Fear Nuttin Band – “Jah First”
Fear Nuttin Band
“Jah First” Background:
Shortly after their performance at the 2015 California Roots Music and Arts Festival this past Memorial Day, Fear Nuttin Band contacted The Pier regarding their new single “Jah First”. Vocalist Prowla explained that “The drums were recorded at Nada studios in 2014. The rest of the song was recorded and mixed in April and May of 2015 by (vocalist) Chris Regan at his Far Eye House Studio. It was mastered by Mike Caplan at Lion and Fox Studio while we were on the ‘Road to Cali Roots’”.

As for the song itself and what Jah First represents, Prowla continues on by saying that The title says it all; put the Creator first and good things will happen for you. Speaking from experience.
Started from my creation of a way to greet people and remind them at the same time to keep positive mind and a clean conscience.”

Fear Nuttin Band will soon release a new album following this single titled Immigrant. Prowla describes “Jah First” as an appetizer for whats to come with a new record. Currently, Fear Nuttin Band has 2 total albums with 2011’s Move Positive and 2012’s Vibes Love Revolution. Immigrant will mark the bands 3rd full length album and first in close to 3 years.

Fear Nuttin Band Background:
Fear Nuttin Band is an all original reggae/rock style band that is driven to write honest and real music. Comprised of 3 members from Jamaica and 3 from the United States, FNB has developed a sound that combines elements of Reggae, Rock, Hip Hop, Hardcore, Dancehall and Metal drawing on their cultural diversity to make the mix true and real.

FNB wouldn’t let the music industry dictate their fate so they went back into the studio on their own and recorded “Move Positive” which debuted at #5 on Itunes Reggae chart and featured 2 songs co written and produced by SOJA’s Jacob Hemphill, “Rebel” and “Standing by The Wall”. Move Positive also brought forth a guest appearance collaboration with Reggae legend Bushman on “Informer”

On election day Nov 6th 2012 FNB released their latest album “Vibes Love Revolution” which debuted at #2 on Itunes Reggae Charts and reached #8 on Billboard’s Reggae chart in between heavy hitters SOJA and Sean Paul. VLR has guest appearances by Stephen Newland from Rootz Underground, Hellman and Rafa from SOJA, Jordan Miller formerly from The Movement, and Germany’s rising reggae star Sara Lugo.

The band has been touring through the East and West Coasts and has made featured appearances at California Roots and other festivals. They have shared the stage or toured with like SOJA, Toots and the Maytals, Warped Tour, Streetlight Manifesto, Kanye West, Sublime with Rome, Pepper, Rebelution, Reel Big Fish, Steel Pulse and many others.

Live: Fishbone at Cali-Roots 2015 (5-24-15)

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on Live: Fishbone at Cali-Roots 2015 (5-24-15)

FishboneLive_CaliRoots

Date: Sunday, May 24th 2015 (7:00 – 7:45pm at The Original Stage)
Line Up: Fisbhone
Venue: California Roots Music and Arts Festival. Monterey County Fairgrounds. Monterey, CA

Live: Fishbone @ Cali-Roots (5-24-15)

Fishbone performed near the end of the last day of day 3 at California Roots Music and Arts Festival. Fans of all ages and back grounds gathered in front of the Original Stage, the most intimate of the three stages at the festival, to witness the legendary Los Angeles natives Fishbone perform. People filled in the stage area with the rowdier towards the front, and the more mellow towards the back.

On the stage to the left, renowned mouth-painter Kirk O’Hara began working on his outline of a side profile of a mohawked punk rocker yelling. O’Hara was born with arthrogryposis that limits the movement in his arms and legs, but his determination prevailed and was able to develop techniques using only his mouth to paint his beautiful and moving pieces of art. Combine that with his love and inspiration for music, and one can see why he eared the right to share the stage with Fishbone. O’Hara’s presence on stage only adds to the creative energy that made that Sunday evening unique to the rest of the weekend.
FishboneLive_CaliRoots2
At last, front-man Angelo C. Moore, AKA, Dr. Madd Vibe, began the set by doing a spoken word poem over the intro to “Party at Ground Zero” with the poem detailing an apocalyptic scenario which led nicely into the subject of the song.

