The Hip Abduction

Reggae/Soul/Surf. “Members of this tight and energetic Florida based band have laid stakes all over the world and bring to the party international traditions, rhythms and instruments” SPT. Just selected (2013) by M. Goldwasser of Easy Star Records (Matisyahu) to produce next record!

The Hip Abduction is a Florida-based 7-piece band that mixes African traditions, rock, and reggae vibes. With heavy emphasis placed on dub-reggae-inspired bass lines, funky afro beat percussion, and a 2 piece horn section, concerts never fail to turn into a nonstop dance party.

The fact that the band has played and resided all over the world helps merge traditional music with original ideas to make a powerful songwriting machine. Members David New (guitar, vocals), Pat Klemawesch (Kora, Nyatiti, guitar, Kamelngoni, vocals), Chris Powers (Bass), Paul Chlapowski (keys), Kevin Clark (trumpet), David Johnson (sax), Matt Poynter (Drums), Pat Hernly (Percussion) and Vinny Euliano (sound engineer, congas) are continuously stirring up an absolutely original creation as reflected in their latest album ‘One Less Sound.’
