"Don't bury your thoughts; put your dream to reality!"
-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 just a year, the Denver based band has already made their mark on the premier stages of Colorado.
Check them out on Facebook, ReverbNation, Soundcloud or LIVE!
The band features Dave Halchak on guitar and lead vocals, David Lott on lead guitar, Andrew Martin on keyboards, Jay Are Ranck on drums, Neil Ross Hebbert on bass, LaSha Waldroup & Jamie Jay on vocals. There are sometimes featured percussionists, horn players and additional sounds as well so be sure to check them out in your town soon!
Naka G has been a master and disaster at his craft since 1995. Always having love and interest for the art of the DJ, Naka picked up a set of used Technics 1200s and possibly the worst mixer ever and the rest, as they say, is history. Never sticking to one type of music, Naka believes in working the crowd with an open format. "I don't ever show up with a set..." Naka has said. "I just show up with an open mind, feel out the crowd and let the music do the rest." Naka is an accomplished resident DJ for the Summer and Winter X Games, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Burton US Open Snowboard World Championships and the Burton Canadian Open, a resident of the former Jeep King of the Mountain/48STRAIGHT Tour and has also spun for many other action sport events including, The Ski Tour, Crankworx, The Aspen/Snowmass Open, Aspen/Snowmass Spring Jam and ThanksJibbing, KickAspen Big Air, FIS World Cup and The Red Bull SnoCross Big Air. Naka has also opened at live concerts for the likes of DJ Z-Trip, Mixmaster Mike, Junkie XL, Swollen Members, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Steel Pulse, Method Man, The Roots, The Pharcyde, Ozomatli, Ice Cube, Blackalicious, The 2Live Crew, The Wailers, Stephen and Damian Marley, Naughty By Nature, Slightly Stoopid, The Hood Internet, Thievery Corporation, DJ Vice, DJ Logic, Pretty Lights, Guru and Jazzmattaz, Common, Nas, Grandmaster Flash, Santogold and Trevor Andrew, The Beatnuts, De La Soul, Faux Punk, Boombox, Rahzel and DJ JS1, Shiny Toy Guns, Trouble Andrew, Kid Koala, Team Canada DJs, Pitbull, Remix Artist Collective.
