CP got his first guitar when he was 11 and started trying to learn Cream and Zeppelin songs by playing along to vinyl records. Years later he formed a band with some high school classmates. A few gigs and they were the coolest dudes around. After high school, CP got to playing with several bands, gigging at clubs and events all over Ontario. Then life happened and CP put his guitar playing on hold. One day, a fit of inspiration saw him take his guitars out of storage and place them around the living room as interior design accessories. Suddenly close at hand, he had a rejuvinated interest in playing them. It wasn't long before his chops came back and he formed Dramazoid, the perfect band to showcase his shock and awe guitar sound that gets audiences up and cheering.
Debo comes from a far-away land of vampires called Romania, hence his funny accent. A rocker at heart, Debo's exposure to different genres has widened his musical views as evidenced by having recently played bass on GINGA, a world music album by DansBand which is available on iTunes. Debo is always working to be better musically, having played on metal, rock, and world music albums in addition to playing live on various stages both in Europe and Canada. Debo loves playing bass for Dramazoid, and as a vampire he’s inactive and safe.
Corey has been playing drums for more than 25 years, showing interest in a variety of musical genres. An eclectic mix of progressive rock, heavy metal, rock, funk, and jazz is the backdrop of Corey’s music journey. If it has a kick-ass groove, he's all over it. Corey has toured and recorded with a number of original bands that hail from across Canada and played with too many local bands to list. With a desire to bring something different to the music scene, Corey co-founded Dramazoid with Chris and D to cover an impressive range of music seldom heard in most live music venues. Entertainment, high energy, and a driving back beat are all part of Corey's hallmark performance metrics. He lives to entertain: A sea of outstretched arms, rocking with horns in the air. It's just what the doctor ordered!
