The Dropa Stone rips through Bardot Miami

Known for bringing in top notch music and many independent bands on the rise, Bardot has become one of the more popular music venues in Miami. I had the pleasure of coming out to see The Dropa Stone perform at Bardot Miami on Thursday September 22nd.  Bardot’s long room decor with unique artwork, stylish couches and a great sound system was a great environment to see the band.

One can best describe The Dropa Stone as having a a solid experimental rock foundation, while sprinkling in progressive grooves with seeds of  blues, reggae and funk.  I was immediately struck with the strong musicianship and passion the band performs with. The band rolled through strong originals and even performed a  funky version of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” which got the crowd dancing. The vocal and guitar interplay between Jon Meyers (vocals & guitar) and Justin Henry (guitar) was a breath of fresh air to watch, while the rhythm section Will Richey (bass) and Joe Lederman (drums) held it together with some really tight grooves. The set showcased their original  music with some spirited jams. The crowd loved every minute of it and there is anticipation for their next Miami show.

The band has a new album coming soon and fans can check out some new music at their web site:
