Join us for a reggae meet up at the farm when Rochester’s own Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad meets California’s Arise Roots
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad:
Formed in 2001 in Rochester, New York, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad first received high praise for their live show. Combining world beats and reggae rhythms within jamband aesthetics and mixtape-style non-stop performances, GPGDS has been delighting its audiences for over twenty years with regular stops at the best venues the USA has to offer, in addition to extensive Sirius XM play and additions to playlists, television shows, and commercial placements worldwide. Each of the band’s studio recordings, which showcase their songwriting and musicianship across all genres of roots music, have cemented their legend as master innovators, songwriters, and artists. Since the release of GPGDS’s sixth studio album MAKE IT BETTER debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart, the band has released brilliant singles and dub versions from some of the top producers and performers in the roots reggae world. Despite the challenge of the 2019 pandemic, the band has remained strong, committed to recording and working hard to expand their catalog. Panda has proudly laid down a collection of new music – scheduled to be released over 2022-2023 – as their six plus person squad gears up for a national tour that will spread the sound around the globe and beyond.
Arise Roots was formed in 2010 with the intent to create a new and unique roots-reggae band which reflects their collective passions. Rising up from the streets of Los Angeles, the band had one goal: create a fresh reggae sound with a modern feel that appeals to all walks of life without compromising the true feel of roots reggae. In 2010, the band released their first EP titled, “Lay Your Guns Down.” They later received recognition with the 2013 release of their first full-length album, “Moving Forward.” In 2014 Arise Roots linked with E.N Young at Imperial Sound Recording Studio to record “Love and War.” In 2016 the popular single “Rootsman Town” featuring Capleton was released independently with a music video that garnered millions of views on YouTube and continues to be one of their more popular songs. In the midst of a worldwide pandemic, Arise Roots released their highly anticipated LP “Pathways” in June of 2020 on Ineffable Records. Touching on everything from social issues to love songs and cementing their place in the reggae scene with their hit single “Come and Get It,” the album was a huge success for the band.
