Aronas understand the art of mastering its audience through the gradual building and release of tension in a skill that is becoming all too rare amongst dance orientated live groups. The band has already gained a cult following through strong and passionate live performances.
OffTheMeters.com caught Aronas at London's Jazz Refreshed where they perfomed tracks from their debut album as well as some un-released tracks from their forthcoming album. OffTheMeters.com also filmed an interview with band members Aron Ottignon, Samuel Dubois and the infamous 'Retro'.
An original version of Aronas was formed in Sydney by Aron Otignon. The current version of Aronas was setup in 2006 when Aron came to the UK after a prominent music career in Australia and New Zealand. Samuel Dubois joined Aron and the other musicians in the Uk band, originally to play percussion. Sam being a Steel Pan player naturally introduced pans to the Aronas sound. The result is a live dance dance act that always gets the crowds jumping.
