San Francisco's 'The Dramantics'.
Once upon a time in the remote town of Rome, Italy a storyteller was born. Massi Piazza. Walking in the musical shadows of his guitarist brother Alessandro throughout most of his more formative years provided the foundation of Massi's passion for music. Originally he hit the music scene as a DJ, yet he was constantly writing short stories. At the suggestion of a fellow DJ Massi decided it was time to combine his storytelling with music and thus began to learn to play the guitar and bass on his own. Teaming up with Alessandro, the two embarked on a quest to find the missing links to their new found project which landed them in San Francisco. In 2008 the two began working with guitarist/keyboardist, Brandon Chaves. Massi's rich baritone vocals combined with Alessandro's edgy guitar playing was a palette pleading for the ethereal ambiance that Brandon's style brings to the canvas. 80's new wave was reborn in the likes of Bauhaus, Jimmy Gnecco, JoyDivision and Morrissey. In late 2010 the three stumbled upon the next piece of the puzzle, hard hitting drummer Dominick Scala. The final element was added when Jeremy Harris (Vin Rouge) stepped up to the stage to solidify a beckoning rhythm section. Combined they have shaped a sound that fills a gap in todays music- intense, hard rocking, melodic and passionate.
