Rastasaurus was uncovered in the concrete jungle of Denver, Colorado, where they’ve been building an enthusiastic following around their new reggae sound.  Centered around the prolific songwriting of Justus Lacewell (vocals, guitar), Rastasaurus also includes lifelong musical pals and identical twin brothers Eric (lead guitar) and Mark Ciccone (bass guitar).  The thick, psychedelic grooves of Ryan Kerr (keyboards, vocals) and the smooth, funky rhythms of Nick Souder (drums) round out the quintet.  With their original songs featuring an infusion of reggae with elements of funk, rock & roll, improvised jamming and dub, Rastasaurus is constantly exploring and expanding its own unique blend of American reggae.
