Jon Wayne And The Pain
Jon Wayne And The Pain
Midwest reggae rockers Jon Wayne and The Pain have been carving a sizable niche in the reggae-rock genre. Their sophomore release “Follow Through” builds upon the success of the group’s self-titled debut album, once again showcasing their unique mix of reggae, rock, and dub that fans can’t get enough of. Jon, Teeto and Chuckie are the ultimate coast-to-coast road warriors having played an average of 20 shows per month for the last 3 years. Their live shows are a powerful display of the trio’s “Reggae-Tronic Dub”. The band creates a unique psychedelic Reggae sound by blending Reggae-Rock, Roots, Pop, and Ska with evolving bass heavy tangents of electronic dub.

The new Jon Wayne and The Pain

“If your looking for an album that blends Sublime, Long Beach Dub Allstars, and Slightly Stoopid rolled into one then look no further.”
Wake Up And Live
Wake Up And Live
Denver guitarist and vocalist Dave Halchak decided to put together a group of musicians to celebrate the music of Bob Marley, and pay tribute to the songs by creating some exciting jams, and throwing one fine party. The result was a show in February of 2013 on Marley's Birthday. The chemistry of this newfound group in rehearsal plus the success of the show inspired this new concept for a tribute band: Wake Up & Live.

Wake Up & Live pushes the boundaries of your normal "tribute" band by taking the music of Bob Marley into uncharted improvisational moments. This and the stellar arrangements create a unique and powerful twist on the Marley catalog. After just a year, the Denver based band has already made their mark on the premier stages of Colorado.

Check them out on Facebook, ReverbNation, Soundcloud or LIVE!
The band features Dave Halchak on guitar and lead vocals, David Lott on lead guitar, Andrew Martin on keyboards, Nick Souder on drums, Neil Ross Hebbert on bass, LaSha Waldroup & Aubrie Hamrick on vocals. There are sometimes featured percussionists, horn players and additional sounds as well so be sure to check them out in your town soon!
Rastasaurus
Rastasaurus
Rastasaurus was uncovered in the concrete jungles of Denver, Colorado, where they’ve been building an enthusiastic following around their new reggae sound. Centered around the prolific songwriting of Justus Lacewell (vocals, guitar), Rastasaurus also includes lifelong musical pals and identical twin brothers Eric (lead guitar) and Mark Ciccone (bass). The thick, psychedelic grooves of Ryan Kerr (keyboards) and the smooth, funky rhythms of Nick Souder (drums) round out the quintet.

With their original songs featuring an infusion of reggae with elements of funk, rock and roll, improvised jamming and dub, Rastasaurus is constantly exploring and expanding its own unique blend of American reggae.
