For a mix of hip hop with funk, reggae, jazz, folk, and rock head on over to the Michael Franti and Spearhead show. When you hear this band play you will definitely hear the reggae influence, but you will also hear songs that have nods to bands like U2, The Clash and the sounds of Mowtown.
Lead by frontman/poet/musician/social activist Michael Franti the band was formed in 1994 and continues to push the envelope when it comes to making politically charged music. The music is about the world we live in and how to cope with it. Practical stuff with a great beat.
