John Brown’s Body

If Groundation is leading the way in the West, then John Brown’s Body rules the Eastern USA. An experienced jam band firmly planted in reggae, this distinctively American northeastern group has been touring the world since 2003 promoting their Future Roots Music sound.

On a recent trip, I caught JBB playing a local club in a ski town. Although it was well below zero outside, the show highlighted their progressive sound and superb talents blending contrasting styles from Old School roots to modern electronic dubstep (and a bit of everything in between).

The combo was keeping the predominantly granola snowboard and ski crowd warm and grooving all night.
