Roots Of Creation
Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam and reggae-rock favorites like Camp Bisco, Gathering of The Vibes, California Roots, Jungle Jam and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Roots of Creation (RoC) offers up a high-energy, infectious live music experience. Their mix of reggae riddims, conscious lyrics, spirited horn lines, and electronic beats makes crowds move and has their loyal underground fan base (RoC Family) and street team (Universal Soldiers) travelling the distance to pack venues from coast-to-coast.
Roots of Creation’s most recent release, Livin Free (2016), debuted No. 1 on both the Billboard Reggae and the Relix/Jambands.com Radio charts. Livin Free is a triple record that includes three versions of each song--studio, dub, and acoustic that features guest performances by Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Marshall “Ras MG” Goodman (Sublime, Long Beach Dub Allstars), the Rubblebucket horn section, Billy Kottage (Reel Big Fish), Grammy-nominated Pato Banton (Sting, UB40), and others. Additionally, the album welcomes guest production by Yeti Beats (Rebelution, Slightly Stoopid).
Elephants Dancing is a 7-piece reggae/rock band from Wilkes Barre, PA, driven by the chill, beach vibe and powerful roots of reggae. The group delivers an island feel, filled with heavy grooves, fun melodies, syncopation, and clever raps. Elephants Dancing was created by singer-songwriters Michael Iorio (Lead Vocals/Bass) and Danny Sales (Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), who were childhood friends. After experiencing several lineup changes since the bands inception in the summer of 2015, the full and unique sound that the band possesses is fulfilled through the versatility and spunk of its members, Ross LeSoine (Tenor Sax/Percussion), Miles Fagley-Orfanella (Trumpet/Percussion), Karl Rucker (Lead Guitar), Samantha Carwell (Keyboard), and Jerry Coyle (Drums). The elephants groove to roots reggae, island hip-hop, and beach rock, but the influences go much farther. Both writers are influenced by a wide variety of genres including: pop-punk, metal, rap, math-rock, and classical.
