Roots Roundup plays a high energy hybrid of globe-spanning music, mashing up the sounds of rock’n roll, reggae, ska, afro-beat, folk, funk and pure old school punk rock
Originally formed in 1985 in a small apartment in East Vancouver, Roots Roundup became widely known throughout Canada during the late 80′s and early 90′s as one of Canada’s hardest working, hardest touring and hardest rockin’ worldbeat dance bands. They released numerous independent recordings including “Get Rooted”, “What We Do”, “Syzygy” and in 1997, “Rootrospective”, a 16 song collection spanning their entire recording career.
Core Roots Roundup members Greg Hathaway, Dave Hannah (Dym-E-Tree), Barry Taylor, Keith Rose, David Hathaway, Mark Campbell, Ford Pier and David Macanulty recently reunited and have performed shows in Roberts Creek, Vancouver, Victoria, Cortes Island, Denman Island and Saltspring Island.
