JABB Pro Presents Rhythm City Tours of LA "Roots of Reggae"
JABB Pro presents Rhythm City Tours of LA Roots of Reggae! A vibe filled night of great reggae music featuring The Expanders.
The Expanders are dubbed the hardest working reggae band in Southern California. Having recently returned from a national tour, The Expanders are known for their vintage "rockers" style reggae, played in the tradition of classic 1970's Jamaican groups like The Ethiopians, Culture, The Mighty Diamonds, etc. Their music emphasizes three-part vocal harmonies and strong song writing. In addition to performing their own original material and rare Jamaican scorchers, since 2006 The Expanders have been the backing band of choice for legendary Jamaican singers when they come to California to perform, having backed such classic artists as Alton Ellis, The Maytones, The Ethiopians, The Wailing Souls, and many more. For two years in a row they were featured at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in Mendocino County, where their performances were praised in "The Beat" magazine as having recreated "the old classic Kingston rocksteady sound to a T". They have been frequent guests on SoCal radio shows such as "Reggae Central w/ Chuck Foster" (90.7 fm) and "The Reggae Show w/ Junor Francis" (88.9 fm). In addition to playing in The Expanders, several members of the band also play in Hepcat, The Lions, Chris Murray Combo, See Spot and Boogaloo Assassins.
Arise Roots has evolved into one of the most sought after reggae bands around. Arise Roots was formed in 2010 with the passion to create a new, unique roots-reggae band. Rising up from the streets of Los Angeles, the band had one goal: create a fresh reggae sound with a modern feel that appeals to all walks of life without compromising the true feel of roots reggae. As today's reggae music scene has branched out into multiple sub-genres, Southern California's Arise Roots has helped keep the ever-evolving sound of reggae music grounded with their fresh take on ROOTS music. The true essence of their music is caught in their live performances, so make sure to keep an eye out for Arise Roots coming to a city near you.
