Colorful, bright, and spirited, Common Foundation is a young group of some really talented individuals. They play a blend of reggae, rocksteady and uptempo ska, all outfitted with a big band style horn section. They'll move from soulful instrumentals with jazz influenced solos, to sing along melodies in three part harmony. Always enjoying their performance, and always bringing a smile, Common Foundation is a new Asheville band worth checking out.

Marrietta's Palm is a Reggae/Rock band comprised of four musicians with diverse styles and backgrounds. Although, they have united under the reggae/rock genres, you will also find hints of blues and jazz accompanied with psychedelic nuances. The band consists of Hunter Light (Guitar/Vocals), Eric Clark (Guitar/Vocals), Be Handy (Bass/Vocals), and Wyman Balcom (Drums). Marrietta's Palm stretches the boundaries of reggae and rock by incorporating the resounding echos and ambiance of what most consider dub. This four piece will rock the house, and keep the good vibes flowing with dubby reggae dance grooves. We come to jam, and bring the party to the people!
