Conscious, soulful, uplifting, even healing—that’s how fans of Root Shock have described the band’s infectious sound and energy. With a reputation like that, it’s unsurprising that this group is indebted to reggae, a class of music forever married to love, humanity, social change, and an almost tangible sense of sunlight.
Carlos Jones & The Plus Band
Carlos Jones is to Cleveland reggae what Jim Brown is to Cleveland running backs: the undisputed champ. There is something about him that is so real. Carlos Jones is the real deal. They say music can bring unity and peace. Jones and his band write the soundtrack for that concept.
Blending the grounding sounds of classic roots with messages for modern times, Mosaic Foundation is forward thinking, internationally influenced reggae. Based in the Finger Lakes region of New York with members hailing from Ghana, Hong Kong and Jamaica, the band’s diverse lineup speaks truth to the fact that “Unity is Strength.”
Hailing from Akwesasne Mohawk Nation, 2-time Nammy award winning December Wind carries messages of peace, healing, traditional values that are divinely inspired through their “folk with feathers” genre that has touched people’s hearts around the world. December Wind and Keith Secola will rock out together this weekend!
Kitestring is a four-piece band featuring all-original music with influences from rootsy Americana, Blues, and Soul. The band is based in Ithaca, NY and centers around the unique talent of singer-songwriter Josh Ross whose lyrics explore personal experiences of love, loss, and redemption to weave meaningful messages that speak to the heart of listeners.
