About this Event

Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam favorites like Gathering of The Vibes, Wakarusa, Camp Bisco, and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, Fishbone, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Roots of Creation (RoC) offer up a high-energy, infectious experience. Recognized as a Top 20 artist on the Relix/Jamband radio chart, a festival staple, and an internationally touring powerhouse, RoC have been awarded Favorite Jam Band by Cider Magazine and Best Band In New Hampshireby the New England Music Awards. RoC mix their jam-reggae hybrid sound with homegrown roots, guitar-heavy rock, and lead singer/guitarist Brett Wilson’s introspective and conscious laden lyrics.

Named after a Sublime song on the B-Side of the Badfish CD single, Roots of Creation is made up of founding members, guitarist/lead singer Brett Wilson, keyboardist Tal Pearson, and drummer Mike Chadinha. The trio came together at Franklin Pierce College in New Hampshire where they embraced the state motto, “Live Free or Die,” in their music and message. Today the original trio is joined by newest members Billy Kottage (Reel Big Fish) on trombone, rhythm guitar, keys and harmony vocals, Andrew Riordan on saxophone, synth and harmony vocals, and Nick Minicucci on bass guitar.

In 2012, RoC won the Cider Magazine Award for Favorite Jam Band, and in 2013, won the New England Music Award for Best Band In New Hampshire. In 2014, the band released Summer in the 603with The SSP (Super Secret Project), a parody video of NH. The video went viral, hitting major news outlets and surpassing 75K views. The band’s intent is to deliver a true rock show cleverly disguised as a reggae dance bash with psychedelic and energizing lights. Since hitting the top 20 on the Relix/Jamband radio charts, RoC has toured internationally playing over 1,000 shows coast to coast, encouraging audience taping of shows amassing nearly a quarter of a million downloads of their live performances on music archive site, archive.org, and building a loyal and engaged fanbase, one by one. Relix Magazine describes their live show as one that erupts on stage, severing artist-audience barriers while summoning fans to join them in an awakening.It’s no surprise then that the band has released three live albums and one live DVD, in addition to two studio albums.
