Adema is a rock band from Bakersfield, California consisting of guitarist Tim Fluckey, bassist Dave DeRoo, and drummer Kris Kohls. After their first two albums, Adema and Unstable, Mike Ransom left the band in 2003 followed by Chavez later in 2004 due to conflicts between themselves and other members of the band. Luke Caraccioli replaced Chavez in early 2005 for one album, Planets, but then left a few months later in late 2005. In 2006, Adema announced that vocalist Bobby Reeves and guitarist Ed Farris, both from the band LEVEL, had joined the band. This lineup lasted over 3 years but only released one album, Kill the Headlights. It wasn't until August 13, 2009 that the original line up was reunited with Bobby Reeves and Ed Faris agreeing to leave the band. However Ransom showed extreme minimal participation in the reunion and left once again in late 2010, followed soon by Chavez in early January 2011.
