Reggae, Rocksteady, Early Jamaican Hits -- all-star multi-generational dance band

About this event

BOOM DRAW specializes in the sweet soulful sounds of foundation-era rocksteady, the musical link that took Jamaican music out of ska and into reggae, showing off the best of both. Hailing from Santa Cruz, BOOM DRAW features an all-star, multi-generational lineup of dedicated singers and players known for backing a raft of Jamaican reggae artists both on tour and in the studio. Locally, BOOM DRAW’s ranks include members of Santa Cruz and Bay Area reggae institutions like Pure Roots, the Rastafarians, Dub Congress, Inka Inka, Root Awakening, the Sugarbeats, and more. Their mission: to irresistibly rock dancefloors with "boom draws" — strictly classic songs drawn from reggae's formative years, when the vibes were crucial and the rhythm was king.

BOOM DRAW is: Herb Daly – bass, vocals, Dan Hennig – rhythm guitar, vocals, Matt “Matty B” Barnett – lead guitar, Dan “Danny Dub” Shafer – keyboards, vocals, Amanda “Commanda” Kaay – saxophone, vocals Lou Neuburger – drums
