Description

Mark Englert (lead, rhythm guitar)
Peter Wood (lead, rhythm guitar)

Tony Snow (drums)

 

Rooted in distorted grit, punk energy, and American songbook eloquence, Dramarama has always been both classic and cutting-edge. With the group’s seventh full-length and first album in 15 years, Color TV, the iconic New Jersey alternative rock quintet—John Easdale [singer, songwriter], Mark Englert [lead, rhythm guitar] Peter Wood [lead, rhythm guitar], Mike Davis [bass], and Tony Snow [drums]—not only preserve, but strengthen the spirit that established them as a history-making force in 1982. Color TV amplifies their significance once again for a new era.

“We’re still here after all these years,” John leaves off. “Three of us graduated high school together, the others have been with us almost 25 years. We have a lot of shared history. It’s hard to separate our personal lives from the music. I hope people enjoy it. We’re very proud to have our place.”
