“Local Santa Cruz vibe-masters Pacific Roots opened the show with a strong beat and soothing harmonies. Their rock-roots sound ranged from upbeat with a punk edge to a laid back bass driven groove, and early-comers to this show were treated to a fantastic set. 2019’s line up of this band holds extreme promise. If you like your Cali-style reggae with a bit more roots, this is certainly a band to watch in the coming months.” – sfsonic.com