Showing more of Fishbone’s classic sense of humor, a short but informative demonstration on how crowd surfing works, Moore asked the audience for their “full support” as horn-player Jay Armant, AKA Flyin’ Jay showed the crowd how to physically support someone who decides to crowd surf and how to be a crowed surfer yourself; all of which took place over the song “Ma and Pa”.

Fishbone when into full funk mode and covered a few verses of Chuck Brown the Soul Searchers classic “Bustin’ Lose” that lead into the song “Cholly”, leading the audience to continue their strange, but beautiful dancing frenzy. Fishbone slowed it down with soulful performances of “The Suffering” and “Unstuck”. After which, Moore noted the lack of sunshine that day and insured the audience that there was still sun out by kicking things into overdrive with “Everyday Sunshine,” just as the folks in the in circle-pit were starting to catch their breaths.

Ending things on a high note, Fishbone ended their set by playing the crowd pleasing classic “Alcoholic” during which guitarist Rocky George did a solo playing a riff from his former band’s Suicidal Tendencies song “Institutionalized” showing a bit of punk rock history for those in the know.

After what seemed like only a blink of an eye, Fishbone’s set was over. O’Hara’s painting now seemed near completion and had far more depth than earlier, displaying more emotions and colors. In the end Fishbone did what they do best, playing a mixture of Funk, Ska, Reggae and punk that had created fans, inspired other musicians and artists for over the last 30 years.

The Pier: Artist Set-Lists at Cali-Roots 2015

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on The Pier: Artist Set-Lists at Cali-Roots 2015

CaliRoots

Cali-Roots 2015 Recap:

The 6th Annual California Roots Festival has come and gone leaving us with memories shared with friends, family and strangers around the sound-track of some great music. Jeff Monser and Dan Sheehan have worked hard over the years to build this festival up into a movement that fans can call home when such an event takes place.

3 stages over 3 days with 40 bands performing with nothing more than, at most, a 15minute overlap in sets. This means that fans had the opportunity to see every single band if they wanted to. Only a handful of sets overlapped 10-15 minutes into the others, but nothing that would keep you from missing an entire set because you were watching someone else.

Security did an outstanding job of being cool and patient with the fans. They were tossing beach-balls back into the crowd, joking and smiling with everyone, representing a position of guidance vs security or authority. The two biggest complaints we heard regarding the festival was the lack of reliable internet access and that fans weren’t able to purchase alcohol, unless you were in VIP or above…

First, I was told that more than 12,000 people were in attendance. That’s a lot of people on their smart-phones! Working in media, such as ourselves, we can be divas about access if we know it exists only because we want to publish what’s taking place as soon as we can if there’s opportunity to do so. The other part to that was there were vendors who brought credit-card machines that were unable to connect to the internet to accept purchases, but there were plenty of ATM’s around, but it’s hard to bite the bullet on that $4.95 fee each time. So we can sympathize with the internet frustration if you work in media or if you purchased a booth re-selling merchandise, but otherwise, is this really worth complaining about? If you’re a fan, post the selfie later!

As for the alcohol, I applaud Cali-Roots for not offering that as an option outside of VIP. I don’t know if that decision comes from the venue, the city or just a conscious decision Dan and Jeff made, but you sure do limit the amount of drunken episodes that can escalate quicker with the consumption of liquor over beer. Plus, their new Hoppy Roots beer was quite tasty!

Our hat’s off to an amazing staff that made this festival as enjoyable as possible. From Amy Dan Sheehan and Jeff Monser to their staff of Ryan Romana and Alex Anderson with Press Junkie who enabled The Pier with most of the press and interviews at Cali-Roots. Dana Greer who manages the social media and does an outstanding job connecting Cali-Roots with the world including us fans and media affiliates. Ernie Cortazar III was a huge resource to those of us camping on site and Joe Wilson with Bulldog Media with all the amazing footage that was filmed and captured. We got to meet the infamous Kenny Burgess who did an incredible job with the Walk Through History booth and while the names don’t come close to stopping there, we extend our gratitude to those we didn’t directly connect with for their time and efforts.

These names are important because they all had a hand in making this event more than just a festival, but a place we can call home… A home where we vent about the internet and complain that there’s no liquor in the house, yet it’s a house we hate to leave.

