Show Info

Moe's Alley welcomes back Jamaican Reggae favorites ROOTZ UNDERGROUND for their long awaited return to Santa Cruz. + DJ Moi. Rootz Underground represents Jamaica’s most recent contribution to the International Reggae & World Music scene. While undeniably rooted in reggae the six-member outfit uses their collective passion to create a sound that pushes boundaries and defies being boxed into a single genre. Electric yet organic, gritty and soulful; the band manages to harness the essence that the reggae aficionado was captivated by in the 1970’s while connecting the youth to the pure messages of Rastafari with explosive live performances that are a positive and emotional musical journey. With over a decade sharing the stage together, along with the release of both studio albums “MOVEMENT” (2008) and “GRAVITY” (2010) they have managed to build a strong International fan base that spans across and beyond the 22 countries they have visited in not just reggae but also rock and jamband circles. At home in Jamaica Rootz Underground has made their mark with performances ranging from foundation festivals such as Reggae Sunsplash, Reggae Sumfest, Rebel Salute and Welcome to Jamrock to mixed format shows such as The Air Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival. They have also managed to maintain their popularity in the underground music scene with regular appearances as they mould their touring shows against Kingston’s discerning audiences. With the continued rise of reggae music across the world being played and embraced by all cultures Rootz Underground ensures an undiluted dose of what is happening at the root, transporting audiences to Jamaica from a half-a-world away. They have toured heavily in both North America and Europe for many years gracing events such as Summerjam, Reggae Sunska, Roskilde, Garorock, Ostroda Reggae Festival, Reggae on The River, The Raggamuffins Festival, Earthdance, Harmony Festival, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival to name a few.
