As Monterey woke up for day two of Cali Roots, there was a heavy overcast throughout the neighborhood. Thankfully clouds and thick fog are nothing new to reggae enthusiasts, and the festival proceeded without missing a beat. Day two was a day which focused on roots, both of Reggae and heritage. The artists that played Saturday had a much more thematic tie to family bonds, both those that we are born with, and the family we chose as we go through life.

It’s that time again, folks. The one and only California Roots is coming around again, and this year’s festival promises to be the best one yet. Over just less than a decade, Cali Roots has evolved from a small get together into a family reunion of sorts for Reggae fans from near and far. For so many, Cali Roots is more than three days of Reggae music, it is a small peek into what life can be in a world with a little less animosity, and a little more love.

J Boog (Jerry Afemata), a reggae singer of Samoan descent was born in Long Beach and raised in Compton, CA. He is the youngest of seven brothers and one sister who come from hard-working parents that relentlessly instilled a strong cultured household.

J Boog has just premiered his latest music video “Good Cry” featuring Chaka Demus. A true work of art from his most recent album entitled Wash House Ting released in November, 2016. Filmed in Kingston, Jamaica's Majesty Gardens, J Boog and his film crew were able to set up camp thanks to legendary dancehall hype man and sound specialist Joe Lickshot.

J Boog is back with his highly anticipated new album, Wash House Ting, which was released on November 18, 2016 on Wash House Music Group. He is now in the midst of a massive national tour which began January 12th with support from Jemere Morgan and Jo Mersa Marley.

A little over a month ago Samoan Reggae Artist and Compton Native J Boog announced the release date (Nov 18, 2016) of his long awaited album. Five years after releasing his sophomore album Backyard Boogie J Boog and his Bay Area/Hawaii based Record Label The Wash House Music Group, have finally released J Boog's much anticipated third album Wash House Ting.
