Straight from the mountains of Fort Collins, CO, Luna Shade jumped into the Reggae scene not knowing the family they’d make along the way.
LS was formed by lead singer Andrew Ricci & then guitarist Jason Johnson in early 2018 after Andrew’s escape back to CO from St. Croix, U.S.V.I to avoid the every growing threat of hurricane Maria. The groups’ first EP “Birds Of A Feather” gained traction in the CO scene after it’s release on 2/14/2019, solidifying the departure of Jason & introduction of new members Ismael Mendoza on bass, Tyler O’ Hare of guitar, Chris Rodgers on keys, & Preston Gray on Drums.
The work ethic of the band & dedication to always striving higher has seen LS on 60+ regional shows this past year alone, a live music video, countless support to touring acts like Roots Of A Rebellion, Kash’d Out, KBong, Mike Love & Dubbest just to name a few, & a full-length LP from Chimaera Sound Studios, released on 11/28/2019.
The 2020 horizon sets the band out traveling with their first ambitions to branch out from their home state in the spring of 2020 for the opportunity to meet a whole batch of new Family along the way.
Hailing from Denver, CO and playing their own unique style dubbed as “New American Reggae” Rastasaurus has expanded quickly in the exploding Denver music scene. Mixing a blend of influences from improvisational, reggae, rock and everything in between the band leaves a lasting musical impression everywhere they go. Centered around the prolific songwriting of Justus Lacewell (vocals, guitar), mixing thick, psychedelic grooves of Eric Ciccone (lead guitar) with twin brother Mark Ciccone (bass, vocals), Stephen Howell (keyboards) and the smooth, funky rhythms of Sam Neihaus (drums) round out the quintet.
With their original songs featuring an infusion of reggae with elements of funk, rock and roll, improvised jamming and dub, Rastasaurus is constantly exploring and expanding its own unique blend of American reggae.
