Scar of the Tropics / Bio

Scar of the Tropics has changed their name to ElegantMesswpb please look them up here on Reverbnation under their new acct. Elegant Mess WPB. Scar is no longer an active acct. They are a young, energetic, pop/punk/rock band out of West Palm Beach, Florida. This female fronted, four-piece band of talented musicians comes from a variety of backgrounds and experience. That variety provides their audience with a plethora of musical gems to choose from. From the mellow, jazzy "Movin’ On," to the punk/pop "Drifting (Who I Really Am)," to the all out rocking "You," and everything in between, listeners are sure to find their new favorite tune. Scar’s sound contains shades of No Doubt, Evanescence, Green Day, Sublime and Bob Marley, just to name a few.

The band was originally formed in 2011 by guitarist/vocalist Todd Deason. Lead vocalist, Melinda Elena, came on board in mid-2012 and drummer JC Dwyer and bassist Ross Rucker Jr joined the lineup in 2014. Scar has performed at various nightclubs and venues in the South Florida area, always providing high energy entertainment to the masses. The band pulls from each of its individual member’s musical influences to create songs that have their own unique signature. After their recent tour in northern and western Florida, Scar had the privilege of performing with Quiet Riot in September 2013!! The band is currently in the studio working on new material while still performing live shows as often as their schedule will allow.
