East Row Rabble East Row Rabble delivers a slick mix of funk, reggae, blues and soul with upbeat party horn lines that will get your booty shakin’ and your feet shuffling. Addressing a mixture of world issues and daily curiosities, front man Ben Drysdale’s songs explore the many, varied, and often conflicting elements of any situation with honesty, hope, and a little cheekiness. A party band that was made for the festival scene, the Rabble made waves at the National Folk Festival, St Albans Festival, and Kangaroo Valley Festival in 2019. The Rabble kicked off 2020 rocking the stage at BeerFest Canberra supporting Art vs Science, and supported Melbourne Ska Orchestra at UC Hub before COVID-19 saw their next 6 months of gigs cancelled. The band is itching to play again and can’t wait to hit the Live in Ya Lounge stage!
