Jon Wayne And The Pain
Jon Wayne And The Pain
For nearly a decade, electronic reggae-dub innovators Jon Wayne and The Pain have been crafting a unique sound, one that features a mesmerizing blend of modern age electronic beats fused with upbeat traditional roots reggae and a fresh layer of grooving funk to keep the soul moving in all the right ways. The Twin Cities-based ensemble burst onto the festival scene in 2007 following their debut self-titled album, and has since built a highly devoted following through multi-dimensional jamming, extensive touring and thoughtful, relevant songwriting. Inscrutable and unpredictable, Jon Wayne and The Pain's cutting edge style has taken them across the nation to some of the country's biggest music festivals including Electric Forest, Summer Camp, Cali Roots and Wakarusa. Their transcendent live performances and fluid chemistry has propelled them to the forefront of a new generation of reggae music, and with an ever-changing musical landscape, it is evident that this Midwestern quartet is becoming a force to be reckoned with.

"Don't bury your thoughts; put your vision to reality, yeah!"
-Bob Marley, "Wake Up & Live"

Denver guitarist and vocalist Dave Halchak decided to put together a group of musicians to celebrate the music of Bob Marley, and pay tribute to the songs by creating some exciting jams, and throwing one fine party. The result was a show in February of 2013 on Marley's Birthday. The chemistry of this newfound group in rehearsal plus the success of the show inspired this new concept for a tribute band: Wake Up & Live.

Wake Up & Live pushes the boundaries of your normal "tribute" band by taking the music of Bob Marley into uncharted improvisational moments. This and the stellar arrangements create a unique and powerful twist on the Marley catalog. After six years, the Denver based band has made their mark on the premier stages of Colorado and beyond and has continued the growth since then.

The band features Dave Halchak on guitar and lead vocals, Keith Hicks on lead guitar & vocals, LaSha & Jamie Jay on vocals, Andrew Martin on keyboards, Neil Ross on bass and J.R Ranck on drums. There are sometimes featured percussionists, horn players and additional sounds as well so be sure to check them out in your town soon!
