KGNU Presents - Arise Roots- RESCHEDULED FROM APRIL at Ophelia's Electric Soapbox on September 11, 2020
The passion to create a unique, roots reggae band is what brought the members of Arise Roots together. Hailing out of Los Angeles, Arise Roots was formed in 2010. The goal: to create a fresh reggae sound with a modern feel that appeals to all ages and races, but one that doesn’t compromise the true feel of roots reggae. Anybody who has had the opportunity to witness an Arise Roots show understands the powerful sound and positive vibration that they produce. Always paying homage to past reggae legends, Arise Roots’ sound is influenced by such artists as The Heptones, Israel Vibration, The Wailing Souls, Black Uhuru, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Mighty Diamonds, Alton Ellis, Barrington Levy, Burning Spear, Bob Marley and The Wailers, The Skatalites, Alton Ellis, Sizzla, and Midnite.