Set-Lists at Cali-Roots 2015

Of the 40 acts that performed at Cali-Roots, The Pier was able to retrieve 37 Set-Lists. Unfortunately, we were unable to receive set-lists from The Roots, G. Love and Animo. If any of you fans have their sets recorded, send them over and we’ll add it below. The set-lists are in order of the festival based on the day and set-time.

There were a ton of guest appearances all over the weekend so if you see any that you think we should add, drop it in a comment and we’ll update it. Scroll below to see which bands played which songs and if your favorite band is below, perhaps make a playlist that mirrors their set-list!

Some stand-outs that we saw was SOJA playing “Thunderstorms” which they’ve never really played live and after they played it, they said they’d never play it again! That was before they brought J Boog on stage to perform his song “Let’s Do It Again”. Beebs and Her Money Makers covered TLC‘s “Waterfalls” a long with Bruno Mars “Uptown Funk”. Cypress Hill played all their classic hits while Iration rocked their new jam “Reelin’”. Leilani Wolfgramm covered Nirvana‘s “Come As You Are” while Slightly Stoopid, Fortunate Youth and Tribal Seeds piled on the guest features.

Following the festival and of the 40 bands that performed, my personal top 3 stand-outs from the weekend were East-London’s The Skints New Zealand’s Blue King Brown and Orlando, Florida’s Beebs and Her Money Makers. I was familiar with all three before the festival, but this was the first time I had the opportunity to see them live and their live sets blew me away. Let us know in the comments your Top 3 from the festival.

Thank you again Cali-Roots…

Buffett was Workin’ and Playin’ in Houston!

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off on Buffett was Workin’ and Playin’ in Houston!

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band perform last night at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, TX. It was the first large venue show for the 2015 Workin’ n’ Playin’ Tour.

The set list from the show is now available. Buffett and the band played 28 songs including “Ragtop Day”, “The Great Filling Station Holdup”, “Off To See The Lizard”, “Stars On The Water”, “If I Had A Boat”, “Pascagoula Run”, “Jolly Mon Sing”, “Last Man Standing”, “Island”, and “Window on the World”.

The show included the debut of a new song that Buffett and Mac McAnally wrote called “Workin’ n’ Playin’”. Buffett ended the show with the song “Defying Gravity”.

Robert Greenidge performed an instrumental medley on the steel pan drums that included “King of Somewhere Hot”, “Hot Hot Hot”, and “Lage Nom Ai”.

The Houston Chronicle has a review of the show: “Surf’s up, way up, at Jimmy Buffett concert

Jimmy Buffett widened his audience Thursday night at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Not horizontally past the back fence of the lawn. Vertically into space.

Buffett’s latest stop on his “Workin’ and Playin’ 2015″ tour was beamed to the International Space Station, where U.S. astronaut and admitted Parrothead Terry Virts has been spending the past six months doing experiments and racking up frequent flier miles.

Virts appeared on a big screen behind Buffett during the show — urging concert fans to get involved in science and read up on the U.S. space program.

Buffett wore a plain yellow T-shirt, lavender wristbands and purple shorts. No shoes, no socks. Percentage of his tour’s production budget spent on wardrobe – $17.95.

This week’s historic flood spared the Pavilion. Buffett walked onstage and shouted, “The land is dry, let’s have a party!”

Live: Fortunate Youth at Cali-Roots (5-24-15)

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on Live: Fortunate Youth at Cali-Roots (5-24-15)

FY_Live_CaliRoots3

Date: Sunday, May 24th 2015 (12:00 – 1:00pm in The Bowl)
Line Up: Fortunate Youth
Venue: California Roots Music and Arts Festival. Monterey County Fairgrounds. Monterey, CA

Live: Fortunate Youth @ Cali-Roots (5-24-15)

Opening up Cali Roots’ Bowl Stage on the final day of the festival was the six-piece reggae band Fortunate Youth. Starting in fine fashion, Fortunate Youth brought on a few of their frequent collaborators to play a set filled with tracks off their new album Don’t Think Twice and popular songs from previous releases.

Among the cast of characters sharing the stage with Fortunate Youth on Sunday were Cas Haley, Hirie, Gonzo, Caleb from The Green, and Micah Brown from Iration. Haley and Hirie helped perform “Sweet Sensi” off of Fortunate Youth’s 2013 album, It’s All A Jam.

