Spiritual Rez Brings Reggae Funk Horn Party to Parrot

The Reggae/Funk Horn party Spiritual Rez explodes onto the Parrot stage with shows at 5:30, 9:00 and 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 8th and 9th.

Spiritual Rez, the Boston-based 6-piece reggae/funk horn party, starts with a dose of old-school Marley-Toots-Tosh reggae and infuses it with everything from Sun Ra Arkestra freak jazz to Steve Vai guitar pyrotechnics. Parrot regulars will recall their inspired shows during last year’s Fantasy Fest weekend.

Inventive intersections like these define Spiritual Rez, who has tirelessly toured the country promoting positive music and attitude. The band has played with international acts like George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Toots and the Maytals, as well as having founding Parliament Funkalelic member Bernie Worrell sit in on their live shows.

Winners of Boston Music Award for Best World Music Act and alumni of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, the band provides a unique blend of Reggae, Funk, Afrobeat and Rock to give one of the most energetic live shows round, blending chill island grooves with raucous urban tribal vibes.
