Matisyahu
Grammy-nominated artist Matisyahu will embark on an extensive summer tour beginning May 30, playing major festivals and co-headlining several shows in the South with Les Claypool and on the East Coast with Umphrey's McGee, including Central Park Summerstage on July 9.

In addition to his shows alongside Claypool and Umphrey's McGee, Matisyahu plays a slew of major festivals this summer including Wakarusa Festival (June 5), Harmony Music Festival (June 14-15), Milwaukee Summerfest (July 2), 80-35 Festival (July 3), Rothbury Festival (July 5), Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest (July 11), Festival d’été de Québec (July 12), and Mile High Music Festival (July 19).

Joined by a new backing band, the acclaimed dub-rock act Dub Trio along with Matisyahu band veterans Aaron Dugan (guitar) and Rob Marscher (keyboards), Matisyahu kicks off the tour May 30 in Florida. Dub Trio, whom The New York Times says "affectionately recall Bad Brains," consists of DP Holmes (guitar & keyboards), Stu Brooks (bass & keyboards) and Joe Tomino (drums & melodica). Dub Trio played on Matisyahu's cover of John Lennon's "Watching the Wheels" for 2007's compilation Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur.
