The Hip Abduction
Supporting Acts: I-Resolution The Hip Abduction
Reggae/Afro-pop => Formed in 2009 on the west coast of Florida the band has quickly grown from just a few African instrument playing surfers to a full blown 7 piece reggae power house. Recently picked up by M. Goldwasser (Easy Star Records) to produce new 2013 LP. The Hip Abduction is a Florida-based 7-piece band that mixes African traditions, rock, and reggae vibes to create their own unique sound. With heavy emphasis placed on dub-reggae-inspired bass lines, funky afro beat percussion, and a 2 piece horn section, concerts never fail to turn into a nonstop dance party. Members David New (guitar, vocals), Pat Klemawesch (Kora, Nyatiti, guitar, Kamelngoni, vocals), Chris Powers (Bass), Paul Chlapowski (keys), Kevin Clark (trumpet), David Johnson (sax), Matt Poynter (Drums), Pat Hernly (Percussion) and Vinny Euliano (sound engineer, congas) are continuously stirring up an absolutely original creation as reflected in their latest album 'One Less Sound.' THA is currently touring the east coast and working on a 3rd studio album.
