      Melo Productions has announced that reggae groups Easy Star All-Stars, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, and Tatanka will play a show at Venue on Thursday, September 18. 

      Easy Star All-Stars has established itself as one of the top international reggae acts since its live debut in 2003.

      On this tour, the group is returning to its first release to celebrate the decade anniversary of Dub Side of the Moon, a complete reggae re-imagining of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.

      Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad is an American jam reggae band based in Rochester, New York whose eclectic blend of roots reggae, dub, and afrobeat has garnered it a large and growing following. 

      The band's first release on Easy Star Records, Steady, will be released Sept 30, during this tour.

      Tatanka specializes in the sounds of dub, progressive reggae, and electro soundscapes.

      The Denver dub warriors released their first studio E.P., Sounds in Technicolor, last year.
