Roots of Creation
Release of new DVD/CD box set, “Live at Bella Terra Festival.”
Not just your typical roots-reggae band, Roots of Creation has been bringing their unique contribution towards the genre since 1999. Bringing in elements seen more commonly in funk and psychedelic rock, this East Coast based group can slip into dubbed out cover songs just as easily as extended jams that keep the crowd involved and interested. RoC is currently touring as a quintet with Nick Minicucci on bass/vocals, and saxophonist Andrew Riordan (Billy Kottage, now in Reel Big Fish, joins RoC on Trombone when he can), in addition to the mainstays of the crew Brett Wilson on lead vocals and guitar, Tal Pearson on vocals and keys, as well as drummer/sampler maestro Mike Chadinha.
