Conscious, soulful, uplifting, even healing—that’s how many fans of Root Shock have described the band’s infectious sound and energy. With a reputation like that, it’s unsurprising that this group is indebted to reggae, a class of music forever married to love, humanity, social change, and an almost tangible sense of sunlight. But Root Shock didn’t form on a beach. Instead, they came up in snowy Syracuse, New York in 2012, and since then, they’ve developed a voice that transcends genre. Spearheaded by the acrobatic, powerhouse vocals of Jessica Brown, the Root Shock sound is at once commanding and cathartic, but never at the expense of a velvety, carefully placed jazz or neo-soul lick. When he isn’t complementing Brown’s pipes with his own earthy vocal turns, Phil Grajko gets weird on the guitar, seamlessly moving from chop chords to girthy riffs and spellbinding solos colored by Latin, prog, and psychedelic rock textures—often in tandem with mad keyboard genius Brian Lauri. Rounding out the band, bassist Bill Eppel and drummer Tyre Outerbridge make for a formidable rhythm section fluent in patterns ranging from dancehall to ska to heavy dub style and funk.
Four-piece jam band from Boston, Massachusetts. Establishing their current lineup in early 2015, they have quickly secured fans across the northeast, playing many staple venues in the area (ie. Brighton Music Hall, The Middle East Downstairs, The Spot Underground, The Stone Church). Their musical style spans many genres, weaving laid-back funk, soul-tinged jazz, progressive rock, and psychedelic grooves seamlessly under irresistibly catchy lead lines. On any night, Dewpoint pushes songs to new limits by exploring new feels, taking improvisational risks, and concocting set lists that allow musical themes and soaring melodies to be revisited and reimagined throughout the course of a show. With an ever-expanding catalog of original music and noteworthy covers, every show is a unique musical experience.
