The Expendables, California’s sensational reggae rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!
The band was formed in Santa Cruz in 1997 and consists of Geoff Weers (guitar and vocals), Adam Patterson (drums and vocals), Raul Bianchi (lead guitar) and Ryan DeMars (bass). Their musical style is a blend of reggae, punk rock, and 80s style dueling guitar solos. They’ve had a stellar career with 7 albums and they’ve toured with many renowned bands such as 311, Pepper, Slightly Stoopid, Kottonmouth Kings, Less Than Jake, and G. Love and Special Sauce. They were the headlining act for the Ladera Skateboards Winter Blackout 2012 Tour along with Fortunate Youth, MTHDS, and The Roots. They’ve also mentioned the possibility of doing a split album with themselves. Raul said in an interview with Monday Magazine, “One of the things we’ve thought about doing is a split with ourselves, where we do two EPs in one: one all metal and one all reggae. And one of the ideas we approached was doing newer versions of some songs. Like maybe doing heavier versions of some of our reggae songs and doing reggae versions of some more rock or metal songs. We don’t really have time for it right now, but it’s something that we’re definitely considering.”
