14th Annual Bob Marley Birthday Bash ft. Natty Nation
14th Annual Bob Marley Birthday  Bash ft. Natty Nation
Hard Roots Rock Reggae & Dub--this is the unique blend of music that is Natty Nation.

For more than 17 years Natty Nation has kept 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.

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 infections & their dubtastic jams are complex, yet their message is simple: spread the positive vibration!

Candymakers
The Candymakers are a blues band with the traditions of old-school R&B,funk and soul. This young band offers a sound that is contemporary, yet keeps the essence of music past. Though the band is known for its soulful male vocalists, it is anchored by the collaborative genius of its blues driven guitarist, funky rhythm section and sultry horns.
The band formed in 2010 and were awarded 1st place in the 2011 Iowa Blues Challenge. After reaching the semi-finals in both The International Blues Challenge and The Kings of Beale Street Competition, they returned home to release their debut album the next month in February of 2012. Their second studio effort "Ridiculicious" was released in September of 2014.
