Calendar of Upcoming Events

Saturday April 22nd


Rise Up is a 4-piece band homegrown in Salinas, CA. spreading good vibes through reggae music.

Cruzah attempts to encapsulate the traditional Jamaican spirit and California outdoor lifestyle through our sound and compositions. We like to mix it up and cross musical styles and feels as well, from reggae and soul, to rock, to latin, to hip hop and back again... it's about the rhythm, getting folks dancing, and having fun! 
We are Influenced by (among others) Desmond Dekker, Sublime, The Mermen, Bob Marley, The Upsetters, The Expendables, Ozomatli, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, and 60's and 70's soul; while infusing a modern element. California soul and Roots Reggae elements are strong in our sound and our spirits. Original music written by Bloo Rafferty with accompanying instruments and collaboration/arrangements by the band from right here in Santa Cruz, CA.
