The Hip Abduction is a Florida-based 7-piece band that mixes African traditions, rock, and reggae vibes to create their own unique sound. 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.'
THA is currently touring the east coast and working on a 3rd studio album.
