IRATION and ATMOSPHERE are hitting the road this summer bringing their Sunshine and Summer Nights Tour nationwide with special guests Passafire and The Grouch with DJ Fresh.
Iration is a reggae/pop group from Santa Barbara, California. All members originally hail from Hawaii. They play a mix of reggae, dub, pop, and rock. The group is one of the leading bands in the genre of sunshine reggae, Iration has a natural affinity for reggae and island sounds. Their love and appreciation for music spans across a wide range of styles and genres including rock, pop, R&B and funk. Over the past 15 years, the celebrated five-piece – Micah Pueschel [Lead Vocals / Guitar], Adam Taylor [Bass], Joe Dickens [Drums], Cayson Peterson [Keyboard / Synth] and Micah Brown [Guitar / Vocals] – have perfected their distinct hybrid style of music, blending all influences together, and the brought all that and more with Passafire and Atmosphere opening up for them on this tour, and they all complement each other, to bring on hell of a kick ass summer show.
Iration has been touring nationally since 2008, performing at festivals nationwide from Lollapalooza to Sunfest and Hangout, closing stages at festivals like Bottlerock and Outside Lands. The Hawaiian-bred musicians look forward to spreading their original sound and ‘Aloha spirit’ all the while never forgetting to get a surf in when possible.
Iration hit The Amp stage in St. Augustine Florida to a heated-up crowd that have been waiting through amazing hot and sweaty, humid Florida weather…but they were ready to get their groves on no matter how hot and sweaty everyone was, the band hit the stage with a new song ” The Style ” and the crowd came alive and started to dance and sway to the song like they have all heard it before. They continued to please the crowd and fans with songs like, “Automatic” and fan favorite “falling” that the massive crowd was singing word for word. The band didn’t stop there with song that every fan is going to know and jam and grove like “Cruisin'” and one of their more famous song “Time Bomb” that the place went crazy to hear and see the band play. This night was one for the ages as you got 4 bands that where a bit different but also had the same kinda groove to them that made the place just one hell of happy place to be for a few out, to just let your mind go and let the music take you away to only the place you want to be, and that is what about this kinds of music is all about, it put in a place with the stress of reality to leave the mind and body for night., and we all need that once in a while.
Atmosphere and Passafire both came out swinging as well. Opened up and warming up the crowd that really didn’t need to be warmed up. The show started early for a weekday show, but the fans showed up for the openers and showed them love before Iration came on to headline the show. I had never seen Atmosphere; put I am a new fan…The dude in an incredible rapper and it really got the crowd up and moving as did Passifire. They did an incredible job and play some tight music and the crowd seemed to enjoy them as well. So, all around it was a great collaboration of great band for a great tour.
Absolutely no complaints about the performers! So much fun & they all put on an amazing show! Highly recommend seeing them and will 100% be seeing them again!
Below is the setlist for the Boca show, but the band played the same song in St. Augustine the night before.
