Bursting forth from their underground status, Groundation has taken the music world by storm. Capturing the essence and drive of true roots reggae, the widely renowned band takes the art form to new heights by blending elements of jazz, funk, salsa, soul and transcendental dub in a progressive amalgam of sound all their own.
Groundation’s origins are in the jazz program of California’s Sonoma State University where, in the fall of 1998, Harrison Stafford (guitar/lead vocals), Ryan Newman (bass) and Marcus Urani (keyboards) began their artistic collaboration, developing both their musicianship and their global outlook. It was there that Stafford taught the first accredited class in the California state university system on the History and Culture of Reggae Music. Around this core, the group has evolved to include some of the most respected cross-over instrumentalists on the West Coast, along with harmonies from vocalists Kim Pommell and Sherida Sharpe –both from Kingston, Jamaica–giving the band an incredibly full and deep live presentation.
2014 sees Groundation turn its sites back to the homeland with their first coast-to-coast North American tour in over six years. Though the band has not toured the US nearly as much over the past few years due to their meteoric rise in Europe, South America and Oceania, the build- up of energy for the band’s return to the States is palpable and these upcoming concerts are certain to be events that are not to be missed.
ABOUT BROOKLYN BOWL:
Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is the brand’s third location. The original location opened in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn in 2009 in the former Hecla Iron Works building (built in 1882) and was the first L.E.E.D. certified bowling alley in the world. The second Brooklyn Bowl location opened in January 2014 at the O2 in London, and was hailed by the London Evening standard as a “…wonderland of food, drink, music and pins”.
Brooklyn Bowl has hosted a diverse range of acts, including notable reggae performances by The Green and SOJA with MAGIC! In summer 2014 Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas will also see performances by prominent reggae artists including The Waiters, Jimmy Cliff and J Boog with Rebel SoulJahz and Anuhea. Named Zagat’s “Best Music Venue – New York City” for three consecutive years (as well as “Best Bowling Alley” and “Best Brooklyn Venue”) and one of the best clubs in America by Rolling Stone. Eater described their menu as “epic,” while the New Yorker hailed the club’s unprecedented combination of top-flight music, beer, bowling, and food as “like nailing a spare on a four-ten split.”
