"Reggae from Seattle"

“Easy flowing reggae escapades that ascend into effervescent jams and rootsy rock anthems. Fundamentally joyful, High Ceiling lyrically takes time to delve intosocio/political topics of relevance.” says Andrew Frey (Maximum Ink Music Magazine). All of this infused with improvisation, defines the band's unique presence in the Northwest music and eclectic arts scenes.Always uplifting... conscious... adventurous... this six piece packs an extensive light presentation at all suitable stages and is best experienced in live settings amongst their well-known kindred and enthusiastic groups of fans.
