John Brown's Body's "Future Roots" uses reggae as a foundation, but incorporates dub, drum and bass, dancehall, hip hop and other musical experiments and exploration to create a sound both timeless and forward. However it's defined, its got people buzzing about this progressive band from Boston and Ithaca, NY. The New York Daily News called them "reverent and revolutionary". Their latest album, Amplify, debuted at #1 on Billboard's Reggae Chart. The 8-piece band's killer live show has super heavy rhythms, a three piece horn section, air tight drum and bass and "the most gorgeous melodies in all of modern reggae music" [All Music Guide], all backed by a dubbed-out sound engineer.

-"More massive attack than Marley." - New York Daily News
Madison, WI's Jam/electronic band, Wook has drawn on influences from all genres. A mix of jam, progressive rock, singer songwriter roots, and electronic instrumentation, the group creates a sound that is ever changing. This youthful approach to music is mirrored by the youthfulness of the band. Only in their early twenties, Wook has seen great success with sharing their music for all to enjoy. Stressing a fun and inclusive atmosphere, Wook shows have grown to become a must-attend party. As the group continues on their musical path, it is clear that the best is yet to come!

Since 2008, Wook has been spreading it's reach all over the Midwest, in markets like Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago. Participating in festivals such as Summer Camp (2010 & 2011), Jammin' On The Wolf (2010 & 2011), and Grateful Garcia Gathering (2009, 2010 & 2011), and sharing the stage with acts like Conspirator, Future Rock, Family Groove Company, Strange Arrangement, Zach Deputy, Steez, Ultra Violet Hippopotamus, Roster McCabe, and The Coop, Wook has begun to carve out its own niche in the growing jam scene. Through their fresh take on instrumentation, song composition, and life, Wook inspires audiences and fans to join in the party and the music.
