Reptar @ Proud Larry’s TUE 2/21
Celebrate Fat Tuesday at Larry’s with…
Hailing from the greater Athens-Atlanta-Asheville area, Reptar has been playing music ever since recorded history, but playing shows as Reptar since December 2008. Since then, the fast rising fabulous four has created quite a sensation around the Southeast. It all started with their debut 7″ recorded with producer Ben Allen, Sean P. Diddy Combs, Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, and Matt & Kim.
Reptar likes to first and foremost make people dance, and have been likened to Talking Heads, Animal Collective, Prince, Marky Mark, Lake, Air, and The Jackson 5.
The band is made up of Andrew McFarland, a Brazilian native, classically trained snare drummer, and sophomore at UGA; Ryan Engleberger, who currently attends Dartmouth College in the Artic Circle majoring in Jaco Pastorius’ fretless bass; Graham Ulicny, a herniated African Soukous guitarist and AstroBio-ElectroPhysics student at the University of North Carolina in Asheville; and William Kennedy, great godson to Herbie Hancock’s ARP 2600 and connoisseur of fine chocolate (85% cocoa or above) and sophomore at UGA.
With Reptar’s powers combined, they can topple small buildings, smaltzy restaurants, and shmuppy next-door-neighbors with their devastating wall of synthesizers and samples.
