In the chilly arctic winter of 2005, The Defrosters was started by drummer Andy Toth to heat things up in the Alaska music scene. With seasoned performers Mike Johnson on guitar and Bob Renke on bass, The Defrosters took off in the great white north with their unique “southern soul” inspired sound. Over the years The Defrosters have performed at festivals, public events and private parties throughout Alaska, living up to their mantra “Music guaranteed to heat things up”.  After completing recording sessions in Nashville, The Defrosters relocated to warmer waters and finally settled in Gulf Shores, Alabama in late 2016. Their unique mix of Reggae, Rock, Bluegrass, Funky Soul, Americana, Country and Original songs help set this band apart from others with an entertaining show that makes you want to move!
