Roots of Creation
Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam and reggae-rock favorites like CampBisco, Gathering of The Vibes, California Roots, Jungle Jam and Closer to the Sun, orsharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences includingSlightly Stoopid, The Wailers, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Rootsof Creation (RoC) offers up a high-energy, infectious live music experience. Their mix ofreggae riddims, conscious lyrics, spirited horn lines, and electronic beats makes crowdsmove and has their loyal underground fan base (RoC Family) and street team (UniversalSoldiers) travelling the distance to pack venues from coast-to- coast.
Roots of Creation’s most recent release, Livin Free (2016), debuted No. 1 on both theBillboard Reggae and the Relix/Jambands.com Radio charts. Livin Free is a triple recordthat includes three versions of each song-- studio, dub, and acoustic that features guestperformances by Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Marshall “Ras MG” Goodman(Sublime, Long Beach Dub Allstars), the Rubblebucket horn section, Billy Kottage (ReelBig Fish), Grammy-nominated Pato Banton (Sting, UB40), and others. Additionally, thealbum welcomes guest production by Yeti Beats (Rebelution, Slightly Stoopid).
Now RoC has taken on a unique new project: Grateful Dub. Combining their longtimelove for reggae-dub style music and the Grateful Dead, RoC reworked some of theworld’s favorite Dead tunes into a new studio album. RoC had the pleasure of working inthe studio with the legendary 5-time Grammy winner Errol Brown who was BobMarley’s engineer and now Rebelution’s live sound engineer for this project. GratefulDub is also being performed live in its entirety at festivals, theatres, and clubs aroundthe country, and features rotating special guests including Melvin Seals (JGB), ScottGuberman (Phil Lesh) full horn sections, and others. Grateful Dub captures the spirit andmagic of the Grateful Dead, while laying it down reggae-dub style.

The Elovaters were great 5 stars. The restaurant was good, a little disorganized but it was busy, so I think they did well. We ordered the swag platter and it was completely cold, my only real complaint. We had a blast thanks to the Elovaters!
