Hailing from Santa Rosa, The Bloodstones bring an original,positive "roots reggae" vibration. The unique style and conscious, creative lyrics of "Sky I" ignites the bands positive, driving movement. An 8-piece band including two horns, two guitarists and three part harmonies really bulk up the sound. Although the band focuses on original music they have added some classic crowd pleasing "roots reggae" covers into the set.
The Bloodstones deliver a positive, conscious, groove that results in people dancing and having an epic experience. The music is filled with melodic solos, bass heavy "dub" sections and hypnotic grooves..
The Bloodstones' Songstress, Katrina Blackstone, brings her distinctive sound of bubbling pop melodies effervesce over beds of dub and funk, while her hooks punctuate various grooves in a perfect blend of subtlety and catchiness. The dueling guitar section consists of Sam Hamby and Kevin Seisenbacher. Sammy has been shredding guitar for 20 years. He also leads his own band "The Marshal House Project" (performing as a Redwood Cafe Presents show on April 14). Kevin Seisenbacher is versatile guitarist, formerly of the band "Felony Funk"...from rock to reggae, Kevin does it all. The rhythm section is held down by bassist and producer, Ben Stephens. His meaty bass lines and soulful groove locks in perfectly with the fiery drumming of Mingo Lewis Jr. Mingo has been touring internationally with reggae/jazz band Groundation as their percussionist for the last 12 years. Nicholas Hasty on saxophone adds to the sound.
"We put a lot of love into our music. Our passion comes out in our playing. Our music is a soulful expression of our emotions.We make home made heartfelt compositions." ~ The Bloodstones
