ABOUT THE BAND
The Originators are a group of Musicians from all corners of San Diego, CA and they have each been playing Reggae music for more than ten years. Each member is a lover of Reggae Music and brings their own personal style to the sound. Together the band brings a mix of influences from 1960's, 70's and 80's Reggae; songs range from Traditional Reggae of the 1960's to UK Lovers Rock to Roots Reggae of the 1980's.
The music is Roots Reggae with a vocal style that is heavily influenced by the Motown Sound of American R&B and lyrics that are a product of lead vocalist Blaine Mazzetti's life on the Rincon Indian Reservation. The Originators have a sound like no other and will keep the vibes nice all night with original Roots music.
