The Billboard
Ra Ra Riot is an indie rock band which formed in Syracuse, New York, United States in 2006. The band consists of Wes Miles (vocals), Milo Bonacci (guitar), Matthieu Santos (bass), Alexandra Lawn (cello), Rebecca Zeller (violin) and Gabriel Duquette (drums). The band’s original drummer, John Pike died in Fairhaven, Massachusetts on June 3, 2007, drowning in Buzzards Bay shortly after a show in Providence, Rhode Island. The band continued on and released their debut full length album “The Rhumb Line” in 2008.

Formed at Syracuse University in January 2006, Ra Ra Riot is an amorphous blob (read as: band) that consists of seven highly dedicated individuals, each bringing her/his own experiences as both people and musicians to the metaphorical table. Their most recent indie pop recording is The Rhumb Line on Barsuk records for which the band received a 4 star review in Rolling Stone and is on tour across the U.S beginning in the fall of 2008.

They are dedicated to moving people physically and mentally as a means of affecting positive micro/macro cosmic change. Ra Ra Riot spends its time shaking the hands of foreign dignitaries, practicing, playing shows, eating pizza, writing strange band bios that sound like college application essays and going about the business of everyday life.

Though still infants in the world of music they have already developed significantly as people and musicians. They look forward to seeing how their sound morphs as they hit adolescence and the subsequent teen years. An invitation has been issued to come along on this journey of growth and self-discovery. Word.
