Root SHOCK was formed in Winter of 2012 with veteran musicians whose love of reggae music flows deep. Blending roots reggae, dancehall, heavy drum & bass and soulful vocals with conscious lyrics into positive dance music will make you want to move!
Root Shock has been surprising and delighting crowds across the Central New York region, bringing their unique high-energy style spearheaded by the stunning vocals of Jessica Brown to a wide range of settings. The band’s dedication to spreading music with a positive message has paid off in entertaining, elevating, and energizing music lovers of all walks of life!
Hailing from diverse musical backgrounds, Nina’s Brew is a melting pot of influence, genre, and talent. The trio joined forces in winter of 2017 after casually playing a couple of gigs together in Burlington, VT, where they first met. Their sound is rooted in blues and soul, but also meanders the likes of R&B, hip-hop and pop. They integrate tight harmonies, beat boxing, heavy blues guitar shredding and can quiet the room down or take it by storm. While a zygote of a band, each member has been in the New England scene for some time, navigating solo and band projects alike and honing their styles independently of one another. When they decided to give it a go, the trio hit the ground running… opening for Zach Deputy in May, touring heavily between NY and VT, debuting on 104.7 The Point, and are in the midst of wrapping up their first EP (due out this fall). They’re hard at work crafting new songs, revisiting old ones and creating a sound that resonates across a spectrum of listeners. The trio features Giovanina on rhythm guitar and vocals, Mike Brewster on lead guitar and vocals, and Isaac French on vocals, piano, percussion and if the iron strikes, guitar as well (not all at the same time). Their live performance is uniquely infectious and soulful. And not to be missed.
