Billboard and radio chart topping, award-winning, international reggae-rock sensation Roots of Creation, live at The HighLifeStyle Show Boxborough, MA October 7-9, 2022. A Gathering of HIGHLY FUNCTIONAL PEOPLE Brands, Dispensaries, Growers, Distributors, Artists, Innovators, and Influencers, Consumers of the High Life, Style, Music, Arts, and Culture!
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) traveling the distance to pack venues from coast to coast.
“Reggae -Funk – Rock that erupts on stage, severing artist-audience barriers while summoning fans to join them in an awakening.”
– Devin Madden – Relix Magazine
Roots of Creation’s most recent release, Livin Free (2016), debuted at 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 many more. Additionally, the album welcomes guest production by Yeti Beats (Rebelution, Slightly Stoopid).
“America’s contribution to Reggae music: the Jam-Reggae hybrid.”
– Brent Hagerman, Exclaim
Now RoC has taken on a unique new project: Grateful Dub. Combining their longtime love for reggae-dub style music and the Grateful Dead, RoC reworked some of the world’s favorite Dead tunes into a new studio album. RoC had the pleasure of working in the studio with the legendary 5-time Grammy winner Errol Brown who was Bob Marley’s engineer and now Rebelution’s live sound engineer for this project. Grateful Dub is also being performed live in its entirety at festivals, theatres, and clubs around the country, and features rotating special guests including Melvin Seals (JGB), Scott Guberman (Phil Lesh) full horn sections, and others. Grateful Dub captures the spirit and magic of the Grateful Dead while laying it down in reggae-dub style.
