Andy Chaves was tragically taken too soon earlier this year in a car accident along with 2 others along Pacific Coast Highway in Newport Beach, CA. Andy formed Katastro in 2007 in Tempe, AZ with drummer Andrew Stravers, and Tanner Riccio before later adding bassist Ryan Weddle.
They are known for being a fan driven, hard working, lyrically profound alt-rock band led by Andy’s ability to rap and deliver melodic hooks around party anthems.
Since 2007 the band had released 6 full length albums, 2 acoustic records and a couple EP’s. Andy was shown recently in the studio working with members of Dirty Heads as it was reported that the group was writing for a new album before his tragic passing.
