Xander Boggs (keyboardist, guitarist, vocalist), Zach Gerbi (bassist, vocalist) and Collin Fitzgerald (lead guitarist) met in high school in Space Coast Florida. The trio formed a band there after playing together in the pit orchestra for their school’s productions.
They then brought their connection up to Gainesville, where they met Tripp Jones (drums) through UF. From there, they formed Driptones (which is a spoonerism of Tripp’s name) in September 2019 and began playing around Gainesville. They have now played at events like TEDxUF and Dance Marathon.
Their upcoming release, titled “Getaway”, will be their fifth song on streaming platforms. The material is based on slowly finding out who you are as you grow up. It’s a indie alternative rock vibe and will be available to stream June 18th!
