About Deep Roots
The band started amid the year 2006, with Chino(Elard), Alonso, Jesus, Quique,Paul and other guys, we were called"El Nino del Atico"and we played spanish rock and reggae covers, and a few originals. As time went by some members departed but the vibes kept flowing, so in the summer of 07' the jammings started with Chino on the drums, Alonso on the guitar, Paul on the bass,Quique in the percussions,Melodica,keyboard,Vocal.and Jesus singing. We stayed like this for a couple of months, getting ready to play live shows. The name came while practicing and reading the bible we came upon "Deep Roots." We played around Naples with that line-up for 3 months. Then, Tyler and Melinda joined forces with Deep Roots and a more complex sound was created. For personal reasons Paul had to leave and Alan came in the scene. With this line-up we started playing the steady gig "Reggae Sundays feat. Deep Roots" at South Street City Grill, where the band gained more local recognition. Looking to expand our sound we incorporated Jen Zen and Marissa on the back up vocals, and like this we kept playing, getting some live gigs and playing private events. Deep Roots influnces vary alot, we all come from diferent backgrounds and it's reflected on the music. Bands like The Wailers, Steel Pulse, Alpha Blondie, The Gladiators, Culture, Midnite, among others, are the biggest influences in the band, but also classical rock bands, jazz, and blues acts inspire us and fill our mp3 players. Our sound is unique and invigorating, trying to reach everyone out there who's up for a good time and a experience.
