Crowbar says
J BOOG (Jerry Afemata), a reggae singer of Samoan descent was born in Long Beach and raised in Compton, CA. He is the youngest of seven brothers and one sister who come from hard working parents that relentlessly instilled a strong cultured household.

Currently residing back and forth between Hawaii and California, J Boog has been working incessantly since the release of his debut album "Hear Me Roar" (2007). He followed that up with his sophomore album "Backyard Boogie" (2011) which topped the US Billboard Charts and iTunes charts in numerous countries. It gave a variety of roots, r&b, lovers rock and good vibes. Hits included: Let’s Do It Again produced by Don Corleon and Sunshine Girl produced by Gramps Morgan featuring Morgan Heritage front man Peetah Morgan.

The success of Backyard Boogie earned J Boog Best Entertainer Award at the 2012 Irawma Awards held in Chicago, IL. A year later, he dropped a 5 song EP called "Live Up" & a mix-tape collaboration with fashionista powerhouse Diamond Supply Co. His most recent EP "Rose Petals" (2016) peaked the US Billboards & iTunes Charts at #1 & was nominated for Best Reggae Album of the Year at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. It featured hip hop mogul Snoop Dogg & six time Grammy Award winner Stephen Marley. The Rose Petals EP was just a little foreplay to what would become his next full length album called "Wash House Ting."

Ries Brothers
The Ries Brothers (pronounced ”Rees”), are a duo from Tampa, FL who blend rock, blues, funk, and reggae into a soulful-sophisticated sound. Older brother Charlie sings lead vocals while simultaneously playing drums and keyboard bass giving the band it’s unique and full sound. Younger brother Kevin Jordan completes the band’s “sonic creativity” on guitar, provides background vocals and co-writes many of their songs. They have twice toured nationally as the opening act for the iconic band Chicago. Last year they did a 15 city tour opening for the late Butch Trucks (Allman Brothers Band) & The Freight Train Band. They have released 3 EP’s and a Live Concert DVD. Their first full album will be released late spring 2017.
