After playing in bands together throughout middle and high school, Ram Stamos (Drums), Adam Weyant (Guitar + vocals) and Jared Rinaldi (Vocals, bass + keys) went their separate ways, each having to endure some combination of homelessness, bad relationships, dead-end jobs and run-ins with the law. Ultimately, it was a renewed focus on their undeniable artistic chemistry and the music born of it that got them on track again.
After writing and recording their debut EP as the newly christened KITARI, the band began playing shows in and around NYC. To date, they’ve rocked stages at such esteemed venues as Mercury Lounge, Arlene’s Grocery, Bar Matchless, the Shrine and Bowery Electric to name only a few. They’ve also received airplay on Radio Woodstock and have been featured in Pancakes and Whiskey.
