“Every single second is a blessing if you count them all,” sings frontman Matthew Roads. You can hear the sincerity in his voice; the joie de vivre that oozes from everything Tropidelic does is apparent. When they take a stage, their synergy flows member to member—horns blow, knees kicked high and grins are passed from one man to the next. Almost immediately it spreads to the crowd, lifting hands in the air as their feet begin to move and the pulse collectively becomes that of one.


Hailing from the desert of Tempe, Arizona, the members of Katastro gather to create a unique sound, blending elements of rock, funk, blues and hip hop. Formed in 2007 by vocalist Andy Chaves, drummer Andrew Stravers and guitarist Tanner Riccio, later joined by bassist Ryan Weddle, Katastro has been gaining a lot of exposure while impressing their peers at the same time. Opening for national acts such as the 311, Bad Religion, Awolnation, Dirty Heads, New Politics, Method Man, Redman, Ghostface Killah, Tomorrows Bad Seeds, and Passafire, they continue to pull in their audience with their intriguing and entertaining live show.

In 2008 the band released an EP entitled “The Facts”. Followed by “Poking Holes In A Pattern” produced by Bob Hoag, which was released in late 2009. In October of 2011, Katastro released their 4th studio album entitled "Gentle Predator".  

Katastro has gone on national tours with such acts as Tomorrows Bad Seeds, Passafire, and Pacific Dub. They recently relocated to southern california and are currently working on their next album.
