Looking for some “feel-good vibes” this weekend? Don’t miss out on Wilmington rock-reggae band Signal Fire this Saturday, March 26 at The Local.

The relatively new and increasingly popular group is filled out by:

Sean Gregory (lead vocals, guitar)

Ken Forrest (drums)

Cullen Seward (bass, vocals)

Carl Blackmon (keyboards)

Signal Fire

The “conscientious reggae-rockers” formed back in the fall of 2012. Before then, several of the members had played in various bands together, but every member had at least some background in touring with reggae groups.

In 2013, the band released its first studio album, Ignite. The album was an immediate hit, climbing to #8 on the iTunes U.S. reggae charts. The self-produced album was praised as an “uplifting mix of reggae, rock and blues with socially conscious lyrics and danceable rhythms.”

The members did not hesitate to dive head-first into the East Coast’s music scene, playing over 150 shows in the band’s first two years. Rolling with the momentum, the band even had the chance to open for reggae legends The Wailers at the House of Blues and share two sold out gigs with Collie Buddz. The band also had the opportunity to perform at the first California Roots: The Carolina Sessions in Wilmington.

Currently, the band is working on its second studio album, Lift Up, which is set for release sometime in August or September.

“We are touring the East Coast and beyond in support of our new album, Lift Up. The first single off the record will be released alongside a new music video in the next few weeks,” Gregory said.

You can check out the band’s music, videos and merchandise on Signal Fire’s website.

Saturday’s show at The Local will be the band’s first High Country performance. During the show, the group will give away two free tickets to the next California Roots: The Carolina Sessions event in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on April 9.

Opening act Of Good Nature will start off Saturday’s show. The Charlotte reggae-rock and funk band will surely kick off the night with some “feel-good vibes.”

So if you want a night of groovy rhythms and highly-danceable reggae, don’t forget to make it out to The Local on Saturday! The show will start at about 10 p.m.
