Groundation: "If you don't know your past, you don't know your future" - a statement that Groundation's music captures fully! While capturing the essence of true Roots Reggae, the internationally acclaimed Groundation aims to take the art of genre-bending to new heights by blending elements of Jazz, Funk and transcendental Dub in their progressive amalgam of sound – some call it Progressive Reggae. The band derived its name from the “grounation,” the Rastafarian ceremony of the same name. Grounations are ancestral Rastafarian gatherings aimed at reaching a common vibration through the positive power of prayer and music - something that the band shares with its fans at each concert. Groundation may be based on an ancient tradition, but it is an idea for today.
Thrive: Hybrid Reggae/Rock band Thrive is pioneering a unique sound in the ever-growing genre of Reggae/Rock music. In a world where materialistic and careless attitudes prevail, Thrive is carving a positive, new musical niche within multiple musical markets. “We’ve worked hard to maintain our originality” says guitarist/vocalist Aaron Borowitz who founded the group in early 2008. “Each Member has such different taste in music and that translates through our sound”. Thrive is the collaboration of the musical talents of Aaron Borowitz, Kenneth Rogers, Greg Medieros, and Matt O’Connor. In just two years, Thrive has shared the stage with great performers like SOJA, Tribal Seeds, Rootz Underground, Ooklah The Moc, Prezident Brown, Rebelution, Anthony B, The Dirty Heads, Katchafire, Don Carlos, Tarrus Riley, Tomorrows Bad Seeds and many others all over California and Hawaii. While performing at many venues , Thrive is working to build their fan base, meet other musicians, and branch out into other genres. In addition, Thrive is working with local clothing sponsor “California Roots” for their merchandise to promote their brand. 2010 is projected to be a great year for Thrive as they have several regional tours in the works as well as the release of their new “Counterculture EP”. Songs like “Sweet Love” and “If I Want To” are now playing on Hawaii radio stations like Oahu’s Island 98.5 and Maui’s Q103. Thrive looks forward to seeing where the world of music can take them next, and what positive things they will be able to accomplish along the way. Thrive is presently touring in support of their new “Counterculture EP”, the first full length Thrive album “Gratitude Attitude” is now on itunes.
