The Devastators are a four piece reggae band based out of San Diego, California. Their sound is a soulful mix of Roots Reggae, Dub, and Funk, combining inexhaustible drum grooves and the old school sounds of Hammond Organ, Clavinet, and Piano. The current line-up consists of some of San Diego’s top reggae musicians including Ivan Garzon (lead vocals, bass), John Allen (drums), Alex Somerville(keyboards), and Brian Teel (backing vocals, guitar, keyboards). These four musicians alone share well over 10,000 hours of stage experience.
A graduate of Cal Arts with a BA of Fine Arts, singer/songwriter Ivan Garzon(Spaceman Spiff/Citizen X/ The PHD’s) is both an accomplished bassist and vocalist, and possesses the rare ability to combine the two seamlessly in live performance. Garzon’s talents blend well with one of the hardest working rhythm sections in Southern California, best known locally for their many years performing with Elijah Emanuel and the Revelations and Quinazo (solo project of singer Quino McWhinney of Big Mountain)
The Devastators were nominated in the 2004 and 2006 San Diego Music Awards in the category of Best of World Music. They are entering their fourth year of residency at Longboards Bar and Grill in Pacific Beach, performing three sets every Sunday evening to a packed house. In addition to Longboards they have held residencies at many SD hotspots including On Broadway, Thin Room, Winstons, and Wave House. Collectively they have performed at virtually every prominent music venue on the West Coast.
| The Devastators released their long overdue debut album entitled “Frontline” on the Peaks and Valleys Productions label. The album has been well received by both fans and critics alike.|
