o2.19.2o12. – The show started with “Mentality” a track off their new album that was released just weeks prior. Lead singer Jacob Hemphill was sure to thank the crowd for coming out and supporting their band and it’s message. It was amazing to be surrounded by like-minded people all there for music supporting such a deserving band. Being a fan of their music and having listened to them from back when they opened for Rebelution it was awesome so see them as a headliner. It’s endearing to see people so thankful and appreciative for their fans. The perfect mix of classics and new creations filled The Cabooze while a couple hundred fans sang along to each word for the entire 2 hours they played. They closed the show with “When We Were Younger” and without doubt were demanded back on stage for an encore. The set closed with “Everything Changes” which is one of the more popular songs they have and the crowd as so happy and full of energy. It’s truely a humbling experience to see them live and feel their passion for what they do. Every song the have has a message of a better world and it’s very obvous that they put their all in each note. I would highly recommend attending their show to anyone even if they don’t think they connect with reggae music. This band truely believes in the powere of music and with that power they intend to change the world someday.
