Hailing from Chicago, The Drastics bring a distinctive edge to their take on reggae and dub. The band started out as a strictly instrumental act showcasing exotic winding melodies on strange instruments and live dub effects in the vein of the classic producers. After some early lineup changes, the foundation of the band became the rhythm machine of drummer/producer Anthony Abbinanti and bassist Chris Merrill. They have since added vocalists Fada Dougou and MC Zulu to the mix, broadening the band’s already deep musical range.

Current Lineup:
Anthony Abbinanti - drums & percussion/bari sax/studio production
Brian Citro - guitar
