Live Music: the Joe Sambo Band
July 1, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Joe Sambo is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after up-and-coming reggae musicians in the New England area, playing everywhere from the intimate front-rooms of local breweries to the major stages of The Boston Freedom Rally. Joe’s music blends an upbeat reggae foundation with an energetic rock and pop edge, as well as an infusion of soul and funk, to create sound that audiences have been enjoying for nearly five years.
Joe’s musical career began as a guitarist and vocalist for the hardcore-metal band Spies Like Us. After finding success in a fast-paced and hard-hitting genre, Joe switched gears to hone in on a more laid-back approach to music. He received early accolades when, as the frontman for his group Joe Sambo and the Goonz, he won the 2014 MassCann “Battle for the Rally” contest. Since then, he caught the attention of the reggae community, consistently bringing a lively, high-energy performance to every show. This success has led him to share the stage with the likes of Ziggy Marley, Roots of Creation, Marlon Asher, and Zach Deputy. Joe is currently recording his first full-length album with a projected release in the Summer of 2018.
With that being said, the Joe Sambo Band is a perfect fit for a Sunday evening at The Rough!
