Good vibes come to Montbleu

By August 06, 2013

PR Entertainment, Inc. & JMax Productions present “The Good Vibes Summer Tour 2013″ on Wednesday August 21, at MontBleu Outdoor Event Center in Stateline, Nev.

California based band, Rebelution, continues its relentless touring schedule by headlining “The Good Vibes Summer Tour,” with Matisyahu, Bermudan dancehall artist, Collie Buddz, and Hip-hop legends, Zion-I at the Montbleu Outdoor Event Center at Montbleu Resort. Doors open at 5 p.m. and music starts at 6 p.m. All ages are welcome.

Rebelution has developed into a front-runner for grassroots, independent and tour-driven music groups. Originally formed in 2004, members Eric Rachmany, Rory Carey, Wesley Finley  and Marley D. Williams met in college while residing in Isla Vista, a popular beachside community in Santa Barbara. It was there that the seeds to Rebelution’s future were planted, creating inspiring and engaging music that would leave listeners with the sense that they have the power to make this world a better place.

The band continuously tours across the country, ventured to South America and Europe, and has previously performed at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits among others.

 Further solidifying a close relationship with loyal supporters, Rebelution will continue to hold numerous interactive contests, encouraging fans to create art and document and share the process for a chance to play music with the band, paint live on stage and receive limited edition signed memorabilia.

Matisyahu has established a reputation for following his muse since first emerging on the international stage in 2005 — it was a whirlwind half-decade journey, one that earned Matisyahu a place in pop culture at large.

Now Matisyahu blasts off yet again with “Spark Seeker,” a bold new studio album that finds the one-of-a-kind vocalist and songwriter exploring uncharted territory with help from an expansive cast of collaborators.

“My musical tastes are all over the board,” he said in reference to a record that mixes ancient traditional sounds with futuristic electro beats, rapping with singing, songs of the spirit with songs of the body. “And, besides, my music has never been about the outer garment. It’s about searching out inspiration wherever it lies. This album is about seeking that spark within.”

From the isle of Bermuda, Collie Buddz has become the most buzz-worthy current reggae artist over the past few years. In  2007, Collie Buddz’ Columbia Records self-titled debut album stormed the charts entering the Billboard Reggae Chart at first position. The reggae singjay became an international star when this album went on to debut across the world on every chart from Japan to Germany. With much of the production coming from Collie himself, he delivered a solid effort.

Incorporating influences from hip-op to soca, Collie’s music nevertheless has a rock-solid foundation in reggae — and its power to connect ghetto reality with the highest heights of human aspiration. Collie Buddz, born Colin Harper, has become the Caribbean culture’s resident ambassador.

Backing Collie Buddz is Brooklyn, New York, New Kingston blending reggae with R&B and hip hop to create New York-meets-Jamaica sound. Its latest album “Kingston University” released February 2013 as a follow up for the first album “In The Streets,” has already gained love across the Americas and abroad.

Zion I is a hip hop duo from Oakland consisting of producer AmpLive and MC Zumbi. The group is known to its followers for Amp’s futuristic production techniques, using a mix of live instrumentation and samples, and Zumbi’s positive and socially conscious lyrics.

Rebelution said, “Playing music is what we love to do, especially outdoors in the summertime with a bunch of friends. We are really excited to perform on the same stage as Matisyahu, Collie Buddz and our longtime collaborators Zion-I, as well as play some of our new songs live. Hopefully  ‘The Good Vibes Summer Tour’ will exceed its name and everyone will have an amazing experience.”

Advanced tickets can be purchased at the Montbleu Box office or online at TicketFly.com and TicketWeb.com.
