Join us for a very special Reggae Tuesdays as the 5th Annual Surf Roots Tour stops off in Santa Barbara at Sandbar as they make their way up the California coast!
Anuhea (pronounced Ah-New-Hey-Ah) is a self-taught guitarist and song-writer born on the Hawaiian island of Maui. With a delicate balance of fragility, Anuhea blends engaging lyrics, acoustic soul, pop and reggae into a style that has earned her a reputation as Hawaii's newest rising star. Anuhea's signature guitar rhythms, sultry vocals and honest song writing weave acoustic soul, R&B, jazz and blues with pop appeal reminiscent of a female version of multi-million selling Hawaii based Jack Johnson.
The boys of The Green have stayed busy in the music and entertainment industry by working with such artists as Kimie, Ooklah the Moc, Paula Fuga, Father Psalms, BW, Micah G, Caleb, Irie Love,Mama T, Kaipo Kapua, The Mana'o Company, and have also backed international reggae stars such as Pam Hall, Chaka Demus and Pliers, Don Carlos, Pato Banton, Mikey Dread, Shinehead, Ruff Scott & Elan Atias. After releasing a full-length album in October of 2009, The Green continues to push forward with their catchy grooves and powerful lyrics that guarantee entertainment to any listener.
Based out of the South Bay of San Diego, neighboring the highest crossed border in the world, the members of Stranger draw inspiration from their diverse surroundings. It is multicultural and musical diversity that grants Stranger a soulful blend of reggae roots, rock and jazz infused with conscious lyrics. In their hometown of San Diego, Stranger has helped fill venues like The House of Blues, The Belly Up and Canes. On May 10th, 2009 Stranger performed for a sold-out crowd of over 2500 at the Karl Strauss Beach To Brewery Festival for the fourth year in a row. They also opened for the sold-out 23rd Annual Bob Marley Fest at the San Diego Sports Arena.
Born by the beach and proud to be Australian Tamarama's Jay and Pottsy are spreading their infectious style of surf rock/pop to the masses.. After releasing their first EP in 2008 they spent time touring the east coast of Australia and California while working on new music. Now fresh from recording their debut LP in New York City with acclaimed producer David Kahne (Sublime, the Strokes, Sugar Ray) they are set for a release in June of 2010 with a string of touring dates including Bonnaroo and Mountain Jam.
