The Lava Rocks were born from a weekly neighborhood jam at the house of guitarist Ezra Sherman. When Sherman, Kassabian, Claxton and Hantula realized they had a big overlap in their musical tastes and a good combination of instrumental skills, the Lava Rocks were formed.
The Lava Rocks are:
Deke Kassabian - Keyboards & vocals, Ezra Sherman - Guitars & vocals, Nick Claxton - Guitars & vocals,
Don Hantula - Mandolin, lap steel guitar, & bass, Jeff Meade - Drums.
