DRAMARAMA is a Los Angeles, California-based alternative rock/power pop band that was formed in New Jersey in 1982 and disbanded in 1994, having released 7 albums. The band formally reunited in 2003 following an appearance on VH1’s Bands Reunited reality show.
Since 1996, an evolving lineup of the band, always fronted by singer/songwriter John Easdale, has been performing live in one incarnation or another (initially billed as Easdale solo but usually joined by former Dramarama bandmates). Amid renewed interest following the Bands Reunited episode in January 2004 and a large-scale appearance at KROQ-FM’s annual Inland Invasion Festival concert (attended by more than 78,000 fans) in September 2003, Dramarama, once again began touring nationally and released a full-length studio CD titled Everybody Dies on October 25, 2005. The band has recorded new material, their 9th album titles Color TV which is out now. The current lineup consists of original founding members John Easdale, lead and rhythm guitarist Peter Wood and lead guitarist Mark Englert (Mr. “E” Boy). Rounding out the band are Los Angeles-based musicians Tony Snow (No Sugar, Tonio & The Change, Shiteland Ponies) on drums, and (former Lizzy Borden member) Mike Davis on bass.
