Meet The Delirians; a group of a cats with a whole lot of sound and style in one bag. They invited me down to their set recently at 710 Beach Club in Pacific Beach, San Diego. I could not help but notice a steady combination of skills, charisma and humbleness from this band. Turn up your speakers and get ready for some old time souls laying it down in a new time way.
Recently I joined a band playing keys with some cats called New Leaf out of North County, San Diego. Here’s a peak at our rehearsal from last week plus some boogie antics from a fun session at Salt Creek. Catch New Leaf opening up for Slightly Stoopid and The Expanders 8/26 at Del Mar Race Track. Thanks to my homie Reza for shooting the boogie clips.
Meet my friends Common Sense and World Anthem, two Laguna Beach home grown bands who’ve been blessing Orange County with reggae love long before the term “Cali Roots” was born. This episode features raw footage of World Anthem’s set at Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach last weekend and new song from Common Sense live in San Clemente, CA.
This past two weeks have been very musical with great friends. Starting with Eric Riegler and myself and a new original called “Out Of The Race” and then a visit from Chuck Treece leading to skate and dub antics. Turn up your speakers and check the vibes.
What does “being positive” mean to you? This short episode is based off a live production I did this weekend of a song called “Truth Hurts”. I wrote it in 2008 after learning that some fellow musicians and friends were hating on my new music expression and talking a lot behind my back. Half of this was filmed in my music lab and the other half in the tunnel at Salt Creek in south Orange County, CA. This a new RootsTronic version. It’s is a good way for me to tell you that, just like real life, Positive Vibes Network isn’t always going to be happy go lucky. Balance is what I hope to bring you. Enjoy the show. One love.
Meet my brother from another mother, Einstein Brown, a music artist from Trinidad who moved to California in the early 80’s to create a fruitful music career from the Steel Pan, straight from the heart. I was inspired years ago by his song “Humanize The Earth’ so I produced a little dub version it for us to jam on this episode while we talk.
Meet my friend Tom Rule, owner of Moldy Toes Records in San Clemente, CA.
