Policulture is the Original Mountain Reggae band from Boulder, CO. Policulture emanates heavy drum and bass with a roots rhythm, melodic horn section, and conscious lyrics. Forming in 2010 the band developed a contemporary reggae sound that is shaped by their upbringing and surrounding environment. With an understanding that music undoubtedly has the power to change the world, Policulture advocates a perspective of positivity and achievability in their music. Inspired by the tradition of roots reggae music, along with the current movement of modern roots reggae, the band is honored to have shared the stage with international touring acts including; The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, SOJA, Rebelution, John Brown’s Body and many more.
Coming off of a sustainable album release campaign, the band is psyched to announce the release of their upcoming album, Mountains to Cross. With songs about perseverance, Policulture thrives from the excitement of creating powerful music with intricate melodies, unique improvisation, energetic grooves, and liberating messages.
The Elegant Plums
From starting out as just wee little seedlings in the Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. music scene, The Elegant Plums have sprouted and grown and are now calling Denver, Colorado home. The Plums are a 5-piece band with influences ranging from rock, to blues, to funk, to jazz, to bluegrass and so much more. They have been fortunate enough to play at venues such as the 9:30 Club, Gypsy Sally's, The Rock & Roll Hotel, Jammin Java', the Oriental Theater (Denver), and many more. The Plums are known for their energetic live performances with surprises at every turn that will make you keep your head, and hips, on a swivel. From their original songwriting, to fun take on covers, and live shows that leave you wanting more, The Elegant Plums are a fruit with a juice worth the squeeze...
Dub Haiku may be from the small mountain town of Lyons, Colorado, but their music brings such pure reggae vibes you'd think you were chilling on a warm beach by the ocean. The 5 piece group spins their own version of the classic genre, bringing elements of dub, hip hop, and modern jam. The band formed in 2017 and quickly dropped a self-released EP, recorded just months after their lineup began to solidify. The four track EP demonstrates their original songwriting skills, and is just a glimpse of what the future holds for these crusaders of modern reggae. Dub Haiku has begun playing a steady schedule of local shows around the Colorado cities of Boulder and Denver, gaining new fans and venue support with their raw and entertaining shows, in support of such acts as Policulture, The Alcapones, and Highway 50, to name a few.
The band consists of original members Garrison Schulte on keyboards, melodica & vocals and Alex Kohler on drums. Multi-instrumentalist and producer Garrett Long later joined the group on guitar & vocals, along with Alex "One Take" Bullen on bass guitar. Most recently, the addition of percussionist Ricardo Ribeiro has contributed significant depth to the group's sound.
