Jon Wayne & The Pain
Jon Wayne & The Pain
Electronic reggae-dub innovators, Jon Wayne and The Pain have been mesmerizing fans for nearly a decade, with their signature JWP cosmic-blend of electronic beats, fused with upbeat roots-reggae music and a psychedelic funk.

The Twin Cities based ensemble burst onto the scene in 2007, following their debut self-titled album. Since then, they have been building a dedicated Midwest loyal-fan following through extensive touring, influential songwriting and multi-dimensional jamming.

Over the past few years, the band has gained steadfast momentum with invitations to perform on some of the nations most renowned music and art festivals, as Electric Forest, Summer Camp, Cali Roots and Wakarusa to name a few. Their transcendent live performances, loyal fan-following, cosmic reggae jam sound and fluid chemistry are what ensures the innovative band of JWP, a mainstay position in the ever-evolving music scene.
Wake Up and Live - A Bob Marley Tribute
Don't bury your thoughts; put your vision to reality, yeah!
-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 six years, the Denver based band has made their mark on the premier stages of Colorado and beyond and has continued the growth since then.

The band features Dave Halchak on guitar and lead vocals, Keith Hicks on lead guitar & vocals, LaSha & Jamie Jay on vocals, Andrew Martin on keyboards, Neil Ross on bass and J.R Ranck on drums. There are sometimes featured percussionists, horn players and additional sounds as well so be sure to check them out!
