NASHVILLE favorites Roots Of A Rebellion bring the party to Barrelhouse South this weekend. Affectionately abbreviated to ROAR, the band has been playing original reggae/rock/dub music since 2010, earning awards, including "Best Local Band," and fans along the way.
Inspired by love, joy, and the radiant energy the band absorbs from day-to-day, ROAR is inspired by greats like Sly and the Family Stone, Funkadelic, and contemporaries like Savannah’s own Passafire, Flying Lotus, and Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad.
ROAR’s second LP, A Brother’s Instinct, debuted at #4 on the Billboard Reggae charts, and their dynamic live show has earned them opening spots with The Wailers, Slightly Stoopid, North Mississippi Allstars, and more.
Upstate New York’s Wild Adriatic kicks off the evening with a sound influenced by ‘70s rock, Motown, and soul.
