Reggae On The Rocks is considered one of the premiere reggae festivals in the world and has been showcasing the best legendary reggae artists in the world as well as buzz worthy up and coming acts.
311 was formed in 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska by singer/guitarist Nick Hexum, singer S.A. Martinez, guitarist Tim Mahoney, drummer Chad Sexton and bassist P-Nut. The band now resides in Los Angeles, California.
311 mix rock, reggae, hip-hop and funk into their own unique sound. After years of touring, 311 have developed a reputation as one of the most entertaining & dynamic live bands in the U.S.
311 have released eleven studio albums, one live album, one greatest hits album and three dvd’s – and have sold over 9 million units in the U.S. They are currently writing and recording their 12th studio album for projected release in early 2017.
Iration is an alternative/reggae group of musicians formed in Isla Vista, CA. A deep-rooted reggae influence is fused with elements of rock and pop to create smooth original sounds – “We’re all about luv”, states the band. The group is made up of members Joseph Dickens (Drums), Cayson Peterson (Keyboard/Synth), Micah Pueschel (Guitar/Lead Vocals), Adam Taylor (Bass), and Micah Brown (Guitar/Vocals).
All of the members of Iration met while growing up in Hawaii but formed the band after reconnecting in Santa Barbara, CA – the exception being Micah Brown who officially joined the group in 2014. The group released their Hotting Up album in summer of 2015. The album’s lead single “Reelin” debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae singles chart. Iration has been touring nationally since 2008, performing at national festivals like Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Hangout, and many others.
These Hawaiian-bred musicians look forward to spreading their original sound and Aloha spirit all the while never forgetting to get a surf in when possible.
