"City of Gaithersburg - Maryland"

Sound Planet is a truly unique and welcomed addition to the Cities pool of entertainment. I found their music and overall performance to be very dynamic, and we receive a lot of positive feedback from spectators. Good Show!!! We hope Sound Planet will countinue to be a part of future events with the City of Gaithersburg. - Diane Coupe - Events Manager / Festivals & Lawn Concert Series

"Adams Morgan Day Festival"

The band was selected out of several applicants, to Headline the 2003 Adams Morgan Day Festival, because we felt the music was most innovative, and represented the diversity of our 20 year old event. The Sound Planet band, and its management were very professional throughout the entire process, and on stage they seemed to interact really well with the audience. We wish all the best to Sound Planet, and highly recommend them to promoters of any Festival events. - Festival Management Team

"CCNV - 2003 Festival"

Dear Sean,

Sound Planet was terrific, and I'm amazed that
the group was able to appeal to such a diverse
audience. Also surprising was that with so few members
the group was able to achieve such a big and glorious
sound. As the Festival Headliner for the day, Sound Planet met every expectation for both art and showmanship.
your band not only attracted a large number of people to
the event but kept them there. I was pleased to see that listeners not only filled the event tent area, but also spilled out into the nearby parks to experience your performance. Incredible.
The downtown Washington, DC summer music festival of
2003 was a big success due in large part to the group's musical contribution, artistic ability and
dedication to giving a crowd-pleasing performance. A memorable day for all.

I can't thank you enough for all your help. We will certainly call upon you for any future events that require quality, reliable and heart-felt music. I
hope the group's busy schedule will allow you to
accommodate us at that time.

With sincere appreciation,
Dennis Sobin

Feeling a bit camera shy


* The Sound:
The innovative music of Sound Planet, spans a gap between Reggae, Funk, Rock, Pan-African, Salsa and other world influences.

* The Evolution of a Planet:
.......And so the story goes. The band began conceptually in late 2003 as Sean Connolly had been writing songs towards a sound, which fused together all his favorite styles. He slowly started searching out musicians with simpilar concepts and experience, when (((more to come)))

'''''''''''''' *** $@$% Sound Planet has been blazing a path with notable performances at festivals and events, and now sees the tangible results from their labor of love by steadily gaining an impressive fan base.

* Song Creation Process:
"Taking fans around the world in a set", Sean writes the majority of bands innovative material, with Massama contributing some amazing originals as well. However, it's truly during rehearsals that a unique musical/personality chemistry between all the band members evolves the songs into unique works of art.

* Planet Purpose:
"To remain faithful to the freedoms of musical exploration, while enlightening our fans ("The Inhabitants") on both stage and radio with an evident passion, and a solid groove to get lost in."

*** The Planet Population ***

"Holding Down the Bottom", Sean fuses his versatile playing skills with innovative song writing talents to help drive the Planet sound. Sean began his journey into the creative arts at a very early age by writing song lyrics and poetry, but a natural sense of rhythm soon found him experimenting with various instruments. A little known fact is that Sean did not begin by playing bass, but in a short stint as drummer with his first band Zion Wave. However, as fate would have it, a minor arm injury coupled with his band losing their original bass player four weeks before a major gig caused Sean to switch over to the bass, which he fell in love with and it has been his primary instrument ever since. Sean's performing and song writing experience encompasses a myriad of styles including Reggae, World Beat and Rock. When not performing with the SP, he stays busy writing/producing musical works for other artist through his company (Studio Irie Productions) Other Interests: Martial Arts Practice, Cooking and Poetry.

* Massama Dogo: (comming soon)
