Nine Reggae Artists Coming to the “Ninth Island” to Play Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas

Posted on Wednesday February 7th in

Did you know Vegas is such a popular destination among Hawaiians that it’s sometimes referred to as the “Ninth Island?” Given that Hawaii is one of the birthplaces for Island music, there’s no wonder that Vegas’ reggae scene has also become one of the strongest in the country. As a result, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is also home to some of the best roots and dub acts on tour today.

From Stick Figure and Twiddle to Spawnbreezie and SOJA, we’ve tapped some huge names for our 2018 calendar. Need to let loose? Grab a group of friends and head to the Bowl for some irie Island vibes. We’ll see you on the lanes.

>>BUY TICKETS HERE<<

Stick Figure:
Originally hailing from Massachusetts, Scott Woodruff, better known as Stick Figure, creates thick, rhythmic grooves inside his personal studio—a cabin in the woods outside of Santa Cruz, California. Emerging from that very studio, Woodruff’s 2015 release, ‘Set in Stone’, entered the Billboard and iTunes reggae charts at number one, signifying the producer’s valiant return. Complex lyrics, hypnotic instrumentation and hooky riffs are the root of Stick Figure’s magnetic recordings, and they’re only amplified during Woodruff’s live performances.

 

Twiddle:
With his electric guitar wizardry and mesmerizing acoustic jams, singer and guitarist Mihali Savoulidis weaves his musical superpowers into Twiddle, a four-piece jam band that blends rock, jazz, bluegrass, reggae and funk into a dynamic and complex engine. Formed in Vermont in 2004, the genre-defying group has released five studio albums, including 2017’s Plump: Chapter Two.

Iya Terra:
From its uplifting messages to its mood-boosting melodies, L.A.-based roots-rock-reggae group Iya Terra is big on spreading positive vibes. In 2017, the group’s third studio album, ‘Sacred Sound,’ debuted at number one on the iTunes reggae charts.
