Calling all head bobbing, hip swinging reggae fans! Hawaii-born and Cali-brewed super band Iration will be blessing Charlotte with their mashup alternative reggae/rock/dub sound Wednesday, June 14. Charlotte is the fifth stop on their 2017 Sounds of Summer Tour. Spreading love and good vibes at every show, these gentlemen have been touring nationwide for almost 10 years in venues large and small. Iration has recorded and released five full-length albums, with all but one reaching the Billboard Reggae Albums chart. Time Bomb has to be by far, our favorite work.
Alongside Iration, Charlotteans will also get to see Hawaii based artist J Boog and Philly based reggae band, The Movement. J Boog, born and raised in Compton, California, is largely influenced by his Samoan heritage and classic Jamaican reggae music. J Boog has released 3 full-length albums, a handful of singles and has traveled worldwide, speaking to his fans about peace and humility while putting on incredible performances. His song “Let’s Do It Again” has over 37 million (and counting) listens on Spotify.
The Movement is an acoustic rock/reggae group formed in the Carolinas and eventually relocated to Philly to continue pursuing music. The band has released 6 albums, the first (“On Your Feet”) was produced as a three man band in South Carolina before Jay Schmidt joined the band as an additional guitarist; they expanded their ranks in Philly to write and release subsequent new albums. Their music strays away from typical rasta reggae; The Movement includes hip-hop and rock n’ roll influences, creating their own unique take on reggae music.
Catch these artists at the Neighborhood Theatre in NODA, the artsy fartsy district of Charlotte; tickets are 22$ advanced and 25$ at the door, but you can Purchase Them Here. Bought your ticket already? RSVP Here. Doors open at 6 pm, show at 7 pm. +18 up only.
