The six-piece band from Cleveland, Ohio may be far from any tropical islands, but that doesn’t stop them from dishing out an interesting mix of reggae, hip-hop and high energy funk for audiences across the country. Tropidelic has a deep and widespread appreciation for music that can be heard in each note. Some of the members are hip-hop heads, while others are into metal, funk or reggae. Each of these genres lends something to their collective sound. “We pride ourselves in being original in our musicality and personality as a band,” says Roads, “but also in not taking ourselves so seriously that it ruins the fun.”
These seasoned road dogs can be found spreading their soulful sound across the country in both intimate venues and music festivals, having shared the stage with and supported such acts as 311, Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, Pepper, The Flobots and Wookiefoot. Previously, Tropidelic has been featured at Electric Forest, California Roots Music & Art Festival, Reggae Rise Up and Warped Tour.
In 2019, the band is focused on touring and working on their next album, which is set to be released in the summer. Stay tuned for what’s to come from Cleveland’s own, Tropidelic.
Powered by lead guitarist Joel Covender’s alternately soaring and shredding guitar solos, Drunken Sunday’s sound also invokes spaced out jams by Covender and rhythm guitarist Ricky Hlavaty, dirty funk bass grooves and laid-back reggae rhythms punctuated by bright and intense keys by Ted Younessi and a driving percussive backbone by drummer Cory Riley. The band’s eclectic sound and style provide a musical platform for Covender’s intense lyrics, meditations on the challenges of life and love that often lead the listener to freedom of thought and spirit.
Winslow’s unique blend of soul, rock and pop has been described by many members of the press and fans alike as a musical breath of fresh air. This sound, combined with the 6-piece outfit’s polished and passionate stage show has led them to sharing the stage with such major acts as Incubus, Earth Wind & Fire, OAR, Robert Randolph, Keane, Lupe Fiasco, Rusted Root, and many more.
Falling Into Fire is a versatile 6 piece rock band from Cleveland, Ohio. The band combines the best of what the 90’s had to offer with a vision of tomorrow’s rock and roll, embracing several elements from driving drums and heavy riffs to funky bass lines and vocal melodies with pop sensibilities.
“Carlos Jones is to Cleveland reggae what Jim Brown is to Cleveland running backs: the undisputed champ. With Jones at the forefront of the scene for more than 25 years – first in I-Tal, then in First Light – this city’s reggae following was practically built upon his back. Devoutly spiritual, Jones is a Bob Marley devotee who eschews dancehall for galvanizing roots-reggae. Jones and his PLUS Band were voted Best Live Act in Cleveland at the 2004 Scene Music Awards and since then have won the award for Best Reggae/World Act every year, culminating in being given permanent “All Star” status in 2007. They maintain a hectic pace of gigging at clubs, private events and festivals, playing out every single weekend. As a result, the band’s soulful rhythms and heartfelt vocals have made it one of Cleveland’s top draws for close to a decade.” – Cleveland Scene Magazine
