Hard Roots Rock Reggae & Dub--this is the unique blend of music that is Natty Nation.
Since 1995 Natty Nation has been keeping the positive messages of their unique indigenous Wisconsin reggae beats throbbing through the heartland. Their messages of peace, love, community, & spreading positive vibrations have been ringing out since Natty's inception.
Natty has backed up reggae legends Lee "Scratch" Perry, and Chaka Demus & Pliers, and shared the stage with Ziggy, Damian, & Stephen Marley, Sister Carol, Steel Pulse, Burning Spear, Wailing Souls, Culture with Joseph Hill, Beenie Man, & countless others.
JAH Boogie and his backing band's tight but fluid, rootsy but funky, beautiful but gritty, righteous but real vibration is clear to anyone listening to their music, either at a show or on their stereo.
It's almost impossible not to dance at a Natty live performance. Every Natty Nation concert is a different experience. Their energy is infectious & their dubtastic jams are complex, yet their message is simple--spread the positive vibration.
Mikel Wright & the Wrongs:
Based out of Minneapolis, Mikel Wright & The Wrongs brings some of the collective best of what Midwest has to offer. Mikel broke fast onto his local music scene in 2007 and has since earned a respected national reputation for cultivating ridiculous bands and unforgettable nights of music. Mikel's vision has been embraced by some of the best players in The Twin Cities. Due to his no nonsense attitude and natural ability to connect with audiences, players such as American Idol finalist Reed Grimm and The Voice’s star Nicholas David, as well as the very best from a city full of top notch musicians have chosen to join Mikel on the tour stage.
Being huge fans of bands like String Cheese Incident, Umphrey's McGee and Lettuce, their music is rooted in funk but transcends many genres with every set.
Mikel Wright & The Wrongs are always a get down!! Audiences will agree as they wipe the sweat from their brows and nurse sore legs from dancing.
With a well received debut album "We Get Down", and now their sophomore release "Album #2.0", they are touring nationally to spread the word!
