Watch & Listen
With more than a decade of making music together, the members of Slightly Stoopid have perfected one of the rarest and most valuable skills a band can develop: the art of the stealth groove, that knack for quietly, almost innocently, sliding into a composition, and utterly lassoing anyone within earshot by mid-song. That's where the band has come to reside, musically: deep in the pocket, that ever-elusive, funky trench where a band can entrance an audience, hypnotize it and hold on to it until the set or CD is finished. Built on a bedrock of nasty, oceanic slabs of dubby bass, meditative vocal harmonies, rock-steady guitar licks and tightly syncopated percussive rhythms, Slightly Stoopid illustrate a case study in underground success, steeped in years of hard touring, an improvisational business model, and a creative process that continues to unwind and push the envelope of a new jam-based genre the band helped to create.
Slightly Stoopid's dual front-men Miles Doughty (Guitar, Bass, Vocals) and Kyle McDonald (Guitar, Bass, Vocals), created their own label, Stoopid Records, in the early 2000's to avoid signing a record deal and keep their DIY work ethic and freedom away from music industry politics. The west coast sound pioneers later added musicians Ryan 'RyMo' Moran (Drums) and Oguer 'OG' Ocon (Congas, Percussion, Harp, Vocals) from the B Side Players, as well as C-Money (Trumpet, Keyboard) and Dela (Saxophone) from John Browns Body; solidifying their on stage line up. Slightly Stoopid has built a large n' loyal fan base, and has soared to one of the most successful independent artists of this decade. The buzz surrounding the group continues to increase with each successive release; their album catalog sales have topped the 700,000 mark and the group continues to fill the most prestigious concert venues around the world, and continues to create a legion of "stoopidheads" in the process!
From San Diego, California, award-winning reggae group Tribal Seeds have
become known for their spiritually driven, refreshing rock vibe they have infused
with the roots style of reggae music. Originally started by two brothers, Steven
Rene Jacobo [lyrics, lead vocals, rhythm guitar] and Tony-Ray Jacobo [producer,
keyboard player], Tribal Seeds now boats six members, including: Tony Navarro
[lead guitar], Carlos Verdugo [drums], Jose Rodriguez [keys, percussion], and
Victor Navarro [bass].
Tribal Seeds' unmatched musical talent and authentic sound has brought them to
the forefront of the reggae rock genre, as their art form has reached people of all
ages across the United States, and worldwide. The band's self titled debut
album, "Tribal Seeds" was released in 2008, and their second album "The
Harvest" was released in June of 2009. iTunes named both albums the "Best
Of" in the Reggae genre, for their respected years. Their debut album helped
garner them the "Best World Music" title at the San Diego Music Awards in
2008, and "The Harvest," which contained fourteen new and original songs,
debuted at the number 5 spot on the Billboard Reggae Charts. The tracks,
written and produced by Tribal Seeds, were recorded and mixed by Alan
Sanderson at Signature Sound Studios in San Diego, and mastered by
Erik Lobson at Universal Mastering.
On July 19, 2011, Tribal Seeds gave listeners a brand new EP entitled
"Soundwaves," which peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Reggae Charts.
The band notes that the album was inspired by their life experiences, being on
tour, and their desire to inspire youth to raise their voices and seek a higher

Roots Of A Rebellion
In the very house that once belonged to Hank Williams Sr, a new musical spirit has risen up with an entirely new sound. Roots of a Rebellion’s unique and diverse music has recently began to demand a shift of attention in Nashville, a town practically defined by country music. As an emerging reggae rock band, they have quickly proven themselves by capturing the hearts and ears of fans everywhere. They have been fortunate enough to share the stage with such notable acts as The Wailers, Iration, Zach Deputy, Passafire, The Movement, Mike Pinto and Ashes of Babylon.
Roots of a Rebellion’s music offers elements of reggae, rock, dub and soul while putting emphasis on tight horn sections, catchy melodies, and conscious lyrics. This wholeheartedly authentic and powerful combination creates a sound that is both physically and mentally captivating. Hailing from various corners of the United States, each member brings past musical experiences and passions to this project attempting to break down musical barriers. ROAR members include Austin Smith, Alec Newnam, Troy Wiggins, Marco Martinez, Jeremyck Smith, Justin Smith and Paul Violante.
While continuing to grow and be blessed as a band, they desire to put just as much emphasis on community and global unity as they do the music. While they see their music as a tool for change, they also can be found off the stage playing their part to better our world. ROAR will continue marching on representing this truth and love through music.
Be on the look out for future R.O.A.R shows coming through your town!!
