The Green — Formed in 2009 on Oahu, Hawaii, The Green “fuses late 1970s-era dub-heavy roots reggae with strands of contemporary rock/pop/R&B and sporadic indigenous Hawaiian musical and lyrical references” (Billboard). Accolades include: Nominated in three categories in the International Reggae And World Music Awards (2012 and 2013), Debut album named iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year (2010), Sophomore album “Ways and Means” spent four-weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Reggae Chart in 2011.
John Brown’s Body — John Brown’s Body formed (in Boston in the mid-1990s) at a time when there wasn’t what you’d call a U.S. reggae scene. JBB was one of a handful of groups that began touring nationally and created distinctly American reggae, steeped in traditional vibes, but incorporating elements from other genres.
Los Rakas — Los Rakas is comprised of cousins Raka Rich and Raka Dun, pioneering Panamanians by way of the Bay Area on the frontier of a new Latin urban sound. Founded in 2005, known for their fresh mix of hip-hop, plena, reggae and dancehall music with both Spanish and English lyricism, Los Rakas represent the cutting edge of Pan-American flows.
Stick Figure — A unique style of music that combines a creative blend of upbeat roots reggae with the reverberating echoes of dub, comes a man with no limit for his musical abilities. Stick Figure’s music is written, recorded, and produced by Scott Woodruff, originally an East coast native from Duxbury, Mass.
Wheeland Brothers — The Wheeland Brothers describe their music as acoustic beach rock and ukulele hip hop reggae. Our songs cover a full spread of punk reggae, acoustic hip-hop, and ukulele bonfire jams and hit all sides of the Southern Californian beach culture flavor.
DJ Trichrome — Legendary 311 Opener from Madison, Wis.
Brotherhood Soundsystem from Santa Fe
DJ Breakaway from Albuquerque
DJ Aspect — Bay Area, Calif.
