SOJA - Poetry in Motion 2018 Tour
"Few observers of global affairs can translate their thoughts into well-crafted songs offering profound yet poetic statements fueled by righteous rage and delivered with rock star bravura, qualities that distinguish SOJA from their contemporaries and have put them at the forefront of the proliferating American reggae movement. The band's multi-layered sonic tapestry, as strikingly complex as Hemphill's lyrics, combine varying elements of rock, country, folk, hip-hop, and jazz influences with occasional Latin, hardcore and Washington D.C.'s go-go flourishes into a distinctive reggae identity that's wholly appreciated through repeated listening and provides a compelling dynamism to their live performances."
RDGLDGRN (pronounced Red Gold Green) is an American band based out of Reston, Virginia (a suburb of Washington, DC) that was formed in 2011.
Red (Marcus Parham) - Guitar
Gold (Andrei Busuioceanu) - Bass
Green (Pierre Desrosiers) - Vocals
Propaganjah is bringing pulse thumping, high energy, melodic, one drop reggae music back to the reggae world. Influenced by the greatest of the greats, their strong Caribbean and R&B roots can be heard in every song. The percussive drive of this band will make anyone jump out of their seats to join the party. Tantalizing bass lines will keep your head bobbing to the riddim all night long. Emphasis on positivity can be felt in the lyrics and vocalizations of their music. Propaganjah's music is meant for the lovers of life and for anyone that needs/wants some positivity in their lives.
Propaganjah was formed in Central Florida, in early 2016, by lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Rob "Rob Marley" Burr Jr. and percussionist/songwriter/composer Garrett "Ginjah" Riggio. They both share influences of reggae greats, such as Tribal Seeds, Soja, Sublime, Dirty Heads, Steel Pulse, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and a ton of other bands in the realm. Rob's Caribbean influences come from his father's St. Croix/Virgin Island's roots. Ginjah brings some SoCal inspiration and positive vibes from his tenure in San Diego, as well as his work with his charity the Red Road Foundation. The duo linked up with Marlin Sessler (bass), adding his flavorful bass licks, in March of 2016, to form the sound that has been driving the band ever since. Aaron Bergman(Alto Sax) and Jose Piniero(Tenor Sax) hold down the horn section with hooks that resonate through your soul and keep you humming the melody through every song! Lawayne Gabriel(Keyboard) brings his unique influence and style that stimulates your mind with a wide variety of tones that dive right into the forefront of your mind.
Propaganjah has played with numerous regional reggaeand ska acts already; such as, The Wailers, Inner Circle, Less Than Jake, Third World, Ballyhoo!, Resinated, Of Good Nature, Yamadeo, and the Duppies. There is no venue too big or too small for this band. They will bring the party to any atmosphere and keep you on your feet!! Do your ears and feet a favor and stimulate them with the soul and sound of true reggae music, provided by yours truly, Propaganjah.
