Join Natty Nation and Firesale for a special Bob Marley tribute show in the Redstone Room!
Hard Roots Rock Reggae & Dub--this is the unique blend of music that is Natty Nation.
Since 1995 Natty Nation has been keeping the positive messages of their unique indigenous Wisconsin reggae beats throbbing through the heartland. Their messages of peace, love, community, & spreading positive vibrations have been ringing out since Natty's inception.
Natty has backed up reggae legends Lee Scratch Perry, and Chaka Demus & Pliers, and shared the stage with Ziggy, Damian, & Stephen Marley, Sister Carol, Steel Pulse, Burning Spear, Wailing Souls, Culture with Joseph Hill, Beenie Man, & countless others.
JAH Boogie and his backing band's tight but fluid, rootsy but funky, beautiful but gritty, righteous but real vibration is clear to anyone listening to their music, either at a show or on their stereo.
It's almost impossible not to dance at a Natty live performance. Every Natty Nation concert is a different experience. Their energy is infectious & their dubtastic jams are complex, yet their message is simple--spread the positive vibration.

Who doesn’t love a good jam? Fire Sale certainly does. Their music can switch from Phish level rock to traditional reggae to funk on a dime. They pepper their singles with transitions and solos and extended instrumentals. Their live shows do the same, and then some. They are the type of band that has made summer festivals into havens for musical expressionism and extended songs. Fire Sale fits that bill.
Fire Sale is originally from the Davenport area, but their ability has brought them far beyond “Iowa’s Front Porch.” Fire Sale has played shows all around the region with such bands as Dave Zollo and the Body Electric, Euforquestra, Zeta June and Paa Kow’s By All Means Band. Their second album, Mind Breath, was released in 2012, but the band expands their repertoire each time out by including extended mixes and jams on their already crowd favorites.