Gonzo, from Tribal Seeds fame and an up-and-coming solo artist in his own right, came on for “Sweet Love.” Caleb from The Green and Micah Brown from Iration closed out the show with a participatory rendition FY_Live_CaliRoots4of “Peace Love Unity.”

Coming to this festival has become tradition for Fortunate Youth. The band tries to make it out to Cali Roots every year to go camping and see some of their favorite artists. An experience that percussionist Travi Bongos confesses is just as much about the people as it is the music.

“I had a friend come up to me with their daughter telling me ‘remember when you were holding her in your hands?’ And now she is out there running around on the grass. I almost started crying, it really is just a blessing to be here.”

There was a point in the band’s early years where the guys had to figure out what they wanted out of their musical careers. The chops were there, the band just needed the exposure that comes with heavy touring if they wanted to reach their potential. It was back in 2011 when Fortunate Youth and their manager Jared Segawa ambitiously decided to book as many shows as they could.

“We had to make a decision whether we should jump off the cliff and go touring or stay local and do a couple shows here and there. We decided to jump off the cliff and go do it. We ended up playing 270 shows in 365 days” Lead singer Dan Kelly told The Pier.

Don’t Think Twice, the band’s third album which dropped on May 5th, features a steady mix of some of the scene’s most prominent artists. Travi Bongos told us that Don’t Think Twice has a slightly different sound, complimented by their collaborators.

“This album has some really heavy hitting bass and drums. We worked with Caleb from The Green, Marlon Asher, and The Expanders. It was a big family project so I am excited to see what it can do.”

Fortunate Youth has an interesting summer of festivals to look forward to. Among their expected appearances, the group plans to play the Lake Tahoe Reggae Fest on June 27th and KAABOO Music Festival in San Diego on September 18th.

Live: E.N Young at Cali-Roots (5-24-15)

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on Live: E.N Young at Cali-Roots (5-24-15)

DavidNorrisENYoungCaliRoots015 (1)

Date: Sunday, May 24th 2015 (5:20 – 6:00pm at The Original Stage)
Line Up: E.N Young
Venue: California Roots Music and Arts Festival. Monterey County Fairgrounds. Monterey, CA

Live: E.N Young @ Cali-Roots (5-24-15)

Following a Sunday afternoon performance playing alongside Tribal Seeds on The California Roots Festival’s Bowl stage, E.N Young made his way to the festival’s Original stage for his own set. Backed by his band, Imperial Sound, Young played over half an hour consisting mostly of songs off his 2015 release, Live Love Stay Up.

Young started the crowd with “Creation Rebel,” a song featured on the latest album. And then Young did something that perhaps no artist at Cali Roots would even think of doing; He sampled Skrillex to transition into the meat of his set with his signature dreadlocks making their first appearance of the night.

But like so many of the other acts at this year’s festival, E.N Young mentioned California Roots talent-buyer and partner Dan Sheehan as a major influence on his career as an artist. Sheehan was DavidNorrisENYoungCaliRoots015 (7)responsible for bringing Young and his music to the islands of Hawaii and Guam. It is clear that the relationships the founders have been able to build with their pool of talented artists is the reason why California Roots has become what it is today.

Before going in on his track “Blessed Love,” an emotional Young dedicated the ballad to his wife. During the set the San Diego-based musician was joined on stage by fellow Tribal Seeds members Maad T-Ray, Gonzo and drummer Carlos Verdugo, each helping to play separate E.N Young original songs.

While Young has been a major player in the reggae scene for awhile, touring with Tribal Seeds and producing records at his studio Imperial Sound Studio, his solo career is just starting to take off. Always busy working on a staggering amount of projects, Young told The Pier that he is starting to invest more time in his own work.

“For a couple years I produced a lot of records and during that time I was able to join one of the best bands in the states, Tribal Seeds. It was a blessing and I put priority to that. But I have always wanted to do the solo thing all the way and now I have the opportunity to do that. I have a lot of ideas for my own music that I didn’t have time to develop but now I feel the time has come.”

Young had a busy Cali-Roots performing keys and melodica with Tribal Seeds, drums for Leilani Wolfgramm among his other guest appearances throughout the weekend including his own solo-set. E.N Young is currently promoting his latest album Live Love Stay Up that was released January 20th via his own Roots Musician Records. Look out for E.N Young and Imperial Sound, his solo-venture, on tour performing new material from the new album!
