Homegrown Band: Katastro




A Local Music Segment airing every Monday through Friday at 11pm w/ Mo!

Tonight’s Feature Band:


Katastro formed in 2007 in Tempe, Arizona by Andy Chaves (Vocalist) Andrew Stravers (Drummer) and Tanner Riccio (Guitarist). Later on Ryan Weddle (bassist) joined the band to complete the current lineup. Katastro gained a quick following by creatively blending elements of rock, funk, blues and hip hop.
There is no sign of the band slowing down anytime soon as they recently signed with LAW Records, which is owned and operated by the members of the music group Pepper. Katastro just completed recording their new album, “Strange Nights” which was produced by Kaleo Wassman (Pepper) and Mike Sutherland and will be released September 30th. The first single off the new record is titled, “Waste The Night” and features Jared Watson of the Dirty Heads. The bands first music video produced by Todd Angkasuwan of “Waste the Night” will debut on August 7th.
The road has been a friend to Katastro this year as they have been touring nonstop. They were apart of the Stick Figure Tour, Pepper’s 3 Amigo Tour and The Expendable’s “Winter Black Out Tour. This Summer they will join forces with The Dirty Heads and will meet up with Pepper in Las Vegas this Fall.
