Effective Dose. Noun. The amount of any given stimuli administered in order the achieve the desired therapeutic effect.
In 2008 during their studies at Berklee College of Music, multi-instrumentalist Andrew Krahn, trombonist Rob Krahn and bassist Will Raymund joined forces with drummer Kyle Ruggieri and ED's creator, guitarist Mike Rabito to form the most effective incarnation of the band to date! Through a mutual passion for live performance and pushing musical boundaries, ED began writing and arranging original material to share with the world.
They have since shared the stage with Future Rock, Mike Gordon, The Breakfast, Brothers Past, Rubblebucket, U-Melt, The Indobox, 2020 Sound System, Ryan Montbleau, Jimkata, Poogie Bell, Max Creek, Roots of Creation, Toubab Krewe and many others up and down the East coast.
ED's fans (ED-heads) know that the band will transcend time, space and genre by synthesizing Middle Eastern, Latin, Dub, Drum 'n' Bass, Funk, Electronic and Rock music. The Effective Dose creates a high-energy experience that speaks strongly to their devoted fans. (Keyboards + horns + guitar + bass + electronics + vocals + percussion) > the sum of its parts.
The Effective Dose continues to expand creative realms and shed light whenever and wherever possible.
