Roots of a Rebellion
Roots of a Rebellion [ROAR] hail from Nashville, TN and bolster Reggae-Rock-Dub music for the soul. In between touring, ROAR released their debut, full-length album "Heartifact" on August 8, 2014</p>
<p>Having shared the stage with The Wailers, Rebelution, NEEDTOBREATHE, Slightly Stoopid, moe, Trombone Shorty, North Mississippi Allstars, SOJA, and countless others, Roots of a Rebellion is proud to represent another side of Music City, USA.<br />
Subterranean is Chuckie Love on bass formerly from the Werks, Danny Sauers on Sax formerly from Heavy Weather and Romeo Champagne, Rob Brockman on Drums formerly from The Maji and Magic Jackson, and Chris Coalt on guitar formerly from Romeo Champagne. We joined forces to start a Wed. night jam @ our favorite spot J-Alans. From the first note it was clear this is a band with a capital B. Since then the band has spread like wild fire into Columbus, Cincy, Dayton and has made its way on to the Festival scene playing The Werk Out, Snugglefest, Family Roots, May Daze, Mad Tea Party and many others. The Subterranean House Band is just getting started and has a ton of potential to continue to grow and spread the love.
Cincinnati, Ohio’s Rockstead is living proof that spreading good vibes and positivity, while also having a hellacious work ethic, will get you to where you want to be in life, both physically and spiritually. After a breakout 2015 that included multiple music festivals and concerts at venues across Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois, - and having already completed two albums in that time span - Rockstead shows no signs of slowing their mission of bringing people together through music. Using this message, Rockstead combines a unique mix of reggae, rock, and punk derived from multitude of influences ranging from 311 to Sublime all the way to The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Foo Fighters.
The Magic Lightnin' Boys
If nothing else, you have to give props to the The Magic Lightnin' Boys for one thing; they have been able to make a nod to the past sound fresh and modern. Their combination of hard rock and blues should sound similar to other bands who have tried (and failed) to make this sound appealing to a generation who has heard it all, but it doesn't. Not only does it retain a keen sense of identity at all times, it also serves as the perfect springboard for the new foursome out of Ohio. The songwriting matches that of a veteran band that have been playing together for years, and coupled with vocalist Casey Gomez's passionate wails, it won't be hard for them to land a strong fanbase. The funky presence of the bass throughout the entire release meshes perfectly with the organic production, especially on highlight track "Broken Dream". Gomez emotes perfectly while reminiscing about a time that showed nothing but promise. The track takes on a slow-burning pace that explodes outward in a maelstrom of needle-sharp solos and frantic drumming at the end, and this shows the real strength of the band in general. The instruments are played in tandem, never overshadowing each other; it creates a dynamic listen that can shift from soulful and heartfelt to aggressive and boisterous. "Devil's Lettuce" swings from a low-key, subdued soul ditty to a high-energy blues jam several times throughout the track quite naturally.<br />
