Dub Lounge International’s live show is as rootsy as they come. Ranging from original dancehall grooves to solid old school standards, guest vocalists are often invited to accompany their sultry 3-part harmony driven set. With a dub improv mentality and melodic meditative creations, DLI’s music empowers listeners and musicians alike.
Their latest and 4th release is “2011 Live Compilation”. Recorded from concerts over the past year, this album showcases a special San Diego 4/20 Concert, a KEXP live in-studio, and a Long Beach, CA performance.
