Sol Horizon
Sol Horizon
Voted "Best World/Reggae band" in the North Bay, Sol Horizon seamlessly fuses roots reggae with rock, funk and world beats. Anchored by veteran musicians (including former members of Groundation and Les Claypool's Frog Brigade) Sol is renowned for energetic live performances and their lyrical content, which centers on on themes of peace, community, sustainability and the re-vitalizing power of nature. The band moves feet and inspires minds, creating a positive musical experience that continues to attract fans from across the globe.
Sol has shared the stage with legendary acts like Ziggy Marley, Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Collie Buddz, Morgan Heritage and Don Carlos (to name a few) in both concert halls and festival stages across the USA. In 2008 after touring in support, they collaborated with British Roots Reggae star Pato Banton on the recording of their second album "Party Revolution," which featured Pato on the title track. The bands latest album 'Under the Sun' is currently in production under the direction of Grammy winning engineer Isha Erskine, set for release in early 2017.
The Bloodstones
The Bloodstones
Hailing from Santa Rosa,The Bloodstones bring an original,positive "roots reggae-soul" vibration. The unique style and conscious,creative lyrics of "Sky I" ignites the bands positive,driving movement. Although the band focuses on original music we have added some classic crowd pleasing "roots reggae" covers into the set.

The Bloodstones deliver a positive,conscious,groove that results in people dancing and having an epic experience.The music is filled with melodic solos,bass heavy "dub" sections and hypnotic grooves.

Bloodstone's Songstress Katrina Blackstone brings her distinctive sound of bubbling pop melodies effervesce over beds of dub and funk, while her hooks punctuate various grooves in a perfect blend of subtlety and catchiness. Anyone who has witnessed Katrina on stage couldn’t disagree, she takes the mic with ease, naturally connects with the audience, and always delivers a memorable show.

The dueling guitar section consists of Sam Hamby and Kevin Seisenbacher. Sammy has been shredding guitar for 20 years. He also leads his own band "The Marshal House Project". Kevin Seisenbacher is versatile guitarist formerly of the band "Felony Funk". From rock to reggae, Kevin does it all.

The rhythm section is held down by bassist Burton Eubank. His meaty bass lines and soulful groove locks in perfectly with the fiery drumming of Mingo Lewis Jr. Mingo has been touring internationally with reggae/jazz band Groundation as their percussionist for the last 12 years. He is home now for good and holding down the drum chair with flair for the Bloodstones.

The Keybords are held down by the melodic and futuristic sounds of Gabriel Butler.He also adds his amazing voice to help create the three part harmonies in our music.Gabe has been backing such artists as Wayne Wonder,Warrior King, and Jr Toots to name a few with legendary backing band "Fyah Squad" for the last several years.

We put a lot of love into our music. Our passion comes out in our playing. Our music is a soulful expression of our emotions.We make home made heartfelt compositions.

One love.
