CAUSE4DRAMA is a Canadian rock band born from a group of young West Coast musicians who have been playing music professionally for over a decade. In 2006, after performing for years with other musicians, the group met each other at an annual benefit concert. After that chance meeting, CAUSE4DRAMA formed with Rocky Jr. on vocals, lead guitar and harmonica, Nate Cavalli on guitar, Chris Nagle on bass, and Brian Tansley on drums.
Since their formation, CAUSE4DRAMA has been bringing their electrifying, high energy shows to a growing number of fans throughout the lower mainland of British Columbia and beyond. The chemistry between the band members is strikingly apparent the moment they hit the stage, immediately engaging their audience and leaving their mark on music fans in need of a fresh sound.
The drama that the four band members cause in their lives and relationships is what the band writes about. Without the drama, there is no music; without the music, there is no drama – thus CAUSE4DRAMA.
Veteran singer and guitar player Rocky Jr. has performed nationally and internationally playing to crowds from 60 to 60,000. Rocky defines himself as a propulsive and engagingly original artist, blending confessional lyrics with modern rock attitude and Texas-style electric blues guitar.
Nate Cavalli’s delivers an eye catching, ear popping performance experience. His presence resembles that of a great guitar rocker reminiscent of the classic rock heroes he grew up idolizing.
Bassist Chris Nagle is an insightful, gifted musician with a huge talent. Calmly confidently performing his craft and making an enormous contribution to the CAUSE4DRAMA experience.
Brian Tansley’s drums set the unmistakeable pulsing beat of the band’s trademark sound. Tansley carefully keeps the group on track and is an equal participant to the high energy Rockshow.
Remaining true to themselves, the group continues their journey together as artists and has created their own original sound. CAUSE4DRAMA has played with the likes of State Of Shock, Stabilo, Trooper, Lynryd Skynryd, Honeymoon Suite and April Wine. Playing a mix of hugely popular cover songs and their own originals, they have developed their own style and sound. CAUSE4DRAMA’s unique guitar oriented pop rock connects illustrates the hopes and dreams of today’s young people.
