Groundation @ Boulder Theater
Groundation's long awaited full length studio album "Here I Am" will be released July 21 in the US. Groundation has truly become a worldwide movement. Incorporating a unique blend of reggae, jazz, and dub Groundation has created a global community of fans that continues to grow.
Groundation was founded in the fall of 1998 when three long time musicians Marcus Urani, Ryan Newman, and Harrison Stafford came together to form the core of the pioneering sound. They were later joined in 2000 by San Francisco based Jazz trumpeter David Chachere and the North Bay’s Kelsey Howard on trombone. Drummer Paul Spina (Les Claypool, Will Bernard’s Mother Bug) has been with the group since 2001. Harrison Stafford taught one of the only University courses on the History of Reggae Music at Sonoma State University from 1999 to 2001.
2006's "Dub Wars" was met with impressive reviews including 3 1/2 stars from Rolling Stone Magazine who said, “This collection gives the dub treatment to tracks from the group’s stellar albums Hebron’s Gate and We Free Again, adding a hypnotic resonance to their groove-based songs.”
