The J Band live in the 9th Ward with The Rockaz opening the show!
“Pretty much the music Bob Marley and Bob Dylan would make after taking tequila shots together.” That’s how Jordan “J” Lindsey describes music by The J Band, which started more than ten years ago at an acoustic open mic night, and is now embarking on an ambitious 2013-14 with the release of their third full length album, To The Last Drop, their newest single, Coconut Mornings, and a national Summer tour including a first time stop in Buffalo.
The J Band’s trademark sound – combining kick-heavy drums with acoustic guitars and instruments like ukulele and steel drums – embraces the sun-soaked surf of their California home. Their energetic live shows and high-spin rate on Pandora have earned them a dedicated following across the country.
The J Band’s new single, Coconut Mornings, was originally recorded as an acoustic song and was exclusive for fans who bought the pre-release of the new album, but the band new it was destined to be bigger – perhaps their best yet. “I love this new single”, says J, “because it’s all about coming home…and for me that meant coming home to the sounds and ideas that first captured me as a songwriter, especially the rhythms and theme of redemption in music:”
Local favorites, The Rockaz, open the show. Built on folk from all four corners of Buffalo NY The Rockaz have developed a unique blend of Rockin’ Soul, Dub, Reggae, R&B, Ska and Funk. The originality of their music is captivating, and unique, conveying messages of goodwill and a vibe that is Irie Mon. The Spirited personalities of The Rockaz music will get you boppin til you dance all night long.
