Description
VEGITATION ~ ALL ORIGINAL ROOTS JAM ROCK REBEL MUSIC

Vegitation was formed in Ocean Beach, California, in 2002 by a like minded group of people joining in one mission...to make life better. The band brings positive music with a powerful message and universal appeal to the world. Vegitation’s sound is roots reggae mixed with classic rock, blues, and pop, put together to create their own unique, original sound that transcends ages and musical tastes. When you are a part of a live show, you are part of a movement and a family. Vegitation has put out three full length cds and is currently working on their fourth with new drummer Ishmael the Peacemaker.

Ishmael the Peacemaker has been playing reggae music for more than 40 years. Ishmael has put out three of his own cds and has just released ’Gracious Gorilla’, his fourth. He has been spreading his words throughout the world and is extremely excited about this merger.

With these two powerful bands combined, Vegitation has new strength and is currently booking shows worldwide. Be a part of the movement. Let the music bring you peace and the beats move your feet. Vegitation has become a must see act. Vegitation has shared the stage with The Wailers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Skatalites, Wailing Souls, The Abyssinians, Ozomatli, John Brown’s Body, Karl Denson, Cake, Barrington Levy, Fishbone, the Itals, and many other international acts. Be a part of the revolution. Let the music bring you peace.
