From their Myspace Page:

Formed in 1999, ROOTS OF CREATION have persevered by creating great original music and working hard. In the past 2 years they have taken things seriously and started their own record label, toured constantly, released two full-length studio albums, signed with In The Pocket Artists booking agency and Leeway's Home Grown Music Network, got world wide record distribution, and managed themselves all on their own without major label support.

Their New CD: RISE UP Features SPECIAL GUESTS: Sam Kininger (Soulive), Gordon Stone (Phish, Moe, Strangefolk), and C-Money from Slightly Stoopid (...formally of John Browns Body)!

Recorded, mixed, and co-produced by Pete "Boardz" Peloquin (O.A.R., Gov't Mule, Drop Kick Murphys) @ Studio Metronome (www.studiometronome.com).

The album includes ROC favorites like "Rise Up!", "Universal Soldier", and even their own rendition of the Otis Redding classic "That's How Strong My Love Is".

Roots of Creation has shared the stage with national acts such as...

Toots and the Maytals, The Wailers, Matisyahu, Badfish, Paranoid Social Club, Zox, Reel Big Fish, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Dub is a Weapon, SOJA (Soldier of Jah Army) and Strangefolk. They have also shared the stage with members of Culture, Israel Vibration, Yellowman, Slightly Stoopid, and John Browns Body.

Saturday April 26th * Healing Sixes

Photobucket


From their Myspace Page:

GREAT ROCK SONGS WITH A BLUESY EDGE. HEALING SIXES COMBINE ELEMENTS OF LEGENDARY ARTISTS LIKE LED ZEPPELIN, THE BEATLES AND OTIS REDDING - WITH THE MODERN SENSIBILITIES OF AUDIO SLAVE, THE BLACK CROWES, AND JEFF BUCKLEY. IN 2000, HEALING SIXES RELEASED THEIR FIRST CD "MAPLE", AND GAINED MUCH ATTENTION BY BRINGING IN JASON BONHAM (SON OF LED ZEPPELIN DRUMMER JOHN BONHAM). JASON WAS HEALING SIXES' DRUMMER FOR FOUR YEARS. HEALING SIXES' SECOND CD "ENORMOSOUND" WAS RELEASED WITH THE HELP OF KEVIN "CAVEMAN" SHIRLEY (BLACK CROWES, AEROSMITH). KEVIN PRODUCED "ENORMOSOUND" TO MUCH CRITICAL ACCLAIM. "ENORMOSOUND" IS AVAILABLE IN EUROPE AND CANADA THROUGH CORAZONG RECORDS. MUCH OF HEALING SIXES APPEAL HAS BEEN THEIR VOCALIST DOUG HENTHORN. DOUG'S DRAWN THE SPOTLIGHT AS A GUEST VOCALIST ON JOE BONAMASSA'S LATEST RECORDING 'YOU AND ME' WHICH SPENT THREE WEEKS AT NUMBER ONE ON THE BILLBOARD BLUES CHARTS. ALWAYS PUTTING THE EMPHASIS ON THE SONG, HEALING SIXES' MUSIC IS STRONG, VIBRANT, AND NEVER FORMULATED. THE INCREDIBLE TALENT OF ALL FOUR OF IT'S MEMBERS COMBINED WITH YEARS OF ROAD EXPERIENCE (PLAYING EVERYWHERE FROM BB KINGS IN MANHATTAN AND CHICAGO HOUSE OF BLUES TO CABO WABO IN MEXICO AND THE HARD ROCK IN TORONTO) MAKES THE HEALING SIXES EXPERIENCE SIMPLY RIVETING.

Started in 2005, Boogie Matrix Mechanism released their debut album "Glass Candy" over Halloween 2006. They give the audience an eclectic mix of Jam psychedelia, hip hop, blues, reggae, funk n more. This seven piece band gives the audience not just funked out grooves or trippy space, but also some strong messages through the lyrics and entertaining opportunities through crowd participation. Out of Toledo, OH this jam band is bringing a positive vibe with an original mix of styles that few if any are doing today
