Hailing from Milwaukee, Recalictrant brings a funky reggae influenced hip-hop jam rock everywhere they go. Conceived in 2002 as an underground hip-hop project, the group quickly found themselves gravitating towards live performance incorporating musical instruments. While staying true to hip-hop roots, the band began experimenting with different styles, combining elements of rock, reggae, funk, and jam influences to create a sound that is purely Recalcitrant.
With focus on original music that has been described as "progressive reggae", live performance is always a fun filled energetic event. 2010 found the band sharing the stage with national acts such as, The Heavy Pets, and Cosmic Railroad, and solidifying festival appearances through out the Midwest. Great things are on the horizon, and we invite you to join the fun!
