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, psychedelia 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.

Produced by Justin Beckler, the band released their anticipated new album "Starry Messenger" on March 16th, 2012 with CD release shows at the House of Blues and Hard Rock Live. With a successful tour in support of the album and marquis festival appearances at Florida Music Festival and Jambando, look for an impressive national showing in 2013 from The Dropa Stone.
