Soulful, melody-driven Iration, the chart-topping alternative reggae, pop, rock band will be performing at Montbleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe on Friday, February 15 at 9pm. Opening the evening’s festivities are three other high-profile touring reggae bands: reggae rockers from Georgia: Passafire; ‘Live Artist of the Year in The 2012 Pier Awards’ The Green;  and Pacific Dub, one
of the youngest and newest bands to solidify themselves as professionals within the Reggae-Rock scene.
Iration was formed in Isla Vista, CA and is made up of members Joseph Dickens (drums), Joseph King (Engineer), Cayson Peterson (Keyboard/Synth), Micah Pueschel (Guitar/Vox), Kai Rediske (Vocal/Percussion) and Adam Taylor (Bass). All members met while growing up in Hawaii but formed Iration after reconnecting in Santa Barbara, CA. They have since released two full-length albums, Time Bomb (2010) and No Time for Rest (2007), as well as three EP’s, New Roots (2006), Sample This EP (2008) and Fresh Grounds (2011). Time Bomb, which has sold 30K+ copies, hit #1 on the iTunes reggae album chart and remains within the top 20 on Billboard’s Reggae Album Chart to this day.
Time Bomb included: “Turn Around” (which spent 11 weeks at #1 on San Diego’s 91X, hit #1 on Riverside’s KCXX and on Santa Barbara’s KJEE, was in rotation at Honolulu’s KUCD and Sacramento’s KKDO, as well as being streamed on LA-based KROQ), “Time Bomb” (which reached #1 on Santa Barbara’s KJEE), and “Falling” (the single that has moved 70K units since inclusion on Time Bomb and Sample This EP, was an iTunes Discovery Download, also reached #1 on Santa Barbara’s KJEE, and #3 on Honolulu’s KUCD).
Their most recent release Fresh Grounds which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseeker’s Chart and #114 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The single from their Fresh Grounds EP “Summer Nights” reached #2 on the iTunes reggae singles chart. Combined, Iration has sold hundreds of thousands of singles from their recording catalog.
They recently finished recording their 3rd full-length album Automatic. The album combines elements of reggae, rock and pop to create a truly unique listening experience.
But the true essence of Iration is best captured live where they are able to fully demonstrate their original brand of soulful, melody driven reggae, pop and rock. And fans can see them at Montbleu on February 15.
Tickets are $22.50 in advance / $25 day of show (plus taxes/fees) and this is an all-ages venue. For more information call Montbleu at (775) 588-3515 or visit Ticketmaster.com.
