I.R.E., Intello Rhythm Eclectic, is a 7-piece reggae & funk-flavored rock band from Atlanta, whose stage energy and stimulating songwriting offer a positive message that is both easy to listen to and thought-provoking. With a loyal fan base, two studio albums, and a string of successful shows and festivals throughout the Southeast since 2008, I.R.E.‘s style continues to attract all ages, genders, and tastes with a signature sound-and-visual art performance that’s "pure poetry in motion” (Giuseppe Maestro Colato, Dirty South TV).
Conjured in the summer suns of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, LaGoons breathe a breeze of fresh air into the world of jam music. Step into a show and you'll immediately hear their unique, goony sound. Deriving influences from Blues/Funk/Reggae and the Unknown, LaGoons are committed to the live concert experience. With each show the goal is to reach the highest level of energy possible, leaving plenty of room for improvisation and the listener wanting more.
Founded in Tuscaloosa in 2013, LaGoons have recently nestled into their new home of Atlanta, Georgia. The band is working hard to spread their sound throughout the Southeast, breaking into North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, along with various parts of Georgia and Alabama with no plans of slowing down. They are currently recording their debut album, set for an April 2017 release.
LaGoons are - Tommy Faust (Guitar, Vox) Clarke Chadwell (Bass, Vox) Dallas Dawson (Drums, Percussion) John Hooper (Keys, Organ) Quinn Mason (Alto Saxophone)
The band began with Franklin Engram and Aaron Lee, together with other musicians. This incarnation of the band played several of Athens Georgia's finest venues including the Georgia Theatre and the 40 Watt Club. Brian "The Bombadier" Steele joined the band in college and changed the sound into a tighter and more solid unit.
