Established in 2000, The Devastators are a four-piece outfit based out of San Diego, California. Their sound can be described as a soulful mix of roots reggae and dub with a hint of funk, combining heavy drum and bass grooves and the old school sounds of Hammond organ, clavinet, and piano. The current line-up consists of some of San Diego's most prominent reggae musicians including Ivan Garzon (lead vocals, bass), John Allen (drums, harmony vocals), Alex Somerville (keyboards), and Brian Teel (guitar, keyboards, harmony vocals). These four veteran performers share over 10,000 hours of combined stage experience and have backed artists such as Pato Banton, The Wailing Souls, Garth Dennis, The Itals, Edi Fitzroy, Earl Zero, Wadi Gad, Bunny Mystic, Carlos Paez (B-Side Players), Elijah Emanuel, One Drop, Kevin Kinsella (John Brown's Body/10ft. Ganja Plant), among others.
