About the event

Shamans of Sound

“We love the vibes you’re bringing” is just the call to action the world needs as we come together as a community. It’s time to rebuild the vibe and heal the nation together. There are few forms of music that bring people together in a fusion of peace, love, unity and social consciousness like reggae music does. From dancehall vibes to skankin’ guitars, dub effects, harmonious vocals, melodic horn lines, heavy bass, and addictive grooves, few do it like Shamans of Sound, one of Washington D.C.’ s finest reggae outfits coming straight from the heart of Babylon itself.

The Shamans of Sound live experience is something to behold as they bring no fewer than 9 musicians on-stage, preserving the traditions of reggae music all while never being afraid to experiment and incorporate new elements into their sound which draws audiences back time and time again. The band has had the privilege of playing at prestigious D.C. venues: Kennedy Center, National Cannabis Fest, Union Stage, DC9, Pearl Street Warehouse, and The Hamilton and supporting artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Lettuce, Ghostface Killah, Black Masala, and Talking Dreads as well as airplay in numerous countries, including Spain, Germany, and Brazil.

Featuring a core group of D.C. music scene veterans composed of members of Nappy Riddem, Feel Free, Incwell, Dub City Renegades, Moogatu, Black Masala, Everyday Everybody, Awthentik, and Tropik Sol. Shamans of Sound has won multiple D.C. area Wammie Awards in 2021 and 2019 for Best Reggae Artist/Group as well as garnered endorsements from Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Guitars, one of the premier guitar & amplifier builders.

It was inevitable that this group of D.C. music veterans known as Shamans of Sound would enter the recording studio and replicate their live shows with a rich tapestry of highly polished singles and EPs. Beginning in 2018 they started releasing their music to an expectant public, culminating in their most recent tracks, “Things In Our Nation (2022)” and “District Vibes (2021)”. Accompanying each release is an instrumental version, and remixes from Alpha Steppa (UK), Thunderball, Rooks, and more. With new single releases on the horizon, many post-pandemic live D.C. dates, 2023 will kick off a new era for Shamans of Sound and their ever-growing audience.

“Now Is The Time for Revolution, Now Is The Time for Retribution.”

Higher Education

Higher Education crafts a unique blend of psychedelic soaked roots with raw riotous rock n roll. Higher Ed is a three piece power trio from the state of Maryland, consisting of Brothers Petey and Danny Devaney on Guitar, Bass, and Vocals, and Bradley Wilson on Drums. Together they have toured the country sharing their extensive original catalog of music and high energy performances. Higher Ed’s music certainly bends genres, but their foundation is rooted in Rockin guitar riffs, groovin bass lines, powerful drums, and strong melodies. They are creators of their own unique style of music, ever evolving, while steadily sharpening their sound. If you are a music lover it’s time for you to get educated, you’re about to discover something special.

Check out their latest single “Beer Money” and look out for their next single release “Wish You Well’ dropping on September 30th!
