High-Octane Reggae Rockers Dale And The ZDubs Announce Camp Barefoot Festival Dates

Website: http://daleandthezdubs.com/
Who doesn't crave a jam in the summertime? DC Reggae Rockers, Dale and the ZDubs do. The reggae rockers are part of this year’s lineup at Camp Barefoot Music and Arts Festival next month, August 21-23. If you've never heard of Camp Barefoot, strangely enough, that's a good thing. Hidden deep in the forests of Bartow, WV, Camp Barefoot hosts one of the live-tronica, jam, and funk scene's best kept secrets. With less than 3000 in attendance, the festival fosters a close-knit and intimate setting on far less than a square mile of land.

Festival-goers who think Phish or Blues Traveler pretty much defines improvisational post-hippie rock have much to learn. The jam band style has many variations, and one of the most popular is a kind of down-tempo reggae rock, hemp-fueled, beach-lifestyle philosophy that makes reggae-rockers Dale and the ZDubs’ stand out for not living up to that cliche.

Musically they've been described as "reggae that fluctuates flawlessly between a mix of Rage Against The Machine, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bradley Nowell. (Sublime)". Their live performances are anything but laid-back and known for igniting live frenzied crowd participation. Their invitation to perform at Camp Barefoot this year has firmly cemented the band as one of a few on a short list worthy to rep the rock reggae genre since Sublime introduced it in the early 90's.

Landing major producers and engineers for their records and opening for national touring acts are a just a couple of accomplishments for the young DC Band. Dale & The ZDubs have also headlined shows with Ballyhoo!, and BadFish,--basically becoming the go-to DC band to open for national touring jam and rock reggae acts.

Their latest and first full length release, "Clear The Smoke," was produced by Jim Ebert (Everclear, Cowboy Mouth) and engineered by Sean Russell (Damien Marley, Bruno Mars). The title of the album, "Clear The Smoke," seems rather fitting for this five-piece band, whose dance-happy music blends elements of reggae, rock, blues, pop and soul with lyrics that espouse a laissez-faire, don't give a ***k, pot-fueled philosophy. But don't be fooled. Dale and the ZDubs are just another laid-back reggae rock band. Lyrically they write about love and relationships-more emotional issues than just the hemp-fueled lifestyle typically espoused in rock reggae.

Even though they ground their sound in reggae and feel-good summertime vibes, and add in dashes of down-tempo, there's plenty of hefty punches of psychedelic rock, funk and hard-hitting bass lines. It makes them a perfect fit for Camp Barefoot's lineup. This is a party band with an edge, the sort of act that spends most of its time playing in shore clubs along the Eastern Seaboard, but that probably would fit in just as easily at Warped tour as they would playing tourist-friendly beach clubs in Hawaii or Southern California.

There's a whole world of this stuff out there, from acoustic singer-songwriters like Jack Johnson to alternative rockers 311. If you like your reggae with a punch and listen to genre bending artists inspired by Sublime and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, then this is your soundtrack…and Dale and the ZDubs are the band to see when they play two sets at Camp Barefoot Music Festival on August 21st and 23rd.

See them on the side stage on Thursday, Aug.21 and on the main stage Saturday, Aug 23 @ 2pm.
