Hailing from Denver, CO and playing their own unique style dubbed as “New American Reggae” Rastasaurus has expanded quickly in the exploding Denver music scene. Mixing a blend of influences from improvisational, reggae, rock and everything in between the band leaves a lasting musical impression everywhere they go. Centered around the prolific songwriting of Justus Lacewell (vocals, guitar), mixing thick, psychedelic grooves of Eric Ciccone (lead guitar) the smooth, funky rhythms of Mark Ciccone (bass), the virtuosic keys playing by Stephen Howell and Sam Neihaus (drums) round out the quartet.

With their original songs featuring an infusion of reggae with elements of funk, rock and roll, improvised jamming and dub, Rastasaurus is constantly exploring and expanding its own unique blend of American reggae.
