The Throwdowns is an American pop-island-reggae-dance band from Maui, Hawaii, formed in 2009.

The band released their first album, entitled Legs Of Our Own, on August 6, 2011.[2]

In October 2010, The Throwdowns were nominated for two Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hawaiian Grammy's). The nominations were both for the "Don't Slow Down" EP: "ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR (Best performance of music in a rock style)" and "DESIGN (Best designed and created album package)".[3][4]

The band's style has been compared to The Clash, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, No Doubt, and PJ Harvey.[5]
