BandRockReggae

A highly entertaining and upbeat mix of roots from ska and reggae, with interesting progressive elements. We mainly just write the songs the way we feel they should be, but we always like to keep that upbeat rhythm that makes you want to get up and dance when the music hits your ear. We're all<18.
