Passafire was founded in 2003 and are based in Savannah, Georgia. Ted Bowne, Will Kubley, Mike DeGuzman and Nick Kubley celebrated the release of their fifth studio album, Vines and were welcomed to the Easy Star Records Family as they debuted #1 on the Billboard reggae charts. The album was released on November 11th, 2013 and was nominated for Album of the Year during The Pier’s 2013 Pier Awards.
The group will travel west to perform during the first day of the 5th Annual California Roots Festival and there should be no shortage of high energy. This will be Passafire’s second time playing the festival as well as their second time partaking in The Piers Meet N Greet. During their last tour, coming through Denver, CO, The Pier was fortunate to film the group for The Pier’s Live Acoustic Series back on February 15th 2014. They were accompanied by Ballyhoo! during their Winter Brewhaha Tour that ended with both groups doing a collaboration cover song for the video series. We’ll release the rest of those details as we get closer to premiere the video.
Come by The Pier booth & talk shop with us. The members of Passafire are known for being one of the more down to earth & humble players in the scene, not to mention one of the more original with their alternative blend on rock & bits of reggae. Plus its at no cost, just get there early to avoid any line!
