Point Break first formed in 2008 as a trio. After three years of musical growth and lineup changes, the band currently features frontman Alex Starr's gritty vocals on top of a style that has been described as "the mutant offspring of a foursome involving OAR, Sublime, State Radio and The Expendables." He, along with lead guitarist Justin Budlow, create soaring guitarmonies, with Zach Starr providing monster foundations on bass, Tyler Matte utilizing thunderous metal-inspired theatrics on drums, and Julian Jacobson blasting the dulcet, trance-like tones of the tenor saxophone to round out the band's sound. Point Break's first EP - "You Should Probably Grab a Towel" is pretty self explanatory. Ranging from upbeat ska rhythms to metal-infused reggae jams, Point Break will smack you in the face, leaving you begging for another round.
